Nearly every marriage will experience the serious illness of one of the partners. And when that happens, the well spouse is bound to be affected. Roles change, responsibilities shift, and the relationship absorbs the blows. Marriages where one spouse is chronically ill are much more likely to end in divorce. But there are marriages, beset by serious illnesses, that not only survive, but thrive. In Sickness and In Health: Strengthening Your Marriage When Your Spouse Is Ill is about these kinds of marriages. It is about courage. It is about taking care of your partner--and yourself. It is about maintaining intimacy under difficult circumstances. It is about transforming your marriage into something fulfilling and satisfying.
The authors discuss roles changes, shifts in responsibility, and the blows a marriage must sustain when one partner becomes seriously ill.
