Ten Lessons to Transform your Marriage
America's Love Lab Experts Share Their Strategies for Strengthening your RelationshipBook - 2006
In 1994, Dr. Gottman and his colleagues at the University of Washington announced that, through scientific observation and mathematical analysis, they could predict--with more than 90 percent accuracy--whether a marriage would succeed or fail. But they did not yet know how to turn a failing marriage into a successful one, so Gottman teamed up with his clinical psychologist wife to develop intervention methods. Here they share this information so that couples can develop the skills to create strong, lasting unions. What emerged from decades of research is a body of advice based on two simple truths: Happily married couples behave like good friends, and they handle their conflicts in gentle, positive ways. The authors offer an intimate look at ten couples who have learned to work through potentially destructive problems, and examine what they've done to get their marriages back on track.
