Like all married couples, you have an unwritten, often unspoken, contract with your spouse. It's not the piece of paper you signed on your wedding day; it's the one in your head that sets the terms of your relationship, for better or worse. Those terms are subject to change, such as when: ?One of you loses a job ?Your first child is born ?Your kids leave home ?One of you cheats In this book, Dr. Bonnie Jacobson shows you how to modify your contract as your life together changes. You'll learn how to negotiate the ups and downs that come with any long-term relationship--and keep your union happy, healthy, and strong! AUTHOR: Bonnie Jacobson, PhD, co-author of Choose to Be Happily Married and Save Your Marriage in Five Minutes a Day, has been happily married for twenty-five years. In addition to running her own private practice, Dr. Jacobson is a member of the American Psychological Association, American Group Psychotherapy, and Eastern Group Psychotherapy. SELLING POINTS: ? The first book to uniquely focus on unspoken agreements between married couples - and how to adapt them to life changes ? 50 percent of first marriages end in divorce. As well, 67 percent of second marriages and 74 percent of third marriages result in divorce ? A significant cause of divorce is changing expectations by both partners, to which they fail to adjust *
