“Many people contend that marriage is a relationship that carries the principle of friendship to its ultimate and most intimate degree. I think they are mistaken." One of the most influential psychotherapists of our time revisits his “two dozen myths” two decades later. Surprises aplenty in this no-holds barred conversation with readers about the “myths” that get married couples in trouble. The notions that “Husbands and wives should be best friends,” “Marriage should be a 50-50 partnership,” and “An unhappy marriage is better than a broken home,” are explored, debunked, and re-examined in the light of 21st century hindsight. This is a provocative, insightful, sometimes disturbing look at some of our most cherished beliefs about marriage.
