The Art of Marriage Maintenance Summary

The Art of Marriage Maintenance by Sylvia R. Karasu

Given the fact that 50% of marriages end in divorce, you would think marriage wouldn't be so popular, but getting married is one of the most popular of all life events. In fact, many new couples are willing to face considerable debt for the wedding ceremony alone! It seems that many people spend more time on planning the wedding than on thinking about marriage and what it entails. The Art of Marriage Maintenance is about marital life after the wedding. It is about psychological and biological difficulties between men and women that make marriage so challenging. It is about why passion is in danger of fading within marriage, how hormones exacerbate behavior, and how the brain confounds us. It is about how pregnancy and having young children and adolescents often catapult a marriage to its breaking point and how the stresses of mid-life contribute to marital discord. It is, in effect, how to ensure a happy enduring marriage. It is the art of marriage maintenance.

The Art of Marriage Maintenance Reviews

A wise, sophisticated, and witty exploration of the paradoxes of intimacy. -- Peter D. Kramer, M.D., bestselling author of Listening to Prozac and Against Depression
In this lively and thoughtful exploration of the difficulties and satisfactions of marriage, the author brings together a wealth of scientific facts and valuable psychological insight. The text is enriched by the shrewd, funny, touching, and sometimes devastating observations of novelists, social commentators, and struggling husbands and wives. Those working through the muddles of married life will do it better with some help from Drs. Karasu. -- Judith Viorst, author of Grown-Up Marriage and Necessary Losses
With plentiful examples and some pointed and sometimes surprising quotes, the authors cover how 'the relationship', sex, power, and communication contribute or detract from a successful marriage, marriage in the baby years, the kid years, and the adolescence decades, midlife, and marriage as a cause of illness. They close by redefining marriage. * Book News, Inc. *
A perceptive, insightful, and upbeat guide to marriage and how to make it work, written with wisdom, grace and wit. Vivid anecdotes abound drawn from the author's extensive clinical practice, from classical literature and even from Sex in the City. Highly recommended for men and women at every stage of their natural journey. -- Judith S. Wallerstein, Ph.D., co-author of What About the Kids: Raising Children Before, During and After Divorce? and The Good Marriage
