Book: The Commuter Marriage


As society becomes more mobile and as jobs move or involve travel more than ever, couples must learn new ways to stay connected both physically and mentally.

THE COMMUTER MARRIAGE:  Keep Your Relationship Close While You’re Far Apart (Adams Media 2008) speaks directly to the more than 4 million couples facing unique struggles created by the miles keeping them apart. Spending time apart is both a blessing and a problem. It can freshen your relationship and remind you what you love most about your partner; or, if you begin to resent the separation and don’t communicate well while you’re apart, your marriage could unravel quickly. With exercises and case studies, The Commuter Marriage helps long-distance couples stay connected via new technology, and offers invaluable guidance on how to make a long-distance relationship the best it can possibly be.

  1. You are so right – when I was first married I had to travel quite a bit, so I appreciate your effort to help those families stay together. That is a very high calling. 😉

  2. Wow! Thanks for the plug! There are a lot of great ideas for marrieds and parents who travel a lot. Stay close to your spouse and kids, and you’ll be happier.
