Re-writing the Rules
An integrative guide to love, sex and relationships

By Meg Barker

Rewriting the Rules is a friendly guide through the complicated - and often contradictory - rules of love: the advice that is given about attraction and sex, monogamy and conflict, gender and commitment. It asks questions such as: which to choose from all the rules on offer? Do we stick to the old rules we learnt growing up, or do we try something new and risk being out on our own?

This book considers how the rules are being 'rewritten' in various ways, for example the 'new monogamy', alternative commitment ceremonies, different ways of understanding gender, and new ideas for managing conflict and break-up where economics and child-care make complete separation a problem. In this way Rewriting the Rules gives the power to the reader to find the approach which fits their situation.

Rewriting the Rules









By Nash Popovic

Oval Callout: Look inside!

'Threesome' is a contemporary love story and a window into the world of polyamory – the last remaining taboo in our society. Is it possible to be in a loving relationship with more than one person? Can three people love each other without jealousy? How might others, including parents, react? How is a child who has ‘two mums’ affected? What happens when tragedy strikes? The novel creates a mosaic of this unusual relationship through an episodic and fast-paced narrative.

The Synthesis

Three social forces seem to be gaining momentum at present: religious fundamentalism among the affluent (who believe that it can help them preserve their statusOval Callout: Look inside!), religious fundamentalism among the deprived (who believe that it can help them change theirs) and secular relativism (predominantly among those occupying the middle ground). What all of them have in common is self-centredness and self-interest, which is not conducive to developing a global society. This book offers an alternative outlook, based on a shared purpose that could have a unifying power. Our choice at the moment is to live either in a rational but meaningless world, or in a meaningful but irrational world. The Synthesis is an attempt to see the world as both, rational and meaningful. Common sense, science, spirituality and philosophy are combined in a unique way to achieve this aim.
