Caroline Madden, relationship therapist and author, publishes a humorous guide to a happy marriage titled “How to Go From Soul Mates to Roommates in 10 Easy Steps.” The book is intended for newlyweds and couples who could use a refresher course on how to keep a marriage strong.
“Affair recovery specialists typically only see combative, on-the-brink of divorce, someone-cheated couples,” Madden says. “However, the couple didn’t begin the marriage that way. At one time both partners were happy to have found a soul mate.”
Madden is nationally known for an affair recovery practice in Burbank and several books addressing infidelity. “Too often couples go from giddy and in love to hating one another,” Madden says. “This book is a playful-yet-practical guide to remaining soul mates instead of becoming roommates that no longer trust or respect each other. It examines the factors that causes marital partners to build up resentment and distrust, and breaks those factors down into practical steps that can be taken to remain close as a couple.”
“How to Go From Soul Mates to Roommates” is a change in direction for Madden. While the previous books incorporate humor, the books are primarily serious, dealing with very sensitive topics such as infidelity and restitution of a relationship, if possible. This piece is more light hearted than Madden’s previous books, but it still deals with important subject matter that every couple, newly married or together for decades, can benefit from. However, the tone of the book is fun, light and positive. “The book is written with playful, tongue-in-cheek humor. The voice is intended to make the reader laugh and want to share portions of the book with others as a good joke centered around a very important kernel of truth. It is perfect for newlyweds or soon-to-be parents that need a gentle reminder that it is important to prioritize the relationship over other distractions.”
Madden has been working as a therapist since 2001. Learn more about Caroline Madden at her Burbank relationship therapist website.
