Many confuse obsession and care-taking with true love. In The Marriage and Relationship Junkie, Sherry Gaba does an excellent job of pointing out how they are different. She invites the reader to not only stop and look at their behavior patterns, but guides the reader through the tangles of pseudo-relationships to find an intimate relationship with heart.

Brenda Schaeffer Author of Is It Love or Is It Addiction? January 29, 2018

We create relationships in our lives to fully study and express the issues within ourselves that need to be addressed. In Sherry Gaba’s new book, The Marriage and Relationship Junkie, she explores this truth and leads you to discover what you need to address personally, as opposed to “what is wrong with them.” In the final analysis, most couples come together to explore the same issues from different perspectives. When they both can be objective enough to realize this, real change can be experienced.
