Overview

A smart and witty guide to repairing the problems that creep into committed relationships, once the honeymoon glow has faded

Could the heating system in your relationship use a jump start? Looking for nontoxic ways to ward off pests (aka intrusive in-laws)? Wondering how to strengthen your foundation (and better your communication)?

It's common knowledge that the blush of new love tends to fade with the wear-and-tear of daily life-but this doesn't mean a marriage must be condemned. In this unique relationship guide, Sharyn Wolf-therapist, workshop leader, and oft-quoted relationship expert-helps readers identify and fix the problems that, over time, are guaranteed to plague long-term relationships, not unlike the busted boiler, termite damage, and leaky basement that can turn a couple's dream home into a work site.

Inspired by years of working with both newlyweds and long-committed couples, in This Old Spouse, Wolf offers readers the practical tools they need to become their own contractor and conduct a current appraisal of their relationship, assessing the damage and guiding them through a step-by-step process to help restore the original beauty that inspired them to commit in the first place. From breaking down walls (and rebuilding warmth and affection) to cleaning out clutter (and eliminating counterproductive behavior), the strategies in This Old Spouse will enlighten and entertain anyone whose relationship could use a little renovation.
