Introduction
Do you realize that in the year that we've known eachother, we've never argued?”
 We were in a log cabin in Central California, celebratingour first anniversary of meeting, and it was just startingto become clear to us that our relationship was out of theordinary. In the years since then, we have been astoundedagain and again by the peaceful nature of our union. We live with an amazing lack of conflict and an ever increasingexperience of joy, ease and harmony.

12Secrets of a Successful Relationship Revealed
is so profound, that we both feel compelled to share it withothers.Our goal is not a small one. We wish to be a part of spreading peace on Earth between people. We are convincedthat some of the things we have learned from our timetogether can be applied to any and all relationships, rom­antic or not. It's not our intention to offer rules for how relationships should be, for every one is different. Instead, we have chosen to share how we are, with the idea that whensomething resonates, you will be able to apply it in your own way, and by doing so, bring more peace and harmony into your life. After some years of experiencing our unusually successfulunion, we started to explore it in writing together. We chosethe forum of a blog, and for several years wrote back andforth to each other. At a certain point, we reviewed all the blogs, and a number of themes emerged, which we have puttogether in this book. We wrote the introduction to eachtheme and then selected blog entries to illustrate and expandon them. The themes are tightly interwoven, so the writingsin each chapter echo and connect to the others.These ideas are simple but very powerful. We believe thatif you are open to the possibility of a different way of relat­ing, of changing your frame of reference, a magical trans­formation can take place. We know from our experience thatit is real and tangible: not a theory, not thoughts, not a col­lection of ideas. We hope you can find inspiration for yourown life in what we have shared.
