    It wasn't what I expected...

    This book had some neat quotes that I could use in the heat of the moment to help me cool down when there has been another episode with his ex-wife. Other than that, it focused alot on how 'next wives' were second. I didn't like that, even my husband felt as though that was bogus! I read it in one night and was extremely disappointed that I was unable to relate to any of the examples of 'ex wives and next wives' horror stories!
