There is nothing secret about the secret of happy marriage. Ever since we were teenagers, we've been told that successful marriages were built on compromise. But obviously, the message didn't get through: Approximately thirty percent of couples eventually dissolve their bonds. Clinical psychologist, marriage counselor and author Dr. Willard Harley (His Needs, Her Needs) believes that in marriage, vague good intentions need to be replaced by specific remedies. He first identifies the five most common arenas of marital conflict (friends and family; career and time management; finances; children; sex) and then explains how the concept of joint agreement can be applied to alleviate tensions. Calming, reasonable words about several very touchy subjects.
