Summary The good news: There are over 60 million couples living together in the United States (not to mention those not living together). The bad news: Statistics show over 50% of those couples will break up. The problem: People get mad, stop talking and drift apart. The solution: A book with a simple philosophy and a technique that help couples communicate better, stay connected, love and laugh a lot more, as well as, a unique way of dealing with the annoyances, pet peeves and problems that occur within every relationship. "Kiss Me Penalties and Love You Bites: The Affection Connection" is a book that celebrates being in love that also teaches readers a simple and fun way to enjoy the everyday work involved in loving someone and how to end up happier by doing so. Unlike lengthy relationship books written by medical professionals this one-of-a-kind book, written by a real couple with 20+ years of experience, is designed to be an easy read and a lighthearted, funny look inside a real relationship and a way of life that is obviously working. For years people have been asking Burke and Susan Ewing, "How could you possibly be so happy?" Usually followed by "You have such a great relationship. You're so lucky." Their reply, "Luck has nothing to do with it." It's work. Hard work sometimes but Burke and Susan have created a way of life that makes that work fun. Let's face it, stress surrounds us and sometimes we take it out on the ones we love. Not intentionally, of course, but stress seems to come out in the way we communicate with one another. Kiss Me Penalties and Love You Bites: The Affection Connection is for anyone out there looking for a creative way to communicate with his or her partner and a technique guaranteed to make them smile, making love less work, more fun.
