Movies like Sleeples in Seattle and ""An Affair to Remember bombard people with bad ideas--MythInformation--about love. We are told that if you meet the right person and fall in love, your marriage will thrive and you will be happy. However, while love is important, stable marriages are not based on love alone. Barbara bartlein has worked with hundreds of couples as they have worked to save their marriages, and she is now ready to share the secrets of what they have learned together. A happy, successful marriage almost always is the result of hard work and commitment, she says, but all too often people don't know what to do to improve their marriages. This is where ""Why Dia I Mary You Anyway? fills the grap. With 12.5 strategies that cover all the common problems in relationships, like money, children, sex, and in-laws, she tells couples that to do and shows them how to do it. Each chapter follows the same outline. First, a common complaint is explored. Second, common myths that block solutions to the problem--the MythInformation--are identified and helpful ways of countering them are suggested. Third, case studies illustrate the concepts in action. Finally, quizzes and tools provide opportunities to practice these new skills and behaviors. The result is a helpful, humorous, and easy-to-read book. Anyone who gives it just a little thought will come away with practical insights that will result in positive changes in their lives. ""
