According to the book description of Marriage and Military Life, it “is a relationship inventory designed for dating, engaged and married military couples. Numerous studies document how premarital and marital inventories help promote better marriages by helping couples identify particular strengths and weaknesses in their relationship, and by addressing differences in backgrounds, individual personality traits and expectations that may cause marital problems. Marriage and Military Life contains two detachable self-grading inventories that are identical to the statements found in the downloadable interactive computer program: The Survival Guide for Marriage in the Military. Unlike costly civilian relationship inventories that require professional administration and grading, this self-administered instrument addresses issues unique to military life (e.g., frequent long-term deployments, multiple moves, etc.). An excellent tool for young couples that wish to examine their preparedness to marry, it can! also benefit married couples that want to renew their love for one another. Couples who find themselves unable to resolve certain differences that surface in the course of discussing their responses are encouraged to order The Survival Guide for Marriage in the Military that provides confidential counseling insights on each of the statements found in the inventory.

According to the book description of The Survival Guide for Marriage in the Military: For Dating and Married Couples, “The revised edition of The Survival Guide for Marriage in the Military for dating, engaged and married military couples is an interactive work that helps couples assess their strengths and weaknesses in nine critical areas (Communication, Conflict Resolution, Finances, Sexuality, etc.). Once partners have each completed a detachable inventory, counseling insights found in the book aid couples in their discussion of certain potentially problematic statements identified in the self-grading process. The "counseling insights," based on years of counseling experience and input provided by hundreds of military couples, counselors and chaplains, are similar to the type of guidance offered to couples by counseling professionals. Reviews and couple feedback demonstrate why it is, without a doubt, the best book on the market today for dating, engaged and married personnel. Couples reunited after deployments, particularly to countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, have found it particularly beneficial in their relationships. An indispensable tool for both military couples and professionals, the book aims to reduce high divorce rates, promote deeper emotional and sexual intimacy, and enhance a couple's chances for a long-lasting and happy marriage despite the challenges of life in the armed services.”
