Overview

The Art of Marriage Maintenance

Karasu (psychiatry, Cornell U.) and Karasu (psychiatry and behavioral sciences, Albert Einstein School of Medicine) examine the psychological and biological differences between men and women and how stresses at various points in life, such as pregnancy and child- rearing, illnesses, affairs, and even the resident obnoxious teenager can throw off a relationship. With plentiful examples and some pointed and sometimes surprising quotes, they cover how "the relationship," sex, power, and communication contribute or detract from a successful marriage, marriage in the baby years, the kid years, and the adolescence decades, midlife, and marriage as a cause of illness. They close by redefining marriage. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
