Overview

Marriage SOS: Oilpatch Edition is the first marriage-saving guidebook created specifically for the relationship challenges seen in "oilpatch marriages" and families. It is written by Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B., the world's leading authority on oilpatch relationships. This straightforward, user-friendly book quickly targets and tackles the most common problems seen in oilpatch marriages, including such issues as time apart and loneliness, emotional meltdowns, telephone and text fights, absence and intimacy, broken trust and infidelity, money problems (a budget framework is included), dealing with an unappreciative, unsupportive or critical spouse and much, much more. It also includes marriage-saving "checkpoints" for a husband's Days On/Away and Days Off/Home, so that couples can stay connected while apart and get along while together. Marriage SOS: Oilpatch Edition is ideal for oilpatch couples who are married, living together, dating or dealing with a blended family situation. It will also be relevant to any couple who needs to make an "extended time apart" marriage work, from executives to long-haul truck drivers.
