The Five Minute Wedding nicely sums up chapter 5 of The Power Of Addicted Love by showing how little Teresa was willing to accept for herself in order to be the one making things right for Greg. This book reveals the depth of the addiction to codependency and gives us all hope for recovery.

The Power Of Addicted Love, Chapter 5, The Five Minute Wedding

Key Features In The Power Of Addicted Love, Chapter 5, The Five Minute Wedding:

Teresa's compassion for Greg is made clear in this chapter.  Although his antics have left her pregnant, with no furniture and no transportation, she still spends a great deal of time describing the emotional upheaval Greg experienced through the death of his best friend.  This chapter does a good job of explaining why codependency is often referred to as an addiction to love.  She cares so deeply about her husband she will endure great pain and hardship to herself and still be more concerned over his feelings than her own.  Some codependents, not Teresa, will sabotage the recovery of the person they love so they can continue to be able to show that "love" by fulfilling the person's needs.
