'This book brings together a group of specialists who attempt to describe the process of interaction between the inner and personal and the outer and social. They illustrate what is happening to current marriage, particularly in its daily intimate experience. They do not attmpt to offer expert solutions. They describe practice as they see it.'This book is a valuable study to help the clarification of the complex world of contemporary marriage, particularly as it stresses the dynamic aspects of the marital relationship which are the key to its present aspirations. It is a study which informs both the expert and the lay reader, helping to make sense of the necessary diverse realities which make up marriage today.'- from the Foreword by Jack Dominian.
