About the Book

With a firm grounding in psychology, and an expert speaker and counselor, Dr. Robin, as she is widely known, will advise couples on how to best take the vows made in earnest and in innocence to a level where they can be used to build a happy, healthy, satisfying and long-lasting marriage. It will address couples who are planning marriage, are newly married, or who have been married for years. An example of her approach can be seen in the classic vow to unite in marriage "forsaking all others." One partner may read this as a promise not to be adulterous, but another may see it as a promise to be solely and completely devoted to the partner, allowing little room for other existing friendships or bonds with family members. Clear communication about the expectations and realities of each individual and of married life together is the key to a successful marriage. Dr. Robin will lead readers thru the process step by step. Her method is appropriate for those approaching their wedding day, or those celebrating an anniversary. Harville Hendrix's Getting the Love You Want is a classic in the field. Dr. Robin conveys the same positive message, with a woman's touch and a doctor's authority.
