Are you and your partner having trouble? I've got five book recommendations from couples therapists for relationships going through a rough patch. Whether your problems are big or small, one of these books might help you find your way back to happiness.
Romantic partnerships can take a lot of hard work to maintain. Sometimes, you might think it would be easier to just be single. And while that may be true for some couples — as it certainly was for me and my ex — others are truly at their happiest when they are together, rain or shine.
In all of this, please remember that the absence of physical abuse does not mean your relationship is a healthy one. It isn't your job to fix your partner, and it isn't your fault if they hurt you.
If you know your relationship is worth saving, or even if you just know that you want it to be, the books on the list below can help you find your way toward reconciliation and mutual respect, according to the couples therapists we spoke to for this article. Read them alone, or with your partner, and try to put the advice they have for you to good use.
