We don't feel close anymore
We only have time for the kids.
All you do is work.
You don't care about my dreams.

Do you recognise yourself, or your spouse, in any of these statements? If so, Dr. John Gttman and his wife, Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman, say you shouldn't be surprised. In fact, their decades of scientific research have shown that most couples face these and other serious problems - but what the Gottmans have proven is that such difficulties don't have to lead to a broken relationship, or even divorce.

In 1994, Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues at the University of Washington made a startling announcement: Through scientific observation and mathematical analysis, they could predict - with more than 90 percent accuracy - whether a marriage would succeed or fail. Gottman teamed up with his clinical psychologist wife to put these ideas into practice. In 10 Lessons to Transform Your Marriage, the Gottmans share this information so that couples can develop the skills to turn their relationship problems around and create strong, lasting unions.

The Gottmans provide the tools - scientifically based and empirically verified - that you can use to regain affection and romance lost through years of ineffective communication. You'll strengthen your relationship and make it the most fulfilling it can be.
