I have recently come across this book by Tara Parker-pope, author of the New York Times‘s Well blog. I’ve always liked her stuff in the New York Times, so I thought I’d give this book a try. I was a little surprised to learn that one of the reasons she wrote the book was to explore some of the reasons why she thought her own marriage had recently ended in divorce. But I did really appreciate her candor and approach to this subject. This is a great book, chock full of current and fascinating research on why a marriage succeeds. She explores areas such as monogamy, love, sex, children, money, and housework—and provides lots of good, practical advice.
I think this is a book everyone should read – especially those who are contemplating marriage. It is so important to know this stuff prior to the “I Do.” To find out more about the book, click here
