This study examines the connection between inequality in marriage and marital distress. Drawing on research and personal interviews in the UK, USA and Israel, it stresses the role of friendship in establishing a truly equal relationship. Focusing on issues of gender, sex roles and power, the author provides a clinical treatment model for therapists working with couples, which is much needed in todays climate of change.
