Author Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil, PhD announces her book "Make Up Don't Break Up" is getting enough attention to be in the running for an award. "Voting is still open, so I am thrilled to be in the running," says Dr. Bonnie.
Dr. Bonnie dispenses advice for couples thinking of divorciing, cheating, and breaking up, with a tireless mission to help couples learn how to navigate relationship difficulties, connect and communicate, listen to each other using empathy, and develop emotional intimacy.
"Everyone has a craving for connection. It is biological. However, so many couples are perplexed about how to connect with each other in ways that lead to feelings of emotional safety, security, and happiness." With accompanying DVD Falling in Love and Staying in Love, Make Up Don't Break Up offers advice on how to solve the age old problems of staying emotionally connected while developing closer ties to one another.
"Love isn't a mystery, but keeping love alive takes skills. The skills I teach become the glue that keeps couples together during difficult times," explains Dr. Bonnie.
Couples stray or contemplate divorce when their needs aren't being met. Supporting this theory is the survey showing more women sign up on the cheating website AshleyMadison.com, and visit divorce attorneys the day after Valentine's Day--a day when many women feel neglected or forgotten.

"Issues in a relationship are due to unmet needs. I teach couples how to meet their partner's needs. When couples learn those skills, the desire for looking outside or leaving the relationship diminishes," Dr. Bonnie says, who adds that the payoff for relationship work results in increased happiness overall.
"Make Up Don't Break Up", recently revised with new chapters on male intimacy, teaches couples how to find love and make their committment last. The new edition of the book offers a companion DVD Falling in Love and Staying In Love, and is for single or couples. The book has a foreword by Dr. Harville Hendrix, founder of Imago Relationship International who wrote, "Make Up Don't Break Up is among the most helpful, complete, and positive manuals for saving a relationship that I have seen."
