Great insight

This book contains 24 essays on the topic of marriage. Female authors share their experiences of the married life and why they wouldn't trade it for anything. Reading it made me feel like getting advice from wise friends on why it's important to work things out in a marriage. I truly enjoyed this and found it very positive and encouraging.

Why I'm Still Married

I was very pleased. The books arrived at the time and in the condition promised by the seller. I would definitely buy again from this seller.

Better than I expected

I was expecting this to be a collection of "old fashioned" love stories-- women who found their mates early on and had longtime (20+ years) marriages that had endured hardships due to the stamina, patience, and tolerance of the women. However, that was the exception to the rule (thankfully). Most of the women had been married more than once, had loved and lost and found something better the second or even third time around. It was very interesting to read about the different types of relationships, both conventional and unconventional, in which love was so strong that commitment was a natural and desireable outcome.

Why Am I Still Married?

Each marriage had commonalities - conflict, love, lust, anger. And they all shared a deep desire to work hard, change when needed and support loved ones in their times of change. That is not to say that any two stories were alike or that any marriage is the same. It made me wonder "Why am I still married after 18 years?" And it prompted me to discuss it with my husband, which brought us closer together. Thanks to the wonderful authors for being so powerfully frank about their lives.

Amazingly Personal

It's rare to be sharing so many intimate details about what's right and what's wrong in a marriage, probing as deeply into one's heart - even with best friends - as these women do. For some reason I find it harder to talk about my relationship openly since I've been married. I'm amazed that these authors had the courage to write such personal stories. I couldn't put it down, long after I knew I should be asleep, for several nights in a row. I'm definately going to share this book with my best friends; maybe it will inspire us to help each other through some of the difficult stuff we keep inside.
