  • Successfully deal with parents, in-laws, and stepfamilies
  • Negotiate everything from household chores to intimacy
  • Develop positive patterns for handling money in marriage
  • Juggle commitment to career and each other
  • Cultivate a terrific married sex life
  • and much more.

This book "should be required reading before receiving a marital license," says Ira Glick, M.D., coauthor of Marital and Family Therapy.
