Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Licensed psychotherapist and journal contributor Tessina, who has been happily married for more than 20 years, developed this comprehensive guide to help couples deal with the most emotionally charged problems of many marriages. She breaks down the titular subjects of money, sex, and kids into specific struggles, delves into their root causes, and provides case studies of couples who have dealt successfully-and realistically-with the problems. She further offers a variety of solutions and provides scripts for instigating discussions. The book concludes with guidelines for building mutual, maturing love. Recommended for all public libraries.
