Supermarriage: Overcoming the Predictable Crises of Married Life

Harvey L. Ruben, Author Bantam Books $14.95 (261p) ISBN 978-0-553-05121-6
The seemingly insurmountable problems that arise in marriage need not lead to divorce, assures Ruben, a psychiatrist and NBC ""Talknet'' radio host. Identifying the various stressful passages of marriage, he prescribes practical preventive measures to withstand the tensions caused by sexual adjustment, pressures from family and friends, financial and career matters, parenting, illness and everyday crises and changes. Equality, shared expectations, communication, intimacy and trust, he asserts, are basic to successful marriage. As many of the cases cited here indicate, positive solution of a series of difficult passages consolidates a marriage and builds a foundation for weathering future crises. Author tour. (June 1)
