You won't be able to avoid problems in marriage if you don't recognize the traps. Twelve Traps in Today's Marriage describes some of the destructive habits, expectations, and mistakes many Latter-day Saints slip into. The author, Dr. Brent A. Barlow, an associate professor in family sciences and a marriage counselor, writes:

"Many married couples today unknowingly get into situations—traps, if you will—that can be harmful to marriage. This may be out of ignorance, apathy, or innocence, or any combination of the three. Through marriage counseling sessions and . . . marriage seminars I have conducted, . . . I have identified what I believe to be twelve major traps in contemporary marriage:

The Time Trap
The Tradition Trap
The Togetherness Trap
The Tenderness Trap
The Talk Trap
The Tyranny Trap
The Turmoil Trap
The Temper Trap
The Tension Trap
The Touch Trap
The Temptation Trap
The Television Trap
Learn about each traps and what to do to get out of them or stay away from them. Twelve Traps in Today's Marriage—and How to Avoid Them is a searching examination of LDS contemporary marriage and an inspiring look at how to make marriage better.
