A major revision of the classic divorce prevention book, with up-to-date research, inclusive content, and companion videos available online

Fighting for Your Marriage is based on the widely acclaimed PREP approach (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program). Research has found that couples who use these strategies can handle conflict more constructively, protect their happiness, and reduce the odds of breaking up. Based on more than 40 years of evidence, this book shows couples how to talk more and fight less, protect their friendship, and keep the fun alive. You'll learn what it takes to have a more intimate, sensual relationship and how to clarify and act on priorities.

The 4th Edition has been substantially updated with advice for couples from a wide range of backgrounds and types who are interested in lasting love. The authors have included a wealth of techniques and down-to-earth guidance for all couples who seek to promote greater connection and pleasure in their long-term relationships. After reading the 4th edition, you will be able to:

* Apply up-to-date, research-backed strategies, using the renowned PREP approach to deepen your relationships

* Rekindle your marriage and bridge the emotional distance that has grown between you and your spouse

* Repair your or your partner's lack of desire for sensual and sexual connections

* Get research-based advice for enhancing and strengthening relationships for people who are interested in lasting love

For decades, this book has helped couples in serious relationships, newly married couples, and long-term married couples. It is also a valuable resource for couples and family therapists, college professors, clergy, and other professionals working with diverse individuals and couples who want to have happy, healthy relationships.

Praise for Fighting for Your Marriage, 4th Edition

"What distinguishes this 4th edition classic on marriage from other resources on marriage is the disclosure by the authors of the subtle but overlooked secret that 'how' couples deal with their differences is far more important than the issues themselves. Add emotional safety, intentional and timely engagement with the issues and taking responsibility for one's role in conflict, and you have the perfect recipe for a thriving marriage. We recommend this book to ALL couples for research-based guidance they can trust, to all therapists who want to really help couples and to everyone who would like to know how successful intimate relationships work."

--Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD, co-authors of the best seller Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples and co-creators of Imago Relationship therapy now practiced in over 60 countries

"In my decades-long work with couples, I often hear, 'I wish marriages came with instructions.' The good news? They do! In this updated edition of Fighting for Your Marriage, you'll learn how to tackle the fundamental issues faced by all couples who are committed to keeping their relationships vibrant, as well as acquiring the necessary tools to deal with the unique challenges in our ever-changing culture. Best of all, this classic marriage-strengthening book is chock full of pragmatic and easy-to-understand advice for creating joyful, satisfying, and long-lasting relationships."

"I work mostly with couples on the brink of divorce or, if not yet married, about to dissolve their relationship. Many have seen several couple therapists and found it unhelpful. Their #1 complaint? 'The therapist didn't teach us any skills or tools for getting along better.' Based on decades of research, Markman, Stanley, Rhoades, and Levine spell out succinctly and compellingly the attitudes and skills couples need to have a happy, successful relationship. As with previous editions and now thoroughly updated, it will be the core text I share with couples and teach to my graduate trainees in couple therapy."

"This guide to modern couple relationships for the 2020s and beyond is written by the A-team of couple relationship education. Based on 40+ years of research and practice with couples, they offer practical advice and tips for having a great relationship. Fighting for Your Marriage is easy to read with lots of suggested activities to build a great relationship."

--Kim Halford, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

"It's rare that a scientifically verified program is actually so successful. This book is a must read for anyone interested in helping or understanding relationships."

--John Gottman, author of Fight Right
