Dr. Laura Schlessinger reveals how to bring a marriage back from the brink of disaster.

Jumping off her million-copy bestseller The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura Schlessinger exposes the sensitive and loving truths necessary to produce and sustain a wonderfully satisfying marriage. First and foremost, men and women need to understand and appreciate the uniqueness of masculinity and femininity. Both husband and wife have power in their relationship, and both need to realize this to ensure for themselves the personal satisfaction they yearn for. Dr. Laura explores the best ways a couple can relate, caretake, and nurture each other, and how to rescue a troubled marriage that seems doomed to fail.

Using real-life examples from her call-in radio show, Dr. Laura focuses on the typical mistakes made by men and women in their relationships, and gives us real-life solutions for keeping our unions strong, loving, and lasting.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2006-12-01)

New York Times best-selling author Schlessinger-"Dr. Laura", as she's known on her radio show-is back with a follow-up to her The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. Based largely on stories and surveys completed by listeners of past radio broadcasts, her latest book explores her ideas regarding what makes a healthy marriage. Schlessinger begins by explaining what masculinity and femininity are all about and assuring readers that "marriage is the best state for men and women". Using an easy-to-read, conversational format, she explores the expectations that women and men both bring to a marriage, as well as the benefits both sides experience, and she discusses key dos and don'ts for a healthy marriage.

Above all, she asserts, successful marriages entail sacrifice and require both participants to put the needs of the other individual first in their lives. This title will no doubt be popular with followers of Schlessinger's broadcasts and is thus selectively recommended for public libraries.
