Today's divorce epidemic reflects the rise of many social forces that can pull even the happiest couple apart. In fact, many of us hold deeply ingrained attitudes and assumptions that work against long-term marital happiness.
From renowned family therapist Dr. William J. Doherty, this book helps couples pinpoint hidden marital problems and take positive steps to stay close and connected every day. Readers learn to break free of such common traps as confusing desires with needs, applying a trade-in-the-old-model consumer mentality to one's own spouse, or becoming overtime parents instead of full-time partners. They get suggestions for creating relationship rituals that stand the test of time; from mundane to celebratory, sexy to silly. For young couples who want to hold tight to happily-ever-after, or longtime marrieds on the brink of breakup, this book shows how to fight back to restore a marriage worth saving.

Review:

"While it is primarily for married couples and those considering marriage, this book is also beneficial for therapists and professional leaders....it is applicable to those who are considering any type of partnership/relationship....chapters are inviting, engaging, and readable....a book for couples and can be used as a companion for those in therapy. It will also serve as an excellent text for marriage enrichment programs. Pastors and church educators will find Doherty's approach to marriage and family affirming of the work of their community of faith and practical for ministry within the congregation."--"Family Ministry" "Doherty's book offers solutions."--"St. Croix Valley Press" and "White Bear Press"
