Library Journal

While nurturing a marriage isn't easy for any couple, it may be particularly difficult for those in commuter marriages, in which one member may be overseas, helping an infirm parent, or just working long hours. To help these couples, psychotherapist Tessina (Money, Sex, and Kids) has devised solutions to several challenges, including overcoming jealousy, resolving conflicts, raising healthy kids, and keeping the passion alive. Tessina presents her message through real-life stories and exercises, illustrating what works and what doesn't. Simple, helpful, and relevant; recommended for public libraries.
