The authors of this work examine strategies of their PREP (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program) approach for helping couples prevent marital distress and divorce. They reveal, for example, research that highlights the major difference between men and women in relationships, the way they fight and how shared commitment is essential for fair fighting between partners. At the end of each chapter, the authors provide engaging exercises for practicing new tactics for dealing with mir irritations or tough and sensitive issues.
