Maryannelive interview: "James Córdova: 'The Marriage Checkup: A Scientific Program for Sustaining and Strengthening Marital Health' "

How much attention are you paying to your relationship?

In a recent interview on the Maryannelive radio and podcast show, Clark University Psychology Professor and Chair James Córdova discusses his book, "The Marriage Checkup: A Scientific Program for Sustaining and Strengthening Marital Health."

"We don’t tend to think about our relationships as a health system, as being just as important to our physical health and mental health as any other thing that we take good and regular care of," Córdova tells host Maryanne Comaroto. "From that place, we let the ball drop a little bit, and forget that this is something that’s always available to us to be strengthened, to be nurtured, to be paid attention to in a way that we pay attention to things that matter the most to us."
