In today’s world, is it still possible to find your one true love?

“There is no ‘forever’ in love.”  This is the jaded conclusion of many in today’s world where cohabitation, separation and divorce prevail. Should we raise the white flag on true and lasting love?

In One True Love, psychology professor Grace Shangkuan Koo , PhD, makes a case for true love by exploring how love possibly fails, and how it could succeed. Browsing through research, gleaning insights from counselors, showcasing real-life testimonies of young love, failed love, and lasting love, and reflecting on her own experiences of love from her marriage and that of her parents, she seeks to answer the question, “How do we find and hold on to the one true love that will last a lifetime?”

One True Love culminates with a workbook of sorts to guide readers at different life stages in relation to marriage: waiting, engaged, newly weds, couples with children, and empty nesters — even those facing failure in marriage.  

Whatever your life stage, let the lessons and insights of Dr. Koo and her contributing writers — Dr. Harold Sala, Dr. Philemon Choi Yuen-Wan, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan, Rev. Mike and Francie Lacanilao, John Gaisano III, Gayla Carreon and Marjorie Magno — guide you in your pursuit of your one true love.
