Item description for Take Back Your Marriage: Sticking Together in a World That Pulls Us Apart by William J. Doherty...

More than half of all marriages currently end in divorce, but most newlyweds are supremely confident about their own future happiness. They vow that they won't make the same mistakes their parents did, or their friends--that this time, love will last forever. From renowned family therapist and educator William J. Doherty, this indispensable book helps couples of any age break free of the pervasive attitudes and assumptions that can chip away at even the happiest marriage today. Readers learn how to stay alert to marital drift and how to restore a relationship worth saving, even when it seems too late. Dr. Doherty illuminates such common commitment eroders as treating marriage like a consumer purchase, confusing desires with needs, becoming overtime parents and part-time spouses, and giving in to unintentional sabotage from family, friends, or helping professionals. He shows instead how couples can take positive steps to nurture their marriage by creating relationship rituals that stand the test of time. The book includes self-tests that pinpoint hidden marital problems (and solutions), as well as examples that illustrate how these commonsense ideas can be applied to the complexities of real life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Take Back Your Marriage: Sticking Together in a World That Pulls Us Apart?

The BEST book on marriage  Sep 4, 2008
If you want to make your marriage work, or even if you're not sure if you do or not, you must read this book. I've recommended it to so many friends and the results have always been positive. Its premise goes even beyond strictly just helping your marriage to helping your life by helping you frame your thoughts and actions.
Helpful  Feb 16, 2008
This book gives specific ways to help couples/individuals rethink the stage of their life in their marriage. Eye opening to what can and often does happen to couples and how the issues can be avoided and/or resolved.
Superbly helpful  Mar 4, 2007
I think the most important part of this book was the fundamental hopefulness about what might feel like a hopeless situation.
Highly recommended!!  Jan 10, 2007
This book should be required reading for all married couples, and even for those engaged or considering marriage so the many pitfalls and misconceptions so prevalent today can be hopefully avoided.
Drop what you're doing and read it!  Jan 7, 2007
This book is a giant gulp of fresh air. It's easy to read and understand without being simplistic; it's neither gimmicky nor condescending; and the advice and insights within it are sensible and do-able. So much of it rang true that I found myself wondering whether the author has been secretly hanging out at my house. He suggests that we, as a community, try to support each other's marriages, and I plan to start by referring my friends to this book.
