The Case for Marriage : Why Married People Are Happier, Healthier, and Better Off Financially

By Linda Waite, Maggie Gallagher

Review

"Married people have better physical health, better emotional health, longer life, more and better sex, better outcomes for their kids, better career outcomes, better accumulation of wealth and assets, even lower chances of domestic violence," Waite said in a phone interview recently.

This well rehearsed academically based book provides a tour-de-force of the way in which American culture has systematically undermined marriage in the past 40 years - much the same can be said of British culture. This positive book deals with what the authors describe as the "five myhts" about relationships that have undermined marriage, and looks at practical ways you can dispel these myths in your own relationship.

The implicit message from much of society is that unhappy couples have two options: (a) divorce, damaging their kids, or (b) stay in a miserable marriage. This book outlines a third option: (c) learn how to make a bad marriage happier - and not just for the sake of the kids.
