"The secret of a good marriage, for the most part, is that there are
no secrets, only commonsense, time-tested ideas procticed by countless others
who have done it well." - From the Introduction
Marriage expert Dr. Ray Guarendi has counseled enough couples to know that
building a better relationship with your spouse doesn't mean learning exotic new
communication techniques or rearranging your lifestyle. In fact, a few of
his ten "small steps" are lessons you learned in grade school, such as:
- Say "I'm Sorry"
- Listen a Minute
- Make a List
- Use Your Manners
Plus, with his "resistance rationales," Dr. Ray helps you overcome any
reluctance you might feel to taking these small steps. Filled with
straightforward advice, this book reminds you that a happier, more rewarding
marrriage is just a few small steps away.
