This book was the first comprehensive manual to deal with all facets of marriage within a halakhic framework. It was informed by the author's experience as an orthodox rabbi and psychologist specializing in marriage issues. Included are chapters dealing with the dating experience, the place of love in life and marriage, the ethics and goals of marriage, marital harmony, conjugal relations in theory and practice, and what happens when the marriage encounters difficulties. This valuable work formulates basic guidelines and gives advice for the development of a sound marriage. It also contains comprehensive notes anchoring the text to authentic Jewish tradition, and incorporates observations from the world of psychology.
This highly acclaimed guide to marriage has now been republished for the first time, and includes an additional chapter on second marriages.
