A guide to staying together that combines the latest scientific data, personal anecdotes, and advice, arguing that marriage is better for your health, your finances, and your happiness, by an award-winning Time journalist.
Surveying the latest science and folding it into her funny, engaging, and candid knack for storytelling, Belinda Luscombe has written a fresh and persuasive report on the state of our unions. This book examine the six major faultines that can fracture a marriage, also known as Luscombe's F-words: familiarity, fighting, family, finances, fooling around, and finding help. She presents facts, debunks myths, provides an entertaining mix of data, anecdotes, and wisdom from a wide range of approaches to married life, as well as experts and therapists of the wedding, marriage and divorce industries. Marriage-ology gives the reader something to think about and maybe try, whether the marriage in question is on the brink of collapse or just needs a bit of maintenance on the foundations.
