Resonance: The New Chemistry of Love
The relationship for lovers of all ages
Think about your relationship for a moment. Do you have the intimacy you desire? Do you have the freedom needed for your personal journey? Resonance: The New Chemistry of Love proposes that it’s possible to have both – if you balance the scales of independence and intimacy, commitment and self-interest.
In a clear and affirming voice, Barbara Miller Fishman tells the stories of couples she has seen, the pitfalls they encounter and the peak experiences of love they attain as they discover resonance. Dr. Fishman describes three types of union: merged, exchange, and resonant. In the merged union, couples give up much of their personal freedom, and so feel trapped. In the exchange union couples forego intimacy, and so feel lonely. In contrast, resonant couples support each other in the search for both intimacy and personal freedom as they manage power, express anger, handle money, and create their sexual relationship.
