Overview

Unhappy couples may be unhappy each in their own way - but they're all fighting about the same things: money, sex and kids. These three topics often cause conflict that can erode even the strongest marriages. In this prescriptive, practical guide, popular author and therapist Dr. Tina B. Tessina shows couples how to deal with their differences in these critical areas, and resolve them before they take their toll on their relationship. They learn the proper etiquette for marital debate, as well as creative approaches to solving the problems that confront them in their life together.

Given today's high divorce rate statistics and the so-called age of the 'serial marriage' - Money, Sex and Kids helps couples avoid the divorce court by addressing the divisive issues most likely to tear their unions apart.

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.
