Relationship Rights (and Wrongs) is a solid guide to assessing healthy and unhealthy relationship behaviors, in oneself and others, and determining where one's current relationship stands. Using traffic light colors as a metaphor--green for personal rights and qualities that apply whether or not one is in a relationship, yellow for the benefits to gain from a relationship (with a warning against relationships that do not supply these benefits), and red one's rights to physical and emotional safety (it's time to stop the relationship if hurtful behaviors persist). Relationship Rights (and Wrongs) helps define and elucidate difficult emotional concepts and the building blocks of what is needed to point a relationship toward lifelong commitment. An excellent resource for singles, couples, and married people, Relationship Rights (and Wrongs) above all stresses the need for partners in a relationship to recognize one another as individual human beings and cherish their bond borne of mutual respect. Highly recommended.
