Chiu begins with a four-chapter literature review examining mental illness among spouses of psychiatric patients, psychological and sociological perspectives, genetics and evolution and key ethical issues. Chiu’s study then proceeds to shed some light on a personality dimensions, marital satisfaction and how one can better adapt to the environment by creating a social milieu through marriage that is accepting, understanding, and less demanding.
