What Top Marriage Experts Are Saying:

  • avatar John Gottman, Ph.D. A Top Influencer in Marriage and Divorce Research and author of What Makes Love Last?

    "I love this book--it's a real eye-opener. Dr. Doherty shows how many of us ignore and take for granted what can be the most important aspects of our lives. Take Back Your Marriage teaches us how to prevent circumstances (or kids, work, community, in-laws) from hijacking our precious love lives without our consent."

  • avatar Sue Johnson, Ed.D. Co-founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy and author of Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love

    "With his usual pragmatic good sense and down-to-earth wisdom, Dr. Doherty reassures us that we can face the 'core challenge of our time'--how to make a loving, long-term marriage work. He lays out an intentional path to lasting love with elegance and persuasiveness. This is a message that we all need to hear."

  • Harriet Lerner, Ph.D. Harriet Lerner, Ph.D., is one of our nation's most loved and respected relationship experts and author of Marriage Rules: A Manual for the Married and the Coupled Up.

    "Dr. Doherty presents a unique and impassioned analysis of how our consumer culture erodes our dream of having the lasting union that we want so much. His practical suggestions for rituals that restore love and commitment are immediately applicable and alone are worth the price of admission. My son said, 'This book changed my life!' I suspect you, the reader, will say the same."
