"What the heck is my partner thinking?" is a common refrain in romantic relationships, and with good reason. Every person is wired for love differently, with different habits, needs, and reactions to conflict. The good news is that most people's minds work in predictable ways and respond well to security, attachment, and rituals, making it possible to actually neurologically prime the brain for greater love and fewer conflicts. Wired for Love is a complete insider's guide to understanding a partner's brain and promoting love and trust within a romantic relationship. Readers learn ten scientific principles they can use to avoid triggering fear and panic in their partners, manage their partners' emotional reactions when they do become upset, and recognize when the brain's threat response is hindering their ability to act in a loving way. By learning to use simple gestures and words, readers can learn to put out emotional fires and help their partners feel more safe and secure. The no-fault view of conflict in this book encourages readers to move past a ""warring brain"" mentality and toward a more cooperative ""loving brain"" understanding of the relationship. Based in the sound science of neurobiology, attachment theory, and emotion regulation research, this book is essential reading for couples and others interested in understanding the complex dynamics at work behind love and trust in intimate relationships.

Committing yourself fully to a loving partnership--a "we"--can be one of the most beautiful and fulfilling experiences you'll ever have. Yet as anyone in a long-term relationship will tell you, it can also be one of the most challenging. Almost half of all first marriages end in divorce, and chances go down from there. So, how do you beat the odds? In We Do, psychotherapist Stan Tatkin provides a groundbreaking system for helping couples create meaningful, enduring relationships. According to Tatkin, all couples--once major deal-breakers are out of the way--have the potential for long-term relationship success. But relationships don't thrive for the reasons we think they do, such as shared values or good communication. Far more influential are psychobiological factors, including attachment styles, arousal regulation, family history, and social-emotional intelligence. We Do guides couples through exercises, questions, and real-world challenges that will help them both ensure they are with the right partner and prevent future problems before they arise.
