Reviews - What do customers think about Fighting for Your African American Marriage?
Avoids overly technical language and gets to the nitty gritty Jun 30, 2006
The concepts in Fighting for Your African American Marriage are based on psychological principals of male/female relationships, but sensitively adapted to the typical experiences of middle-class black couples. Keith Whitfield has obviously spent a lot of time with black couples, and seems to understand both the men and the women. The book expertly addresses issues of modern vs. traditional gender roles, staying on track during both petty and serious arguements, dealing with anger, and issues of committment, forgiveness, and sex, and avoiding divorce. Exercises at the end of chapters help us practice what we learn. This is a BlackSelfHelpBooks.com selection.
