There isn't a marriage or a personal partnership relationship that doesn't hit rough water sometimes.  

Any one who has been in a long relationship knows that sometimes you can find it hard going. But relationships that have been good 
are usually worth fighting for.  Of course, at the end of the day, only you can decide whether you want to put the effort in and fight for something that has been valuable to you. 

The third edition of the what has become a classic on marriage enhancement and divorce prevention,"Fighting for Your Marriage", features the latest research and changes in culture in our society. 

New and revised, Fighting for Your Marriage, is based on the widely acclaimed PREP (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program) approach. Groundbreaking studies have found that couples can use the strategies of this approach to handle conflict more constructively, protect their happiness, and reduce the odds of breaking up.

This book; 

  • Is based on more than twenty years' of university research
  • Explores how to apply the PREP approach to any marriage
  • Shows couples how to talk more and fight less, deepen and protect their friendship, and keep the fun alive
  • Reveals what it takes to have a more intimate, sensual relationship and how to clarify and act on priorities
The authors have included a wealth of techniques and down-to-earth guidance for all couples who seek to promote greater character and pleasure in their long-term relationships.

"The authors provide an encyclopedia-like wealth of information, from escaping destructive patterns to controlling conflict to playing together." (Library Journal, May 15, 2010)

"Fighting for Your Marriage" is a great book. I not only saw how my husband reacts to situations, but also saw myself very clearly. I have begun to correct my attitude and how I approach issues and have noticed a better response from him. Great exercises. I recommend this book to anyone just starting out or those individuals who have been married a long time and are struggling. (An Amazon Review)
