Turning her attention to couples and their relationships, Dr. Laura gives advice on avoiding secrets, egotism, pettiness, being controlling, making excuses, and more. Much of the book has been created from letters written by listeners of her show. These personal anecdotes are used to illustrate points and provide examples we can all relate to; given their tremendous variety, you’re sure to find some that click with you. They make the book an easily absorbed read.

In a nutshell, here are the 10 stupid things couples do:

  1. Stupid Secrets – Withholding important information for fear of rejection
  2. Stupid Egotism – Asking not what you can do for the relationship but only what the relationship can do for you
  3. Stupid Pettiness – Making a big deal out of the small stuff
  4. Stupid Power – Always trying to be in control
  5. Stupid Priorities – Consuming all your time and energies with work, hobbies, errands, and chores instead of focusing on your relationship
  6. Stupid Happiness – Seeking stimulation and assurance from all the wrong places to satisfy the immature need to feel good
  7. Stupid Excuses – Not being accountable for bad behavior
  8. Stupid Liaisons – Not letting go of negative attachments to friends and relatives who are damaging to your relationship
  9. Stupid Mismatch – Not knowing when to leave and cut your losses
  10.  Stupid Breakups – Disconnection for all the wrong reasons
