Olds and Schwartz offer chapters for couples of all ages and in all stages of marriage. Using anecdotes from real-life couples, as well as their experience as therapists, the authors delve into common marital problems such as jealousy, adulterous urges, one partner desiring more intimacy than the other, and both partners being too busy with work and child-rearing to be sexually intimate.
