How Not to F*ck Up Your Marriage Too Bad is the frank, intimate and provocative follow-up to the 2018 Audible Original How Not to F*ck Up Your Kids Too Bad, exploring the equally thorny and confusing world of marriage. 

In each episode author and columnist Stephen Marche goes on a journey to answer a question that everyone in a marriage or long term relationship faces at some point. They’re the very real problems he faces himself.   

Should we schedule sex? How do we stop fighting? How do we live together? Can marriage survive death?  

From infidelity to divorce, modern marriages are messy and there aren’t always simple or happy answers. This series makes sense of the messiness.

Good information nicely delivered.

I really liked this series. For me, in the context of a contented 30+ yr marriage, I learned a thing or two! And HA!, several things we already practice turn out to be good planning on our part. I'd recommend this to anyone in or thinking about a marriage. Or anyone who knows somebody who is married. The format and performance are listenable and the content is sometimes witty, sometimes heartbreaking, and always relevant.

Another bull's-eye of an audio series

After listening to the series "How not to f*ck up your kids too much" I had high expectations for this. They were absolutely fulfilled! A great series, sensitively and humorously presented, with a super high proportion of deep and interesting information.

Heart warming and Frank.

I enjoyed the presentation style, everyone was very easy to listen to. There were interesting insights and it's a great aid to reflection on your own situation. We often learn the most from listening to the stories of others.

Really helpful advice on so many aspects of marriage

Covers so any aspects of marriage from sex, to fighting, death of a spouse, infidelity, differences in beliefs, divorce, and why get married at all?!! Thought provoking, lots of interesting real life examples and really helped me see things in my own marriage that I hadn’t understood. I think all people in relationships would find something here that is useful and helpful to their own situation. Easy to listen to.
