The New Couples Publication date : October 1, 1997

With the increasing volatility of familial and professional relations, more and more people try to define themselves as part of a couple. Yet today the average relationship lasts only nine years and thus we must be ready to adapt even more.
How and why do we decide to become "a couple"? Once we are a couple, how can we preserve our couple's identity within our familial and social relations ? What sort of obstacles will we encounter and how can we resolve them ? Robert Neuburger shows us that by becoming a couple, we are also creating a safe-haven from an indifferent and sometimes hostile world.
Robert Neuburger is a psychoanalyst and therapist for couples. His book is based on his professional experiences with heterosexual, homosexual, and transgenerational couples and even the relationships between twins.
