Beschreibung:

World Class Marriage is an engaging, practical and personal guide for relationship success written by two experienced marriage and relationship educators who share a loving and successful 30-year marriage with each other. The authors combine the latest and best information and guidance about how couples can avoid relationship damage and create lasting love, with unique insights and personal examples from their own successful marriage and extraordinary career teaching relationship skills around the world. This warm and practical guide will help readers keep or retrieve the love, closeness, and intimacy everyone wants from marriage.
Millions of American marriages have failed or will fail, resulting in what the authors see as a social epidemic that brings devastating consequences to the couple, their children, and to the economic and social fabric of society. Building upon their notion of the 16 'pillars' that promote a healthy and rewarding marriage, the authors present a structure for relationship success that is built upon groundbreaking information about what does and does not work in relationships and the conditions that promote growth and intimacy. This approach offers couples a powerful toolbox for eliminating behaviors that damage their relationship and pumping up the behaviors that promote love, caring, closeness and cooperation. World Class Marriage is a book all couples who want to see their marriages last should read and share.
