How To Keep Your Marriage From Sucking
The keys to keep your wedlock out of deadlock
By Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola
The perfect book for anyone in a committed relationship or thinking of putting a ring on it, Behrendt and Ruotola are your warm, honest, often-hilarious guides for the wild ride that is marriage.
From the New York Times bestselling authors of He's Just Not That Into You, It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken, and It's Just a F***ing Date comes a hilarious and hopeful primer to eliminate the suckage in modern marriage by doing it right in the early years. If you're in a committed relationship or thinking about putting a ring on it, then this is the book for you!
Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola explore all the adventures of early wedlock, from the moment one of you gets on one knee to the day when sex starts to feel like work instead of play. In this guidebook, Behrendt and Ruotola explore their own marriage and, with gleeful candor, tremendous warmth, sharp humor, and piercing insight, look at what we who have decided to "settle down" hope to get out of our most lasting relationship. We venture through volumes on the engagement, wedding planning, the Big Day, the wedding hangover, the (blissful?) first year, the hard work of marrying two lives, fights, and sex-pectations versus sex-pectreality.
The perfect book for those who have just put a ring on it or are thinking of putting a ring on it, Behrendt and Ruotola's work is a brilliant guide for the first stretch of that wild ride we call marriage.
