"Barondess' informed and occasionally raucous examination of the institution is cheaper than consulting a divorce attorney or hiring a wedding caterer, and is well-worth a look before doing either." (Publishers Weekly)
"Marriage and divorce are two very serious and expensive decisions (trust me, I know). At $600 per hour, this hilarious but sobering book contains approximately $44,000 worth of legal advice from one of the top lawyers in the country. If only I had read this book first." (Montel Williams)
If you are considering marriage I would recommend this book. It will give you a good solid introduction. It will also let you know your pre-marriage options: careful screening of spouse, back-ground checks, and pre-nuptials (or "the life-jacket" as the author describes it).
If you are currently going through a divorce you may also find this book helpful. The author describes the importance of selecting a good attorney, how to manage your attorney once you have one, and the various and sundry details one must know while going through this difficult process.
If you have already been divorced and are considering re-marriage then you will probably find this book an empathetic shoulder to cry on.
There are drawbacks. The reader is poor. He mis-speaks many times and then pauses and slowly repeats the sentence. This annoys. Many of the speakers the author brings in (Louis Black, Montel Williams, Gene Simmons) add an oddball view on marriage -- relevant only to a few.
The author also has a tendency to go on long diatribes about his dislike of the legal system and recommends that all those who annoy him to "up their dosage."
In general I think you will find this book helpful. It is hard to get useful information about this important subject. This book will provide much of it.
Not exactly a topic for entertainment but I did find it very informative and his style and stories did indeed give some entertainment. I am very glad I listened to it.
If you are wondering whether or not to get married, then read (listen) to this book. It will open your eyes to the reality of marriage and the likelihood of divorce. Gives real accounts of the extremes that people will go to in divorce. If you have a friend that is doubting his/her upcoming marriage then this is the book to give - do not give as a wedding gift tho!
Great!!! Had me laughing and crying at times. What an eye opener. Thanks for the great info.
I feel that even if you are not going through one of these situations, you should still get quite a bit from this book. You never know!
