This book is a lively, informal presentation of how to make a marriage not just long lasting, but, dare we say it, fun. The authors come with credentials of sixty-years of happy marriage plus over forty years of family research (parents, teenagers, and marriage) in the US and abroad. Lois and Joel Davitz build this book around seven discoveries they have uncovered in their marriage career. They strip away all the fancy jargon and focus on what is really important and what can make a difference in a successful marriage. Elaborating on each discovery with personal anecdotes and playful dialogue, the book uncovers crucial relationship truths which layer and deepen with each discovery. The seven ways include: sharing doses of fun and pleasure, learning to value differences, being considerate and thoughtful, as well as learning to let go of grudge-holding. Readable and instructive, this book is non-denominational and would be appropriate for: pre-Cana classes and facilitators; marriage and family counselors; marriage mediators; happily married couples; and, unhappily married couples.
