OK so I had a few problems with this book. First, one of the authors separated from her husband right before the book was published..if the rules didn't work for her then why would they work for me??? Second, the advice they give is just ridiculous, contradicting, and lets just say...not agreeable to anyone with an ounce of feminism in them. I would not recommend this book to any of the modern women of our era...This book seems like it should have been published in the fifties..
