The authors provide the usual advice on successful marriage: practice open communication, balance career and marriage, and reconcile different spending habits. But they also offer advice for the kinds of pressures that black couples often deal with in a marriage: the impact of racism on financial prospects; helping spouses deal with the frustrations engendered by race relations in the U.S.; and raising children to appreciate their heritage and, at the same time, anticipate the racial hurdles they will face. Diggs and Paster offer case studies of couples coping with the typical challenges of marriage, overlaid with problems stemming from racism. Diggs, an author and freelance writer, interviewed several couples. Paster drew on her experiences as a psychologist and marriage counselor. The authors note the high rate of divorce in the U.S. and the fact that black families are more vulnerable to instability. They also provide historic context for the instability of many black families, the legacy of families tossed about by slavery. Vanessa Bush
