The book we’ve been reading is called How We Love by Milan and Kay Yerkovich. It has been absolutely fascinating. We’ve learned so much about how our family of origin affects the ways we do relationships as adults.
The Yerkovich’s discuss how our early life experiences create an “intimacy imprint”–an underlying blueprint that shapes our behavior, beliefs, and expectations in all relationships, especially our marriage. They identify four types of injured imprints that combine in marriage to trap couples in a repetitive dance of pain.
If you’re looking for a good read that will strengthen your marriage and your relationships in general, How We Love is a great choice!
