A New Map for Relationships

How would you like to never have another fight or argument? And how would you feel if doing that helped bring peace to the world?

You are invited to eavesdrop as we reveal the secrets that allowed us to transform an almost failed marriage into one where we reclaimed the true love that we felt when we first met fifty years ago. Our marriage became a laboratory where we learned how to resolve seemingly unfathomable differences through holistic thinking and compassion. Listen in on our conversations so that you can do the same.

Working on global issues proved critical to bringing magic back into our marriage, and truly loving personal relationships provide the model for a peaceful, sustainable planet. Through formerly top secret documents, you will see scheming and outright lies get us into one needless war after another. You will also see how the same tools that transformed our marriage—holistic thinking and compassion—can avoid future such catastrophes.

The essence of this book is: “You have to believe in the seemingly impossible gifts of unconditional love and a more peaceful planet, and then dedicate yourself to discovering how to achieve them.”

By revealing the mistakes that nearly ruined our marriage as well as the healing process that has us madly in love again, the book provides solid evidence for that belief. The hard-earned lessons from our journey will ease your own.

Former Secretary of Defense William J. Perry praises A New Map for Relationships as “a truly unique book that tells an engaging and persuasive story relating domestic peace to world peace.” He goes on to advise that “this book should be read by married couples seeking peace at home, as well as by diplomats seeking peace in the world.”

Who We Are

We married as polar opposites.
Marty loves logic and taught electrical engineering at MIT and Stanford. Dorothie is intuitive and puts more stock in feelings.
Not understanding those differences nearly destroyed our marriage. By learning to honor each other’s perspective, we were able to create a loving space in which we recaptured the true love we felt in our initial infatuation.
That also led us to fall in love with the world as a whole, and we found that the same principles that saved our marriage — compassionate holistic thinking — will save the Earth.
