Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Doherty presents a unique and impassioned analysis of how our consumer culture erodes our dream of having the lasting union that we want so much. His practical suggestions for rituals that restore love and commitment are immediately applicable and alone are worth the price of admission. My son said, 'This book changed my life!' I suspect you, the reader, will say the same."--Harriet Lerner, PhD, author of Marriage Rules: A Manual for the Married and the Coupled Up

"I love this book--it's a real eye-opener. Dr. Doherty shows how many of us ignore and take for granted what can be the most important aspects of our lives. Take Back Your Marriage teaches us how to prevent circumstances (or kids, work, community, in-laws) from hijacking our precious love lives without our consent."--John M. Gottman, PhD, author of What Makes Love Last? 

"With his usual pragmatic good sense and down-to-earth wisdom, Dr. Doherty reassures us that we can face the 'core challenge of our time'--how to make a loving, long-term marriage work. He lays out an intentional path to lasting love with elegance and persuasiveness. This is a message that we all need to hear."--Sue Johnson, EdD, author of Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love

"This book offers wise and timely advice on marriage from one of America's favorite therapists."--Mary Pipher, PhD, author of Reviving Ophelia and Another Country

Format: Paperback
We had to go through this book for our college study. We got married a couple of years ago and really loved this book. It's written in a way that it's easy to read. And it helps you fight for your marriage in the right manner. I especially liked that it said that a marriage counselor should not be neutral to whether or not to get a divorce, but instead try to help the marriage succeed when possible.

This book is based on the idea that our society often does not support marriage sufficiently, with harm to the couple, the children, and the society. Dr. Doherty presents his views in a very straightforward way, without "psych talk". I would recommend this book to successful couples, to couples considering or early in marriage (or relationship), and to couples in some distress.

Bought this on advise from my therapist. Being from MN the correlation between marriage and a river trip rang true. Lots of useful information and I would recommend it as a read to anyone - marriage trouble or not.

I highly recommend this book not only to those already married, but to anyone who hopes to get married. It does a great job of adjusting unrealistic expectations about marriage and giving practical suggestions for practicing marriage well. The author inspires hope that a large number of marriages don't need to end in divorce-- there are ways of addressing issues early on!
