Ladies! Your problems are SOLVED with this handy guide. Thankfully, a wonderful man has stepped up to give the you all the info you need to clear up all those problems with your husband.
Did you know your problems stem from not putting yourself out there enough for your family? (You are so selfish!)
Have you let yourself “go”? (Check your hair and clothes right now!)
Are you a nag? (He works so hard to keep you happy, you ungrateful shrew!)
Quit your complaining, shut up and get back to your “natural” womanly instincts. The Lord wants it this way.
So, what is marriage all about? Teens want to know and this is the guide!
Nothing particularly earth shattering here. Basics about sharing, money management, apartments, children, etc. This is basically a plea for teens to be cautious. Despite the cover, there is very little about painting a wall. My dad would say that if you want to test a relationship, a couple should have to paint and/or wall paper a small bathroom in hot weather. If you can do that without killing each other, you can probably manage a marriage.
As far as this book is concerned, there is nothing “wrong” with this book. It’s just dated and probably would not be used by any teen. The hair and fashion depicted is a dead giveaway that this book is hardly speaking to a contemporary audience. (You can almost hear Milli Vanilli playing in the background).
Submitter: My local library has two circulating copies, and one at storage of this relic from the 1980’s. I scanned a few good pages to help give some insight into the mindset of an 80’s man.
Holly: Two circulating copies AND one in storage? Whyyyyy?
