They will also bring us new gifts. As Kingma explains, these transformations should not be feared; instead, they represent a real opportunity.
Daphne Rose Kingma on Love’s Varied and Divine Corridors
In the past, conventional relationships were often destroyed by an overemphasis on the nuts and bolts of psychology, on working to achieve the unattainable “perfect relationship” while ignoring our most vital selves–our souls. The glorious message of The Future of Love is that the disturbing changes we are all experiencing are actually part of the soul’s plan, as it breaks down outdated conventions to bring us a new, fuller understanding of futurs.

Tge with This Book. Sep 26, Libertine rated it really liked it Shelves: According to author Daphne Rose Kingma in her book, The Future of Love, there are five main myths about intimate relationships.
The first is that traditional, legal heterosexual marriage is the ultimate relationship form that all successful relationships must eventually become. Those who believe in this group people into four categories: The second is that all successful relationships must be daily — seven days a week. Never mind that dailiness can makes us too familiar with one another and lead partners to take one another for granted.
The third myth is that all successful relationships must be domestic, that one must live full time with their partner. We’ve all heard people say, “I love Soandso, kkngma I could never live with him her “, and they break up the relationship because of cuture, which daphen based on the domestic myth.
Dispense with the myth, and continue to enjoy such relationships on their own terms. The fourth myth is all successful relationships must be exclusive — sexually and otherwise. In addition to the customary expectation of sexual exclusivity, most people unrealistically expect their partners to meet every other need they have. This is unrealistic, because our partners are “mere daphnd who love you, but futture not gods who lingma make your every dream come true.
The fifth myth is that all successful relationships must be forever — until death do us part. This expectation came about when the life expectancy was nowhere near what it is now and when marriage was more a practical relationship of survival, rather than a love match.
People then promising “until death do us part” had, if they were lucky, 20 futuree of “forever”, and did not face the prospect of many years living in an “empty nest”. But people live longer now, life fugure about more than just mere survival, and people evolve, change,and grow during their longer lifespans.
A partner who was right for us at 20 might not be the same one who is right at 40, 60, etc. To end a relationship that longer fits doesn’t mean it was a failure; it was right in its proper time, and it’s simply time to move on. The only fault with this book, in my opinion, was an excessive amount of superfluous psychobabble, but I simply skipped that to roze to the book’s core message.
Feb 01, gabrielle rated it liked it. For me, this book was about 1: The basic premise is that expecting humans to “mate for life” ie the institution of marriage made sense when we had year lifespans, and doesn’t now. The theories are interesting, but she doesn’t do a lot of backing them up, or give instructions on how we’re all supposed to get where we’re going the new styles of relationships.
Maybe we’re expected to already know.
Aug 19, Kundan rated it it was amazing. My Favorite book of all time! I liked it so much I put my money where my mouth is, and bought a kngma copies of it and tose it away to my friends! Oct 26, Yitka rated it really liked it.
The first few chapters turned me off kinbma little bit, with their talk of God and abstract, more-religious-than-spiritual ramblings.
However, once I made it past those, I found this book a very thought-provoking and spiritually rich read. She writes candidly about many ideas that are certain to be controversial among the traditionalists of society – but having lived and loved on the “new frontier Having read and loved ‘Coming Apart’ by Daphne Rose Kingma, I was very interested in reading this book.
The Future of Love
She writes candidly about many ideas that are certain to be controversial among the traditionalists of society – but having lived and loved on the “new frontier of relationships” myself a couple times, I found her discussion of stepping outside society’s expectations very refreshing. I think our society is still a long way from Kingma’s vision, but she has created a road map here for those looking to explore klngma limits of what love is, and what it can be.
Jun 24, Allison futuer it really liked it. I read this after a relationship ended. It stresses that the future of relationships isn’t always just man and wife.
Rather, love will come in different forms. For instance, a woman may not be married to anyone, but may have close relationships with various men that fulfill various needs. The author doesn’t speak of love always in terms of romance – it’s worth a read og you’re curious about relationships and humans and our emotions in general.
Sep 25, Michelle Terrell rated it it was amazing. I include these study guide videos and a strong recommendation for this book in all my online course work for men, women and couples seeking lasting love. MUST read for everyone committed to real love over social obligation hhe clinging to constructs. Jun 13, Savana Rose rated it it was amazing. This is a wonderful book for those of us struggling with alternative or unusual dapnne of love relationships.
Guture lovingly explains the shift happening in traditional “marriage” based relationships and how expanding our definitions of love can introduce us to more meaningful relationships that defy traditional definitions.
I loved this and love her writing. It’s both poetic and frank. Oct 18, Nathan rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a beautiful book about relationships and how they are changing with our rapidly advancing culture.
Challenging the traditional forms of marriage as the only socially accepted form of relationship, this book is a must read for anyone who is experiencing any relationship tension. May 16, Gabrijela added it. Jan 12, Hilary Jackson rated it liked it. I was not inspired to finish dapne. I agree with where she is coming from but she does not back up her theories well enough.
