Marriage expert Dr. Ray Guarendi has learned, through counseling many couples, that the secrets to building a better relationship with your spouse don’t need to include exotic new communication techniques or rearranging your lifestyle. In fact, several are so simple that you likely learned them in grace school.

Each chapter in this book presents a baby step you can take, encouragement to overcome resistance to taking that step, and a fictional couple in dialogue with an anonymous therapist (guest who!).
