"There is no secret to a long marriage-it's hard work...It's certainly not for cowards." —Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee Ebony Magazine

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Vera S. Paster, a marriage counselor and therapist, and Anita Doreen Diggs, author of The African American Resource Guide, help African American couples cope with all of the pressures on their marriage and guide them in re-discovering the joy, intimacy and passion of their relationship.

Dr. Paster discusses the difficulties African American couples face, including white collar women marrying blue collar men; the problems of blending families; bringing aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents back into your life; the stereotype of black male as king; the heartbreak of depression, addiction, abuse, and adultery; and many other important issues.

In her warm, down-to-earth style, she reveals the steps that every couple must take to overcome these difficulties and put their marriage on solid footing. By showing black couples how to draw on the unique strengths of their forefathers, she gives husbands and wives the traditional tools they need to get through the tough times. In addition, she offers suggestions on what not to bring up in an argument, 50 ways to enhance your marriage, using community activism and church involvement to bring you closer together, and much more.

A unique book that answers all of your questions and concerns, Staying Married is a wise voice to help you successfully build a loving relationship that will last a lifetime.
