Changing our view of marriage

choose husbandFeminism changed the way women felt about marriage.  Women started putting off marriage.   They believed the lie that women were better off relying on themselves and not depending on men.  The problem is that women discover, often too late, that being single isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Suzanne Venker’s bold new book, “How to Choose a Husband and Make Peace with Marriage“, dispels the myth that women are better off without men.  In spite of the title, this book is not a guidebook in finding a spouse.  It’s not going to show you where to go find a man who will put a ring on your finger.  The purpose of Venker’s book is to change the way you think about marriage because you can’t find the right person if you can’t be the right person.

If you are a young, single female and you’ve fallen for the lie that feminism has perpetuated, then reading this book will either offend you or change you.  You will either walk away with your heels firmly dug in or you will decide that maybe waiting until your 30s or 40s to get married may not be such a good idea.

If you are older and have been married for awhile, you may still hold some feminist attitudes that have affected your marriage in a detrimental way.  By following the 12-step plan Venker lays out in her book, you may find a happier marriage waiting for you.
