When you got married, you and your spouse made a contract. Oh, not the one you signed in church or at the registry office. It was a contract no one but the two of you knew about. One that sets the terms of your relationship. But that contract can and does change. It changes when: you or your spouse lose your job; your first child is born; the kids leave home; and, your spouse cheats on you. Big changes in your life mean big changes in your marriage as well. And in this guide to a happy, healthy marriage you'll learn how to renegotiate your marriage during the ups and downs of life so that it can survive. Most of all, you'll learn the secrets to renegotiating your marriage contract so both of you remain committed to a strong, healthy, and happy wedlock.
