Newlywed
A Survival Guide to the First Years of Marriage
Piljac
1985

As a firm believer that marriage success is more about luck and circumstance, I am not sure I buy into some magic formula to avoid divorce. That said, I am all for better communication, and most of this advice is centered on that idea.  Not a bad idea, but hardly a panacea for marriage problems.

I got married in the early 1980s, and would have been the target market for this book. I have watched many younger adults, including my own adult children face issues that weren’t even on my radar. Job pressures, health insurance, debt, and a host of other issues make this book almost quaint.

  1. Love that misspelling in the second example. Why do they have a clammer in their house, I wonder? That could be the problem in their marriage 😀

    1. Ha ha ha! That is great! “Escape to the bathroom and drown out the outside clammer.” I am picturing someone being menaced by an old fisherman every day after work. Damn! I knew that clammer would only cause trouble in my marriage! Why do I keep inviting him over?

      1. I had the exact same thought! If the clammer is bothering you every single day after work, maybe call the police instead of running the tap 🙂

  2. Glad to see everyone else pickt up on the vile proofreading on page 111. How did they miss that, on the last line above a half blank page?? Everyone’s eyes are drawn to places like that!
