    Help for the couple on their own again

    If you are a couple who has been together over 20 years, then you will find helpful suggestions on refreshing your marriage in this book. The section on how to learn about the danger signs of behaviors that can lead couples who have been married for decades to the divorce court is an eye opener. There is also good information on the major issues that midlife couples need to deal with in order to have a strong marriage. This great book isn't just for couples who have a truly empty nest. Many midlife couples today find that their nests get refilled with boomerang adult kids, aging parents, visits from kids and grandkids, or grandkids on a full time basis.
