THE PLOT AT A GLANCE-
In an era booming with the ‘Start-up’ trend and loving this new attitude of breaking boundaries and conventions of a career, one also faces the challenge of being able to partner up with the right people. In lieu of reliable and trustworthy partners, real life couples in relationships have started exploring the idea of partnering up in business too!
Speaking to various couple-preneurs, one realizes that the myth about mixing work and home is just as misty as the one about needing a stable and conventional job for an ambitious career. These dynamic
start-ups break stereotypes and cover a varied range of services: ecommerce, innovative gifts, eco-friendly products, health care solutions, social responsibility ventures, event management, digital
solutions and many others.
Super Couples brings out such lovely stories of enterprising couples. After all, when great minds come together to produce something built on conjoined dreams, the result is eminently successful.
Do you know what it’s like to love someone so much, that you can’t see yourself without picturing her? Or what it’s like to touch someone, and feel like you’ve come home? What we had wasn’t about sex, or about being with someone just to show off what you’ve got, the way it was for other kids our age. We were, well, meant to be together. Some people spend their whole lives looking for that one person. I was lucky enough to have her all along. Relationship is a very versatile and a very strange thing. And especially in our generation by the time we realize we are in love, an evil power called break up dips into the relationship. Well, it seems to me that the best relationships – the ones that last – are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with. But if a relationship works it can give rise to something which is very blooming and thus we have SUPER COUPLES.
REVIEW OF THE BOOK:
Let’s begin with something romantic.” I will love you always. When this red hair is white, I will still love you. When the smooth softness of youth is replaced by the delicate softness of age, I will still want to touch your skin. When your face is full of the lines of every smile you have ever smiled, of every surprise I have seen flash through your eyes, when every tear you have ever cried has left its mark upon your face, I will treasure you all the more, because I was there to see it all. I will share your life with you, Meredith, and I will love you until the last breath leaves your body or mine”. This is what happens at the very beginning when we fall in love . but then things tends to get worsen as issues like possessiveness, ego and suspicion creeps in,or agreed to stick it out through sickness and health and for richer or poorer, but marital vows don’t address the other big things that can untie your knot—boredom, feeling out of touch, or worse, platonic friendship instead of an in-love partnership. While honeymoon headiness will inevitably decline, that doesn’t mean your relationship has to take a nosedive as well. In fact, some of marriage’s best highlights—raising a family and developing a deeper, more profound connection—require years of togetherness. Prachi garg very beautifully illustrates thus issue in nineteen different stories and proves the fact that both the partners have to be SUPER to make themselves a SUPER COUPLE.
I felt silly for even mentioning it, but once I did, I knew I had to explain.
“When I was a kid, “I had this puzzle with all fifty states on it–you know the kind where you have to fit them all together. And one day I got it in my head that California and Nevada were in love. I told my mom, and she had no idea what I was talking about. I ran and got those two pieces and showed it to her–California and Nevada, completely in love. So a lot of the time when we’re like this”–my ankles against the backs of your ankles, my knees fitting into the backs of your knees, my thighs on the backs of your legs, my stomach against your back, my chin folding into your neck–“I can’t help but think about California and Nevada, and how we’re a lot like them. If someone were drawing us from above as a map. That’s what we’d look like; that’s how we are.”
For a moment, you were quiet. And then you nestled in and whispered.
And I knew you understood.” But on the other hand when we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on–series polygamy–until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfilment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.
This book will teach you how a relationship should go about. It’s not like those ’10 tips for young couples’ or ’20 things a couple must do’ which we usually find on the internet. It’s like series of slides which will make you fall in love with the book, I promise.

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK-
• The lovely compilation of sweetness and romanticism.
• Beautiful presentation of the characters in each and every story.
• It will prove you “One’s not half of two; two are halves of one.”
Drawbacks (believe me, the negative points are negligible if you compare to the positive aspects)
• Few of the stories could have been more interesting and romantic, for instance Interesting Innovation iView Labs by Siddhartha & Meena
• The SUPER Factor associated with the plot.
• The moral and the teachings which was portrayed through the stories.
Overall I would like to rate the book 47 on a scale of 50.
5 stars out of 5

Once again I would like to say that What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?
