Practical Solutions for Your Relationship Conflicts

Diagnosis: Married is designed as a preventive guide to help you deal with, and in many cases, head off marital strife. It addresses a wide array of relationship topics -- from dealing with in-laws, to grappling with money matters to igniting your love life.

The purpose of Diagnosis: Married is to propel you into a "marriage improvement movement." Change can only occur when you act upon new information. If you do what the "Just Do Its" tell you to do, your relationship will move in a positive direction, even if making that move feels awkward or painful at first.
