Love Busters are habits that destroy romantic love. They develop soon after

Dr. Willard F. Harley, Jr., has shown couples how to create romantic love
in his best seller, His Needs, Her Needs. But in Love Busters, he helps
couples avoid losing romantic love by recognizing and overcoming
thoughtless and selfish habits. These habits are common in every marriage and
not only destroy romantic love, but also prevent couples from resolving their
In this book, Dr. Harley teaches couples to recognize and defeat five common but
dangerous Love Busters:
When these are unchecked,
consideration and thoughtfulness turn into self-centeredness and
thoughtlessness. Romantic love is the victim and with it goes all hope for a
and Independent Behavior.
Romantic love is not the only victim, however. Dr. Harley also demonstrates how
Love Busters prevent couples from resolving common marital conflicts. He
illustrates this with conflicts involving friends and relatives, career choices,
financial planning, children and sex. When Love Busters are overcome, these
conflicts are easily resolved.
Love Busters can be so destructive that many don't feel it would be possible to restore love to a marriage after the damage they do. Two chapters, Restoring Love to Your Marriage after Drug or Alcohol Addiction and Restoring Love to Your Marriage after Infidelity provide illustrations of how even the most destructive Love Busters do not necessarily destroy a marriage. Once Love Busters are eliminated, even these marriages can thrive.
There are break-outs throughout the book to help emphasize important points and Key Principles listed at the end of each chapter. There are also questions for you and your spouse to consider together after you read each chapter. These questions are designed to help you put into motion a plan to eliminate the Love Busters that exist in your marriage.
Please Note:The newest version of Love Busters was published in 2008. But the new version of it's accompanying workbook, 5 Steps to Romantic Love, won't be published until the summer of 2009 with a 2009 copyright date. Until then, you may find that the 2002 workbook doesn't quite match the 2008 book, Love Busters, exactly. So if you want the accompanying workbook to the 2008 edition of Love Busters, wait to order it this summer. We sell only the newest editions of all of Dr. Harley's books, but we give you this warning in case you prefer to order these books elsewhere.
