Many of us have heard about the five love languages, but is there a realistic alternative for the messy and serious conversations that arise in every relationship? Enter David and Julie Bulitt.

Married for 33 years, David, a divorce lawyer, and Julie, a family therapist, have both been witness to families struggling with life’s most difficult challenges. At the same time, they have weathered their own challenges at home: raising four daughters, two biological and two adopted, and dealing with one child’s mental health and behavioral issues. What they’ve learned about saving a marriage or knowing when to call it quits, when to turn to professionals or when to try tough love, could fill a book—and it does.

The “5 Core Conversations for Couples” tackles every corner of relationships with the wisdom, knowledge, and best advice culled from David and Julie’s unique experiences. Drawn from notes of their discussions, chats and arguments — not always sober — and filled with frank, funny stories, it tackles the basics with openness and honesty. From getting along to parenting, communication, and sex, it also covers hard-to-discuss issues like addiction, infertility, pornography, and family silence.

Take a look inside the hearts and minds of two marriage professionals to gain a fresh perspective into your own relationships and to have valuable and more frequent conversations with those you love.
