Poignant and useful, with good advice and beautiful story telling. I would recommend it to anyone, whether they're in a relationship or not.

Good information nicely delivered.

I really liked this series. For me, in the context of a contented 30+ yr marriage, I learned a thing or two! And HA!, several things we already practice turn out to be good planning on our part. I'd recommend this to anyone in or thinking about a marriage. Or anyone who knows somebody who is married. The format and performance are listenable and the content is sometimes witty, sometimes heartbreaking, and always relevant.
