“Elizabeth Earnshaw’s gentle guidance will help any type of couple, whether they are dealing with small day-to-day problems or long-standing conflicts. She takes an accessible approach to couples therapy on the page, making these relationship tools feel easy—and even fun.”

—Lori Gottlieb, LMFT, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone


A contemporary, culturally inclusive, and easy-to-digest relationship book for the modern age
Today more than ever, we’re willing to do what it takes to make relationships work. In fact, between 2008 and 2016, the divorce rate plummeted 18 percent. Couples are choosing to stay together—but most don’t have the right tools or knowledge to do it successfully. Amid all the advice, what’s missing? A trustable, inclusive guide to navigating the most difficult issues we face.
Elizabeth Earnshaw is a renowned Gottman therapist, founder of A Better Life Therapy, and influential Instagram therapist who has helped transform countless relationships. With I Want This to Work, she presents for today’s generation the most effective and proven steps for relationship success.
“We’re in a cultural moment,” she says, “where people are hungry to absorb the principles for healthy relationships. This book answers that call.”
Here, couples will learn to work with the three challenges they must tackle to repair and strengthen their relationships: conflict, healing, and connection. In a supportive and relatable voice, Elizabeth simplifies complex concepts and provides core insights, exercises, and reflections to take these tested principles from the page and into real life.
Culturally tuned in, LGBTQIA+ friendly, and written for both married and unmarried couples, this book brings us an accessible guide to healing relationships and creating enduring intimacy.
