I Am Glad I Wrote This

I almost didn't write this book, that was originally published as "99 Things Women Wish They Knew Before Saying 'I Do.'" The publisher wanted me to fit her series and I was not sure I wanted to and I did not want to do the work of distilling what I knew women needed to know.

Then a friend said, "We'll help you." and I realized that I could ask other women, lots of them, to answer  my basic question.

Actually, there were two questions: "Have you ever been married?" and, if the answer was yes, "What do you wish you had known before you got married?"

I had a wonderful time doing the research. I asked the question wherever I was–in the locker room at the Y, in a sewing circle, waiting in line at the post office–you get the idea. The discussions were incredible.

On line answers came from 8 different countries, and the resulting distillation of information provided women with information they really needed. The reviews were great.

Read it, enjoy–and learn!

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 16 of Being Married: Secrets Women Wish They Knew. You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here.
