Publishers Description Some people have suggested that a successful marriage requires tremendous insight to understand and super-human efford to achieve. Others contend that happy marriages are the purview of a lucky few. In this ground-breaking book, How to Love Your Wife, Dr. John Buri makes it clear he doesn't agree: thriving marriages can actually be achieved through sensible efford by reasonable people. But because the majority of marriages in this country consist of unions in which wives are more heavily invested in marital success than are their husbands, much of this sensible effort by reasonable people needs to be consistently initiated and maintained by men. In fact, men often hold the keys to bringing about the type of loving marriage they had hoped for when they first said I do. In How to Love Your Wife, Dr. Buri makes these keys clear, understandable, and accessible.

Thank you, Dr. Buri, for helping save marriages Aug 31, 2007
If you want a happy, healthy body, doctors can give you a prescription that's based on research. Perhaps you will be given antibiotics for a certain illness; perhaps you will be told to eat a balanced diet and exercise daily.
But what if you want a happy, healthy marriage? Where do you go to find out what's been proven to be successful? In this powerful book, How to Love Your Wife, psychologist Dr. John Buri gives the average Joe access to the most impacting research about what creates a thriving marriage.
As a tenured psychologist, Dr. Buri has gathered the most relevant research about marriage from the past thirty-five years. He translates that research into a fast-paced read by using examples from his own marriage and those of the many men that he has known. Though written specifically for men, anyone wanting to create a successful relationship will benefit from this book. No more are we stuck in stale marriages! How to Love Your Wife offers real help for creating positive change.
So, what is the prescription for a healthy marriage? According to Dr. Buri, research shows that it's anything but rocket science. Rather, it requires "sensible effort by reasonable people." How to Love Your Wife is a straight-talking guide that explicitly lays out those actions that will make the difference between traveling through "for better and for worse," and traveling to divorce court. In this how-to manual you can expect to read about concrete ways to show love, the difference between complaints and criticisms, sex, the up-side of conflict, how to use different levels of communication, and other actions that research shows will build a happy marriage.
Yet be warned, says Dr. Buri. This book is not for the faint of heart. Courage is required to carry out the simple steps found here. So the challenge is out there. Do you have the courage and perseverance to do what research shows is required for an outstanding marriage? If you're up for the challenge, Dr. Buri notes that the payoff is huge.
Let the marriage doctor give you a prescription for a healthy relationship.

This book was a huge inspiration to me. I have been in and out of several relationships and every time they seemed to fail for the same reasons. I also saw the same trends in my friends' and family friends' relationships. I was beginning to get discouraged, thinking that these trends were unavoidable and that I would have to resign myself to these feelings and an inevitably unhealthy relationship. I heard about this book from a friend and found that, when I read it, it answered so many questions and showed me solutions to many of my typical and seemingly universal problems. It helped me redefine who I consider to be "special" and it showed me how to overcome my own shortcomings in order to make a relationship work. This book has given me so much hope and is one of the most significant reasons I am in such a healthy and happy relationship now. Dr. Buri's book should be in the hands of every man thinking about marriage, and especially in the hands of those who are engaged or married themselves. Don't let the romantic title and cover fool you; this book contains powerful advice that can transform and ultimately save a relationship if you are willing to put in the time and effort.
