Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited follow-up to her groundbreaking best seller, now Dr. Laura focuses on how men and women need to understand and appreciate the uniqueness of masculinity and femininity; what the best ways to relate, caretake, and nurture each other are; and how to bring a marriage back from the brink of disaster.

Jumping off her million-copy best seller The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura asserts that in order to produce and sustain a wonderfully satisfying marriage, spouses must recognize and appreciate the polarity between masculine and feminine. Both husband and wife have power in the relationship, and each needs to realize this in order to ensure personal satisfaction. Using real-life examples from her call-in radio show, and giving real-life solutions, Dr. Laura focuses on the typical mistakes made by men and women in their relationships and shows how marriages can come back from the brink of disaster and divorce.

    "Don't feel bad"

    From a guys perspective I felt an overwhelming sense of appreciation for the love of my life after listening to this book.

    The main point I took from it is that your spouse is supposed to be the one person you can confide in without hesitation, and you are to love respect them as if they were a direct gift from God himself (as they are!).

    Also that happiness has everything to do with your attitude and how you confront any given situation, it's not created by circumstance, or by some 'lucky break'.

    I really enjoyed it, especially learning about the opposite sex's "Likes" and "Dislikes" it was illuminating and profoundly changed how I approach my spouse.

    If you realize you're doing something that may be hurting your spouse, don't feel bad, just step up to the plate and be the spouse you know they would love. I did, and I love being that man for her.

    Story
    "Very Helpful"
    Would you listen to The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage again? Why?

    I am listening to it again right now. It is a book I will go back to when I feel like I need to be reminded of the advice given.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dr. Laura Schlessinger


    What does Lily LoBianco and Dr. Laura Schlessinger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can listen to it along with my husband rather than both of us reading the book separately. The narration was great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me feel relieved actually.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was extremely helpful, something we were actually happy to hear. The last thing we wanted to do was try to learn all of these special words we should say to each other, walking on eggshells was not what we needed. It is straightforward and honest and helped us realize what we were doing wrong without any covert language. Loved it and am thankful for it!

    "Practical Advice"

    Good practical advice. This about my 7th marriage help book. It ranks about 3. I like Dr. Laura's style in this book. My wife wasn't so impressed.

    "An Angry Old Woman"

    This book is all about an angry old woman complaining about society and feminism. It has no beneficial content. This book takes only a negative perspective and does a lot of political and societal bashing. You'll love it if you are against feminism, but it won't help your marriage.
