Why We Stay Together
20 Writers on Marriage and Its RewardsBook - 2002
There's no single reason why one couple's marriage outlasts challenges and tribulations that bring an end to another couple's. But many husbands and wives who stay together stay attentive to basic questions: "Why are we still together?" "How do we manage when the difficulties seem insurmountable?" "What do we need to do to keep our marriage fulfilling?" Now this groundbreaking collection offers insights and inspiration to all married couples grappling with these issues. Why We Stay Together includes a thoughtful mix of memoir, anecdotal essays, and fiction by writers including Louis Auchincloss, Winston and Clementine Churchill, Iris Krasnow, Gretel Ehrlich, Pablo Neruda, Jon Kabat Zinn, David Schnarch, Elizabeth Tallent, Thomas Moore, John Bayley, Grace Paley, and Thich Nhat Hanh. Each writer explores the complex and continually evolving nature of marriage--its challenges and costs, its joys and rewards.
