OMG. Just stop now. The passive-aggressive subtext is an interesting study in unacknowledged sexism, but in terms of actual marital advice? not so much. They make such a big deal that "he" means "spouse", but - look here! - they use "one" where they actually mean "she". And who can trust any book that purports to study and describe problems in marriage without any discussion of domestic violence or abuse? hmm. maybe it's because those aren't common marital problems, from the perspective of MEN.

I enjoyed the premise of viewing relationships as a system. however the examples, especially in the antiquated situations were tiring and irrelevant.
