Product Details
What happened since the honeymoon?

  • Are you mad at your partner all the time?
  • Do you feel like your partner is selfish?
  • Do innocent conversations suddenly escalate into arguments?
  • Does your partner misinterpret what you say?
  • Do you feel emotionally distant from your partner?

    If you answered YES to any of the above questions, this book was
    written for you!

    For more than 40 years, Dr. Rugel has observed how quickly spouses
    feel disregarded in marriage and respond in a manner that upsets the partner.
    Their tranquil interactions then spiral into an unpleasant argument or
    into emotional distancing. Based on concepts from family systems theory,
    Dr. Rugel guides the reader through the process of recognizing and avoiding
    these destructive patterns, thus helping to bring the relationship back
    to harmony. In this book you will:

  • Learn why spouses get stuck in repetitive, useless arguments.
  • Explore why your partner might perceive you as the enemy.
  • Discover the behaviors that commonly threaten our partners.
  • Determine what you need to work on to improve your marriage.
  • Conquer your own defensive/self-protective tendencies.
  • Recover the friend and lover your partner used to be.

    Therapists' Praise for Taming Marital Arguments

    "Dr. Rugel offers a thoughtful and practical approach to acknowledging,
    assessing, interrupting, and redirecting destructive patterns of marital
    communication while honoring the dignity of the individual by
    respecting past life experiences which influence each partner's underlying
    beliefs, assumptions, and thought processes."
