Ugh I used to like Dr. Laura on the radio, but this sounds like the kind of anti-feminism written by people who think feminist = misandry. I'm surprised to find this in the pile of books given to me by a friend.

So far, I don't like the constant emphasis that martial bliss rests on the foundation of a traditional marriage where the male financially supports the household and the female takes care of the children. I understand there are gender differences, but who can afford to be supported by their husband? If you are a stay-at-home mom, lucky you. If not, then try not to get too discouraged by reading this book. I would suggest reading "The Good Marriage" by Wallerstein and Blakeslee instead.

I learned what NOT to do in my marriage, but I read this after the damage had already been done. My only hope is to always appreciate my husband using the skills taught in this book.
