"In his blog, Barton Goldsmith has done something unique. He has assembled a remarkable list of ideas and exercises for couples that will actually work. And he has done it without the befuddlement of theory, yet every post exhibits a theory of change. It’s simple. What would make marriage work for everyone is not rocket science. It is commonsense. Not a single suggestion or exercise is exotic or complicated or requires a college degree. All of them ring of commonsense. The only way a couple could fail is to not do the work." —Harville Hendrix, Ph.D.
