The First Year of Marriage:

What to Expect, What to Accept and What You Can Change

by Miriam Arond and Samuel L. Pauker, M.D. (Warner Books)

Based on an exclusive, groundbreaking statistical survey of newlyweds nationwide and hundreds of interviews, The First Year of Marriage: What to Expect, What to Accept and What You Can Change is packed with striking findings, psychological insights, helpful tips, advice, and checklists, and dozens of anecdotes of couples navigating the emotional and practical challenges of adjusting to marriage.


Published in six editions, The First Year of Marriage has become the bible for newlyweds. It has received rave reviews, extensive media coverage, and been excerpted in numerous magazines, newspapers, and books. Coauthors Miriam Arond and Dr. Pauker have been quoted in the New York Times, LA Times, Newsweek, USA Today, Washington Post, theknot.com, Brides, Bridal Guide, Self, and Reader's Digest, and been guests on dozens of TV and radio talk shows, including CBS Morning Show, Oprah, Geraldo, and Regis. They have presented their findings at the American Psychiatric Association, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and the Association for Couples in Marriage Enrichment. The First Year of Marriage is required reading in many college classes on sociology of the family and was translated for publication in Poland and China.
