    Interesting Read

    One thing I would like to say is that you must be realistic when reading something like this. The basic methods of how the data was collected makes sense and helps to show trends. I thought that much of what I read was in some ways common sense, but only if you're perceptive of your surroundings. One important thing that was mentioned is that if your a professional woman and want a husband, family, etc. YOU are the one that has to make time for it. Time won't make itself available to you. Another thing was that didn't surprise me was that they found women tended to push marriage more than men. A funny thing that was mentioned more than once and is completely true: Men do not usually pick up on vague or little hints. Probably in part because they are like everyone else: Busy! Its hard to think of that sometimes but important to know and remember for anyone in a relationship. So overall its a nice reminder of real life. This book is different because it doesn't just say 'do this do that' but it has some stats behind it showing that trends showed that when people 'did this and did that' ended up getting married or didn't. Don't think that it will help me get married but helped me to figure out whether I was overreacting about not being engaged at this point in my relationship with the bf.

    Great read, I have recommended it to all of my friends!

    It started out a little slow, however the diagnostics and undercurrent of psychological distress both men and women endure while searching for mates is clearly presented.

    Beware Women

    When I read the review for Why Men Marry in a magazine I thought it would be a fun and helpful book. BEWARE WOMEN! This book has nice statistics but the advice is not only a slash at individualism but a hindrance to the evolving woman who is both bold and precious in her own right. If anything, pick up the book in the bookstore, look at pages 20 & 21, Statistical Truths About the Marrying Kind, and then set it down. The introduction will give you a taste of the egotism and lack of respect that author John T. Malloy possess. Instead, I recommend The Fabulous Girl¿s Guide to Decorum. This book will break down the modern woman¿s true wonders about dating and marrying.
