The Dos and Don’ts of Staying Happily Married gives couples the proper keys to achieving happiness throughout their married lives. Proper hadrachah is the first step to a successful marriage. Entering marriage without it is like trying your luck to repair a complicated electronic device. You could be lucky and connect the right wires to make it work, but making a slight mistake could ruin the entire device.
In this essential book, readers will benefit from the clear guidelines of Torah teachings, including Chazal and contemporary rabbanim, as well as from the author’s extensive counseling experience. Together, these provide life-changing tools for staying happily married — forever.
“Marriage opens the door to simchas ha’chaim and has the ability to improve every dimension of one’s life. However, one needs the proper keys to enter; if the keys are broken, he’ll break through the door, causing disastrous results and the ruination of his life.”
Rav Moshe Aharon Stern
