ABOUT THE BOOK

The bond between a husband and wife is one of the most intimate emotional and physical bonds of any human relationship. Your spouse is the person you share your hopes and dreams with, your partner, friend, co-parent, traveling companion, and confidante all in one.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

When under such extreme and sustained stress, emotional and physical symptoms follow. Stress causes the body to go into a physiological fight-or-flight reaction, and if stress is profound or prolonged, the body remains in a constant state of alarm, which can lead to vulnerability to disease and even death.

Ulcers, asthma, migraines, and hypertension are common effects associated with stress. Development of more serious issues such as coronary heart disease and cancer is also facilitated by stress.
