Paperback
Do You Dream of Having a Great Marriage- the Kind That's Filled with Love, Friendship, and Passion and Lasts Forever? For the past twenty-five years, the internationally renowned marital researchers from the Center for Marital and Family Studies at the University of Denver have been helping couples around the globe replace loneliness with connection, frustration with understanding, fear with confidence, instability with commitment, revenge with forgiveness, and monotony with passion. Their program is called PREP, short for the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program, and it's been so successful that its creators have been featured on Oprah, The Today Show, and 20/20, and its benefits have been documented in The New York Times, USA Today, Woman's Day, and Redbook. Until now the only way you could experience this winning twelve-hour program was to attend a weekend workshop. But now, with 12 Hours to a Great Marriage, you can discover the simple, effective strategies that have helped thousands of couples-happily married, having issues, or planning to marry-to develop and protect their love, easily and at your own pace. Each chapter covers one of the key ingredients of the program, like Being Friends, Having Fun, and Enhancing Your Love Life, and shows you how to take the steps that research shows are the basis for a long-term, healthy, loving marriage. By practicing the simple skills, taking the thought-provoking self-tests, doing the fun and innovative exercises, and reading real-life couples' inspiring and informative stories, you'll find that in twelve short hours you'll be well on your way to having that great marriage you've always dreamed of. 'This book makes lasting love achievable.' -John Gray, author, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus 'I love this book! It's like hiring your own top-notch relationship coach for twelve hours and getting a lifetime's worth of lessons for creating a loving, lasting marriage.' -Michele Weiner-Davis, author, The Sex-Starved Marriage and Divorce Busting 'It actually makes working on your marriage fun. In fact, it introduces an approach that believes having fun is one of the hallmarks of a successful marriage.' -Diane Sollee, smartmarriages.com, and founder and director of the Coalition for Marriage, Family and Couples Education

- Publisher This is the first book to offer the actual 12 hour PREP program, hour by hour, exactly as it's been taught in workshops and trainings across America for the past twenty five years.
