Years ago, it was scoffed to get divorced. Now, it doesn't bother most folks and although I don't have the statistics, I know a lot of children nowadays have divorced parents. This book is full of examples of many couples in different walks of life, Drs. Ferretti and Weiss offers tools and how it's possible to have a successful marriage and still have a successful career.
Marriage isn't easy. I know my husband and I have struggled over the years. We've been married seventeen years and it's not always the job that causes the struggle in our relationship. I am, however, career driven, and he is not. I try not to bring my job home, but sometimes, it does crossover. There's a point where it's OK to talk about it, but too much, is well, too much. Do you have to work a lot? Put your job first? Again, at what cost?
How about the kids? We struggled when they were little, but now as teenagers, we struggle once again. But through-out all of the struggles, we realize that if we do it together, work through it together, then we will be successful. This book outlines the perils of being achievement oriented and power oriented with your intimate relationship and how to improve your relationship. Although I've learned a lot of it through trial and error over the years, this book would have surely come in handy years ago and still offers some insight that my husband and I are going to work on.
Not just for men to read, it will benefit women as well. They've obviously done their research. Easy to read and though-provoking, Change Your Life, Not Your Wife is an asset to any marriage or relationship.
