From Dr. Jane's Notebook

To Have A Happy Marriage

I've been talking with couples on a professional basis for more than 16 years now. Many times, marriages are not as fulfilled as they could be. But many people have a resistance to change. They may not want to alter their routine or change their personality to achieve a better marital relationship. But for those who do, these are some of the things that work.

Marriage is rarely discussed between mates unless things are going badly. To prevent marital problems, talk with each other about the desired "rules and understandings" in your relationship. You are both the architects of your relationship. Plan ahead!
