  How To Keep Love Going Strong

7 principles on the road to happily ever after.

“Why is marriage so tough at times? Why do some lifelong relationships click, while others just tick away like a time bomb? And how can you prevent a marriage from going bad—or rescue one that already has?

“After years of research, we can answer these questions… But the most rewarding findings are the seven principles that prevent a marriage from breaking up, even for those couples we tested in the lab who seemed headed for divorce.”

John M. and Julie Gottman

(Adapted from Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, by John M. Gottman, Ph.D., and Nan Silver, Three Rivers Press, 1999)

Help Me Build a Better Future

“When we at the No Impact Project first launched our immersion program in extreme environmental living—No Impact Week—I didn’t dream that more than 15,000 people would participate in only a year and a half.

That’s a lot of people taking on a big commitment. It’s a lot of people with big hearts, who care about how we live and are questing for a better life. It’s humbling how many individuals around the world truly want to take responsibility for our planet’s problems and find a better way to live—a way based on human values rather than economic ones …“
