The Happy Couple HandbookAre you having less sex, less, fun and more arguments than you did before kids? Most couples do! The arrival of a newborn puts tremendous strain on even the best marriages. This handy book will make you laugh, make you cry, but most importantly inspire you to face and solve these relationship issues. Although early parenting is the biggest marital challenge a majority of marriages face, Dr. Carol believes you can have a stronger, happier marriage by resolving these issues. And that is the best gift you can ever give your selves and your children.

The Happy Couple Handbook “resonates so well with the experiences of many couples having to adjust to the challenges of parenthood and marriage…Dr. Lindquist describes with a great deal of humor the frequent challenges that arise…practical and easy to read, even when you have had an exhausting day with the kids...” Ira B. Poll, Therapist
