For everyone else, this book will give you permission to think out of the box."- Pepper Schwartz , author of The Normal Bar " The New I Do is a definite 'gotta get' book, providing you the tools to make your decision to marry a solid and successful one."- Dr. Charles Sophy , author of Side by Side 'Impressively analyzed and explained... The solid, erudite style pleasantly eschews the usual hype found in other works on the subject. Highly recommended for libraries supporting the helping professions and essential for all marriage therapists.'- Library Journal "
