Getting Together and Staying Together : Solving the Mystery of Marriage
The facts are nothing short of startling--no matter how many people seem to walk down the aisle, the divorce rate in America is at a record high. What's the secret to getting into a happy marriage and, even more important, staying in one? Now world-renowed psychiatrist Dr. William Glasser and his wife, Carleen Glasser, update their classic guide to successful marriages, Staying Together, for couples young and old. As they examine the questions of why some marriages work and others fail, the Glassers advise readers on how to create loving and happy relationships by applying Dr. Glasser's trademark "choice theory." The result is a wealth of new information about who would make a compatible partner and how to improve any relationship.

"This book reads like a novel, yet has the impact of a transformative relationship course. I especially admire the fact that it addresses one of the most neglected aspects of relationships: personal responsibility."--Pat Love, Ed.D., relationship consultant and coauthor of "Hot Monogamy"Most relationship books focus on getting together or how to find the perfect partner. In this exceptional book, the Glassers not only talk about how to get together but about the more important tasks of staying together and 'what do we do after we say I do' and actually have to 'live happily ever after.'"--Jon Carlson, Psy.D., Ed.D., ABPP, distinguished professor, Governors State University"This book...has the impact of a trasformative relationship course.
