Behind the Book: Marriage Misery

It's morning. You open your eyes. It's quiet. The kids are asleep. Your husband is asleep. (Or hopefully, he's dead. That's how bad things are going right now.) You turn your head and see him lying there... breathing. (Damn.) Boy, what you wouldn't do to have the bed ALL TO YOURSELF for just one night. And speaking of sleeping alone, why did you marry him? (Wait, those two things have nothing to do with each other.)

You're miserable.

Honest women can admit that marriage has a misery stage. This stage can begin as soon as the day after your wedding. Marriage Misery occurs when your reality falls short of your expectations.

Rachel and Marc know all about this. In What If You're Over My Sh*t?, Rachel and Marc fight a war between their reality and expectations. They detail their Battle of Marriage Misery, having two opposing and yet believable sides.

Read the first chapter, where Rachel fired the opening shots of her Marriage War. And remember, wars are bloody, brutal, and long. They can end in one-sided victories or truces. And they seldom end in truces.


Why Are We Afraid To Have It ALL?
