Barbara Bartlein has worked with hundreds of couples as they have worked to save their marriages, and she is now ready to share the secrets of what they have learned together. A happy, successful marriage almost always is the result of hard work and commitment, she says, but all too often, people don't know what to do to improve their marriages. This is where Why Did I Marry You Anyway?" fills the gap. With '12.5 strategies' that cover all the common problems in relationships-like money, children, sex, and in-laws-she tells couples what to do and shows them how to do it. Each chapter approaches these problems in the same way. First, a common complaint is explored. Second, common myths that block solutions to the problem are identified and helpful ways of countering them are suggested. Third, case studies illustrate the concepts in action. Finally, quizzes and tools provide opportunities to practice these new skills and behaviors."
