Finally! A Book About Equality in Marriage!
is a book everyone should read. It is the work of two respected family counselors, Ron and Elda Soderquist, who celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary by publishing an engaging, frankly written guide to becoming a “vitalized” couple.
Men and women have been struggling for decades to achieve a more democratic form of relationship than their parents had. But wanting equality is far easier than achieving it. The Soderquists have used their counseling and personal experiences to construct a series of engaging vignettes and practical exercises that will let equality blossom in any marriage.
Couples will be able to examine their relationship’s strengths and weaknesses as they study the Soderquists’ 10 keys to lasting love; their discussion of how to overcome “habits from home”; their description of how “equal” couples listen to each other; their explanation of how being able to express emotions is central to equality; their tips on how to forgive, and when to withhold forgiveness, and their insight into how equality enriches a couple’s sex life.
To read “EQUALITY” is to take a half-century ride with the Soderquists through a sometimes-bumpy but always earnest relationship in which equality was hard-earned but cherished. The book is filled with exercises that will allow husbands and wives to talk to each other as equals, setting the stage for negotiations that lead to the kind of marital democracy the Soderquists enjoy.
