    1. This is a book that was assigned reading for a college class. I am having a hard time figuring how how much I actually hated this book, and how much I just hate my teacher for continually assigning really, really, REALLY awful books as mandatory reading. A lot of other reviews said they didn't like this book because they felt like the book doesn't give clear enough instructions about how to achieve a peer marriage. Personally, I think I hate this book because I think the author has a totally gro [...]

    2. I am not quite sure when I bought Love Between Equals by Dr. Pepper Schwartz. The full title of Dr. Schwartz’s book really grabbed me: Love Between Equals: How Peer Marriage Really Works. That’s exactly what I wanted and had not been able to articulate to myself: a peer marriage. I did not want to spend my life working and taking care of children and doing housework and basically running myself into the ground. I didn’t want to be superwoman, I wanted a true partnership that split the hous [...]

    3. Ana amazing look at the pros and cons of traditional, near-peer and peer/egalitarian marriage. Should be required reading for all humans that want to be in relationships, which is basically everybody.

    4. Both as a Marriage and Family therapy student and as a woman about to get married, I was interested in this book's premise. The concept is great and I think that peer marriage is something to be sought. However, Pepper Schwartz doesn't really go into any detail into how to achieve a peer marriage, just a lot of detail about how and why traditional marriage is unhealthy. My feeling is, if you are reading this book, or contemplating it, you already know how unhealthy traditional marriages can be. [...]

    5. This book is well written with several case studies thrown in to help present the material. I think I like the idea of peer marriage, but it sounds challenging to maintain. I get the sense that the couple become so close, after a while they see each other as siblings. NOT something I want in my marriage! I appreciate the commentary on income disparity and how egalitarian marriages work best when both make about the same amount of money.

    6. I bought this for $1 at a thrift store as a joke 6 months ago and I've been keeping it next to the toilet, reading paragraphs here and there, while slowly growing to love and respect its prose without any irony whatsoever.

    7. Love Between Equals: How Peer Marriage Really Works by Pepper Schwarts, PhD Some great information. For a full review, click on the post's title. 

    8. I used to recommend this book to clients and students a lot. It's a terrific, realistic evaluation of relationships - but I would guess that's it's getting a bit old now.
