Create Lasting Romance by Knowing Me, Knowing You


21 January 2004 (Barrie, ON) Valentine's Day is just around the corner and "love is in the air". People are swept up in a quest for romance. But is it possible to keep romance alive once this holiday is over? "Yes!" says Carol Brethour Stephens, co-author of a new book for engaged couples. "The solution to keeping romance alive in any long-term relationship is to develop true intimacy-the intimacy of knowing one another's feelings and thoughts, our souls if you will. Intimacy, not mystery, is the true essence of romance."


Carol and her husband Malcolm Stephens of Barrie, Ontario, wrote Knowing Me, Knowing You: A Multiple-Choice Quiz For Engaged Couples with the goal of helping couples to foster intimacy and prepare better for marriage. The book has already been promoted to over eighteen million people by American radio advice guru, Dr. Laura Schlessinger. During the promotion, it achieved an top 100 ranking of 77th on May 28th. The couple has been invited to be guest speakers at the Vancouver Wellness Show ( on February 13 at 6:30 p.m.


Knowing Me, Knowing You is based on the belief that by thoroughly knowing one another-each other's beliefs, pet peeves, and expectations about the endless details regarding family, friends, children, finances, careers, etc.-a couple can discover areas of potential conflict and can then discuss them proactively.


This may sound intimidating, but this two-book set makes it easy and fun because the issues are laid out in a multiple-choice quiz. There are no essays and no trick questions-just common sense issues set in a multiple-choice format. All each partner has to do is check the box that applies to him/her.


There are two books-one for the men and one for the women. In 18 chapters, each comprehensive quiz covers topics from faith to family to finances-and includes many points most couples don't think to discuss. The man and woman complete their quizzes independently, and then compare answers to find potential problem areas, which they can then discuss.


This easy-to-use book highlights areas where real-life couples clash and where they succeed. Through the discussions prompted by this book, readers will have discovered and developed common values and strategies that will help them to cope with life's inevitable challenges with unity.


With some of life's stressors already sorted out, couples can celebrate the romance that comes with true intimacy. That's a great way to keep the romance alive.
