Overview

A thorough revision with a new DVD of couples in action, using the PREP method for strengthening marriage and avoiding divorce court

The third edition of the best-selling classic on marriage enhancement and divorce prevention, features the latest research and changes of heart in our culture and society. New and revised, Fighting for Your Marriage is based on the widely acclaimed PREP (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program) approach. Groundbreaking studies have found that couples can use the strategies of this approach to handle conflict more constructively, protect their happiness, and reduce the odds of breaking up.

  • The book is based on more than twenty years of university research
  • Explores how to apply the PREP approach to any marriage
  • Shows couples how to talk more and fight less, deepen and protect their friendship, and keep the fun alive
  • Reveals what it takes to have a more intimate, sensual relationship and how to clarify and act on priorities

The authors have included a wealth of techniques and down-to-earth guidance for all couples who seek to promote greater character and pleasure in their long-term relationships.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors provide an encyclopedia-like wealth of information, from escaping destructive patterns to controlling conflict to playing together." (Library Journal, May 15, 2010)
Library Journal
The authors of Fighting for Your Marriage have taken their classic by the same name and updated it with the latest research on technology's influence on relationships, the significance of divorce and single parenting, and the increasing prevalence of negotiation-based marriage. Markham (psychology, Univ. of Denver), Scott M. Stanley (A Lasting Promise), and director Susan L. Blumberg (Interpersonal Communication Options, Denver) are supporters of the Smart Marriages movement and base their teaching on the PREP method (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program), an empirically based marriage-education program noted by the National Institute of Health. The authors provide an encyclopedia-like wealth of information, from escaping destructive patterns to controlling conflict to playing together. No one can doubt the quality of the information contained here, but it is most helpful for couples working together, marriage counselors planning programs, or others in a group setting.
