Basing her research upon statistical and mathematical models, the author has identified five discrete marital types valid across a number of sociological and demographic dimensions: Traditionals, Independents, Separates, Separate-Traditionals, and Traditional-Independents. These classifications form a scheme for exploring ways in which couples vary in their values about marriage, in their communication with one another and in the level of marital happiness they achieve. The author also addresses the issues of power and conflict in marriage and non verbal communication. The volume is thus a fascinating look at all aspects of marital communication and as such will be invaluable for both professional and students in the areas
