For the past twenty-five years, the internationally renowned marital researchers from the Center for Marital and Family Studies at the University of Denver have been helping couples around the globe replace loneliness with connection, frustration with understanding, fear with confidence, instability with commitment, revenge with forgiveness, and monotony with passion. Their program is called PREPreg;, short for the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program, and it's been so successful that its creators have been featured on Oprah, The Today Show, and 20/20, and its benefits have been documented in The New York Times, USA Today, Woman's Day, and Redbook.

Each chapter covers one of the key ingredients of the program, like Being Friends, Having Fun, and Enhancing Your Love Life, and shows you how to take the steps that research shows are the basis for a long-term, healthy, loving marriage.
