The author draws on his own experience of marriage and numerous case histories to explore a question: what forces in men and women keep them from creating marriages that are equal? From the choice of a partner through such common crises of marriage as pre-nuptial nerves and the birth of children, the text illustrates the many ways in which hidden childhood conflicts can intrude into everyday lives. The author attempts to give meaning to the factors that inhibit relationships, and to show how changes within a marriage can bring about satisfactory results.
