He reports of men bewildered to find themselves in marriages where they never get it right, or get any thanks for what they do. A typical lament to Carroll: ''Why in the f— am I doing all this when I don't get given the time of day?'' Their ''problem which has no name'' - marital discontent - remains unexplored.
