With Everybody Marries the Wrong Person, Meinecke effectively maps out the ways to regain the magic and make mutual love everlasting.

She reveals the twenty misleading beliefs about romantic relationships and lays bare the big six warning signs of users and abusers, substance abuse/dependence, mental cruelty, physical and/or sexual battery, anger, controlling behavior and under functioning/under responsibility. Meinecke skillfully guides the reader through the steps to enhance communication, restore intimacy, find satisfying mutual interests and share a revitalized, fulfilling relationship with one another.
