UPDATE: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.I was given a copy of The Normal Bar -- based on the most extensive survey of romantic relationships ever! -- while working on Canadian Living's own sex survey, so I thought this was quite fitting. The book, written by wellness entrepreneur Chrisanna Northrup and American sociologists Pepper Schwartz, PhD and James Witte, PhD, explores the secrets of happy couples and what they reveal about a 'new normal' in relationships. So what is the The Normal Bar? It's a rare glimpse into the sexual and emotional lives of those around us. From sexual habits according to gender to emotional capacities according to age, this book is the perfect tool for couples experiencing a crisis in their partnership or for those looking to reignite a flickering flame. The book itself is broken into three parts: Getting together; Living together and Staying together. It is filled with quirky anecdotes that are broken down into bite-sized morsels, which are easy to read and fun to share with your partner. And the best part about this post? We have a free copy to give away. Simply leave a comment below this post answering the following question: What do you believe is the key to a happy relationship? ** Contest closes March 12, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. (EST).

This contest is now closed.The winner of this copy of The Normal Bar is Ashleigh Swerdfeger. She said, "I feel that it is most important to have communication and listen to one another. Talk to each other about life, how you are feeling, finances. You shouldn't hide anything. You should be comfortable with each other." Thanks for your comment, Ashleigh.
