When it comes to marriage, some things are just necessary. So say the authors
of The Necessary Nine: How to Stay Happily Married for Life! Dan Seaborn
and Peter Newhouse are proud to be regular guys turned professional marriage
and family experts who have determined that the following nine actions will
help couples stay married:
(1) Establish Cherishing Attitudes, (2) Pursue Financial Security,
(3) Discover Sexual Satisfaction, (4) Spend Time Together, (5) Develop
Genuine Friendship, (6) Value Physical Attraction, (7) Cultivate Emotional
Oneness, (8) Guard Home Harmony, and (9) Build Spiritual Fusion.
Indeed, these are the “must-do’s” for anyone who has said “I do.” And
although the list may look simple enough, Seaborn and Newhouse make sure
readers understand the “how to” part every step of the way. Based on their
popular marriage seminar of the same name, The Necessary Nine is written for
men and women and is appropriate for couples in any season of marriage.
