Drs. Charles and Elizabeth Schmitz's award-winning book reveals how to sustain a long-term loving marriage. In addition to exploring the seven key ingredients that define a successful marriage--togetherness, truthfulness, respect and kindness, staying fit, joint finances, tactile communication, and surprise and unpredictability--the authors have included hundreds of insightful and practical interviews with happy couples.

  • Focuses on what's right about a successful relationship, rather than what's wrong
  • Written by a popular and very active couple known as "the marriage doctors," who lead lectures, training, workshops, and other events every week all over the country

This book offers a positive, upbeat approach to living happily ever after.
