Toward Commitment

Diane teamed up with her husband, retired attorney John Rehm, for Toward Commitment (Knopf 2002), a frank series of essays on marriage.

With extraordinary candor and generosity, they open up for the reader their decades-long marriage, revealing the strong and passionate bond between them as well as the conflicts and turmoils that can overtake a relationship. They grapple with their pronounced differences of background, attitude, and expectation, so that the reader actually watches them working to understand each other and themselves, and to resolve issues that even after their decades together have remained hurtful and destructive.
