Book: Attract Love, Intimacy & Money

Doug Welpton is a board certified psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, and family therapist, a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Medical School. His  book, Attract Love, Intimacy & Money, helps people replace their dysfunctional mindsets that limit them with mindsets that empower them to fulfill themselves, to become the best they can be!

Questions:

1.       Is being equals important in a marriage?

2.       How do you determine equality?

3.       What if partners perceive their equality or inequality differently?

4.       What happens to marriages when partners do not feel  like equals?

5.       Who loses; the stronger or the weaker partner?

6.       Who wins: the partner who is in control or the partner who is out of control?

7.       What do unequal partners do about their resentment?

8.       How do partners change it when they don’t feel like equals?

9.       Can they change to become more equal?

10.    Who loses if they become equals?

11.   Can you make someone an equal?

12.   Do spouses win together or can one win at the other’s expense?

13.   I think these should get us into a fun and exciting discussion.
