Why This Marriage/Relationship Book

The main reason for writing a book comes from my disappointment that our higher institutions have not recognized the need to teach about marriage and long-term relationships, even if the concept is similar to one in which they are actively investing their brainpower; People management. I assert that a relationship is about managing people, and People Management is taught and celebrated in our universities under the umbrella of Leadership and Leadership Skills. However, the people who run our institutions have not made the connection between the issues of leadership and marriage and relationships, therefore, they are not spending their intellectual capital on the latter subjects. This means that the public is left on its own to figure out in the dark the intricacies of marriage, while at the same time they are asked to make sense of their careers and future occupations; a dual responsibility that is too much for anyone.

When it is left up to the general public to teach themselves about marriage and long-term relationships, the result should not be surprising to any of us because the general public is overwhelmed with this dual responsibility. They do not have the time nor the inclination to figure out marriage even if it means it is in their best interest to do so, while trying to figure out their economic and professional futures at the same time.
On a more subtle but nonetheless important point, the result should not be a surprise since people, overwhelmed with feelings, tend to think about the type and shape of their relationship only when they are filled with love and emotions for their partner and not anytime soon.

I concludes that, at this specific stage, it is not the right time for people to try to define the nature and quality of their relationship because doing it right would require a deliberative, reasonable approach and that is hard to have when everything is hot and heavy. If we do not want people to try to solve their marital and relationship problems by themselves in a vacuum, then the decent, prudent, and sensible thing to do is to provide them with a simple, applicable formula they can refer to beforehand, so they don’t wreck their lives forever. This formula or the secret to the formula is to study Life Simplified Concepts (LSC) by reading this book.
