This is a read-and-understand, lock-it-in-with practice book that will enrich your relationship with your loved one. For thirty years Foster and Hermie Cline have worked with other couples individually and in groups, in this country and abroad, helping them learn how to do the same thing: build lasting relationships. They've worked with couples by the fireside in their home, and on houseboats lashed together on America's lakes. They've worked with couples around the campfire, and in many retreat centers. The wisdom gained through all these years and experiences culminated in a book that is enjoyable and effective for couples wishing to make the most of their relationship. MARRIAGE - Love and Logic includes a bonus DVD packed with couple laugh-and-learn vignettes and links to a website questionnaire that will help you understand yourself, your loved one, and your relationship along nine different scales.

About the Author
In his 20 years as a speaker and consultant, Jim Fay has become one of America's most sought-after presenters in the fields of parenting, positive discipline, and classroom management. He is a best-selling author, and has become the pied piper for parents and educators searching for practical behavior management techniques. Jim has 31 years of experience in a variety of educational settings including public, private, and parochial schools. He has served as a consultant to parents, mental health organizations, and the U.S. military. Through his experiences as an art and music teacher, classroom teacher, principal, and administrator in both inner city and suburban schools, he saw the need to structure the classroom, the school, and the home in a way that would build positive relationships with children. "Parents and teachers often tell me 'it shouldn't be a popularity contest.' But when I started out as a parent and a teacher with lots of lecturing, threats, rewards, and punishments... it just didn't work," Jim says. "It's all about teaching children responsibility and self-discipline, while at the same time giving the message that the adults in their lives care about them." Jim slowly developed this new philosophy, learning as he went, experimenting with different techniques until he found a consistent and practical way to implement these strategies in his work with children. His philosophy has grown into what is now known as Love and Logic(r). "The Love and Logic philosophy primarily teaches character," says Jim. "And this character is built out of a formula that involves three things: the child makes a mistake, the adult responds with empathy and compassion instead of anger, and the child learns from the consequences of his or her actions." Jim is the parent of three children. His son Charles, a former school psychologist, joined the Love and Logic Institute as a speaker and consultant, and was recently named president of the organization. Jim has authored hundreds of books, articles, audios and videos, and is the man that coined the term "Helicopter Parents." Books, videos, and audios by Jim Fay include: . Parenting with Love and Logic . Teaching with Love and Logic . Helicopters, Drill Sergeants, and Consultants . The Four Steps to Responsibility . Raising the Odds for Responsible Behavior . Secrets of Step-Parenting . Shaping Self-Concept For more information about Jim Fay go to, or call 800-338-4065
