When it was first published back in 1999, this book made a huge impact that shot authors and marriage counselors, John Gottmann and Nan Silver to fame, becoming their most popular book. Using interviews, research, and scienfic data analysis, the authors begin with a startling claim: They can predict an impending divorce with a 91% accuracy just by looking at various signs. Moreover, they criticize most marital therapies as ineffective. They can recognize the four horsemen of the relationship apocalypse. They can also tell the health of a marriage by asking a few questions and observing the responses. Fortunately, they are able to come up with seven principles not just to make marriage work, but to sustain it over the long haul. In brief, the principles are:

Read this book just when I was about to give up on my marriage. It turns out that there have been so many things I took for granted and this book helped me realize exactly what my husband and I have been doing right, what we’ve been doing wrong and what else we can do to strengthen the bond. This saved me from so much marital grief and frustration.

GREAT book to read together!

This book is GREAT – with lots of exercises to do with your spouse, and ways to identify the individual issues that you may be facing in your marriage so you can focus where you need to. Also has simple ways to just be kinder to each other – highly recommend reading this together as a marriage strengthening activity! It’s more of a coach – with steps to take to improve things – than some therapists, who just sit there and nod. John Gottman is the best.

This is easily one of the most useful, insightful marriage books I’ve read. My wife and I did the work together. It was not only an eye-opener – but a problem solver.

I’ve been quite lost of late. I think I have some tools and pieces to maybe find my way now, not just in my marriage, but also in myself. Lots if probing questions, scenarios and explanations. No magic potion to solve it all, but call for one to dig in and do some work…okay a lot of work.

The Scientific Approach to Making Marriage Work

By Captain Koopa Mcthunder
My husband and I are working our way through this book. We enjoy the scientific approach that the book describes about how to analyze and solve problems in our relationship. I highly recommend this book. We just made it to the first principle and already it has opened us up to be comfortable working together.
