  1. And not one mention of sex. Rather depressing, but very predictable.

  2. This reminds me of one of those too-good-to-be-true things a male character says in a novel – that gives you hope. “Yes! A man really CAN think like that!” But then you find out it was written by a woman and you say, “Oh. Of course. A man really CAN’T think like that.” Then every once in a while some writer comes along with the sensitivity of a woman who CLAIMS to be male… Well I for one am not falling for it, Patricia Caneday! I went down this path with Edward Cullen and I won’t be snookered again!

  3. Advice? Kiss your sex life goodbye:P. Is this stereotype a joke or is there truth behind it….dun dun dun!

    The primary lesson:

    Your marriage is your particular, peculiar relationship. It will not be exactly like anyone else’s, so don’t look to anyone else’s as the perfect model. It will be what you two make of it, just you, no one else. No one really knows what goes on in someone else’s marriage, so don’t rely too much on other people to tell you “what marriage is.” Listen to some advice, but be prepared to ignore any advice. Take the advice that seems to be useful, and discard the rest.

    Or maybe postpone the advice, because the second lesson is that your marriage will change over time.

  5. Forgiveness and love go hand in hand.
