Psychologist John Gottman has spent twenty years studying what makes a marriage last. Now you can use his tested methods to evaluate, strengthen, and maintain your own long-term relationship. This breakthrough book guides you through a series of self-tests designed to help you determine what kind of marriage you have, where your strengths and weaknesses are, and what specific actions you can take to help your marriage. You'll also learn:

  • More sex doesn't necessarily improve a marriage
  • Frequent arguing will not lead to divorce
  • Financial problems do not always spell trouble in a relationship
  • Wives who make sour facial expressions when their husbands talk are likely to be separated within four years
  • There is a reason husbands withdraw from arguments- and there's a way around it

Dr. Gottman tells you how to recognize attitudes that doom a marriage - contempt, criticism, defensiveness, and stonewalling - and provides practical exercises, quizzes, tips, and techniques that will help you understand and make the most of your relationship. You can avoid patterns that lead to divorce, and Why Marriages Succeed or Fail will show you how.

    " A great book that makes a lot of sense. and Don't forget that he did research for 20 years with over 2,000 couples. buecause if you do you did not read the book because he talks about that on almost every page. Dispite that it is a great book!! "

    " I agree with Emily that the substance of most self help books can be divided into either bunk or common sense. However, this book breaks the mold. There's still a lot of common sense, but very little bunk, and a few very surprising results. Gottman has taken a very scientific approach and has based his book on studies he has conducted and followed for many years. I now have a much better understanding of the marriage dynamic. Some of my major assumptions were turned upside down. I would recommend this enlightening read to anyone. "
