9780385187855: A Book for Couples

"There are no well-matched couples," write Hugh and Gayle Prather. "The relationship you want is not the one you began with but the one you will end up with - if you are willing to follow these guidelines and to work in a simple and straightforward way." Then they explain, with great good humor, the principles they have developed and used in their 22 year marriage and have taught to hundreds of couples across the country. Learning to argue, making joint decisions, sex, money, jealousy, having children, growing old together, affairs, and numerous other areas of concern are covered within one whole and gentle approach that can be used by any two who wish to begin building a great love and unshakable friendship.

From Library Journal:

Similar to the preceding in its stress on fidelity, this book by the popular New Age writer and his wife differs in that it covers a spectrum of issues, not simply sexuality. Gently and whimsically, the Prathers apply Eastern notions of detachment to the context of long-term commitments (within or without marriage), encouraging partners to let go of ego-based assumptions that make for possessiveness, anger, and autonomy. Highly provocative beneath its disarming surface, this offers a genuinely new perspective on the subject. EC
