Summary
The Klemp's work as mindfulness and leadership experts often fell to the wayside when they came home in the evening, only to end up fighting about fairness in their marriage. They believed in a model where each partner contributed equally and fairness ruled, but, in reality, they were finding that balance near impossible to achieve. They developed the idea of the 80/80 marriage, a new model for balancing career, family, and love, one that pushes couples beyond the limited idea of "fairness" toward a new model grounded on radical generosity and shared success. Their book provides practical, powerful solutions to transform your relationship and open up space for greater love and connection. -- adapted from jacket

Summary
Some marriages start out storybook. Perfect proposal, perfect engagement, perfect wedding, perfect honeymoon, and perfect newlywed years. Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola stumbled right out of the wedding gate. Their choices in the early years, they'll tell you, nearly bought their marriage a one-way ticket to Suckville. The New York Times bestselling authors explore all the adventures of early wedlock, from the moment one of you gets on one knee to the day when sex starts to feel like work instead of play. In this guidebook, Behrendt and Ruotola explore their own marriage and, with gleeful candor, tremendous warmth, sharp humor, and piercing insight, look at what we who have decided to "settle down" hope to get out of our most lasting relationship. We venture through volumes on the engagement, wedding planning, the Big Day, the wedding hangover, the (blissful?) first year, the hard work of marrying two lives, fights, and sex-pectations versus sex-pectreality. The perfect book for those who have just put a ring on it or are thinking of putting a ring on it, Behrendt and Ruotola's work is a brilliant guide for the first stretch of that wild ride we call marriage.

Summary
"From the stars of WeTV's Marriage Boot Camp, a definitive guide to creating and maintaining a healthy marriage. Marriage is hard work. After the fairy-tale "I Dos" come chores, bills, fights, and plain weariness. Many couples are unsure how to fix their problems and wonder if their relationships really have what it takes to go the distance. (Hint: They do!) Luckily, relationship experts Jim and Elizabeth Carroll have created a program proven to mend marriages, revive relationships, and make the happily-ever-afters come true. After twenty years of resuscitating thousands of marriages, the Carrolls bring their wisdom directly to readers through this do-it-yourself relationship bible. Filled with advice, exercises, quizzes, and games, Marriage Boot Camp will teach couples to fight the Top Ten Marriage Killers by: *Keeping the heat in the bedroom *Arguing effectively instead of fighting dirty *Managing money *Creating--or rebuilding--trust *And much more! Through each time-tested exercise, couples will discover what matters to them as individuals and as part of a pair, and learn why marriage is not 50/50 but 100/100 at all times. With the right skills, any couple can create the marriage they've always dreamed of"-- Provided by publisher.
