Product Description:
Author Stan Cronin's curiosity led to his writing this unique book! He devised and circulated a very detailed questionnaire in which he asked wives about their dating relationships with their husbands. More than a thousand wives responded, and brother, did they unload on him! They wrote very frank replies revealing both the good and bad traits of their husbands, and expressing exactly what they desired in their husband-wife relationships. Personal desires and viewpoints varied, of course, but their cumulative answers sent some strong signals to the husbands of today.

Armed with their insights, Stan has written How to Date Your Wife--a book that can bring very large doses of happiness to marriages if the husbands will read the book and apply it. And wives, if they are wise, will do well to put the book in their husband's hands at their earliest opportunity.

Cronin's observations of thousands of family fights during his police career caused him to recognize the three worlds possible for marriages: failed, make-do, and cheerfully successful. Seeing failed marriages fueled his desire to discover what "successfully" married couples do to keep the passion alive. He interviewed scores of wives and distributed over 1,000 surveys to married women in ten states to get the information for this book. These wives were forthright with what was taking place inside their homes. This book is the result of those interviews. The ideas presented here are not just those of the author, they are primarily those of the wives.

The author wants all who will, to have at their fingertips some of the "secrets" that create a happy, peaceful and long lasting marriage, and he truly hopes that this book will bring much happiness to many.

    A must have for every married couple

    WOW! What a powerful book. Every married couple (and those thinking of marriage) should have a copy. The wives that Mr. Cronin interviewed were quite open about their wants and wishes. Husbands can learn a lot in a short read. By looking at the lists for dates in the chapters, husbands don't even need to read the content (though I would strongly advise them to do so). Husbands can find all the ideas for exciting dates that they ever wanted in one place. Bravo for Mr. Cronin! Great job of researching, compiling and writing this book. Buy it and be happily married forever.

    This is the book

    I can't say enough about this book. The ideas are varied and many. The thoughts of the wives are along the same lines as mine. The author has done a fantastic job of bringing all this together in one place. Every married couple should have a copy of this book and read it. My marriage is better because of this book.

    How to Date Your Wife

    Stan Cronin¿s book provides wonderful, practical, and fun ideas that can help husbands and wives improve their marriage relationships. I believe that if every couple put into practice just some of the ideas Stan suggests, they would find more joy and stability in their marriages. I strongly recommend this book. ¿Sharon R.

    Great book for husbands ... and wives!

    After applying just a few of the ideas listed in this book I have seen a tremendous change in my husband ... and me. I found that I can use the same ideas and make my husband happy too. This is the unltimate book to keep the fire alive or get it going again if it is only flickering.

    Excellent book for husbands and wives

    I have been married for over 30 years. When my husband and I practiced the principles in this book we saw amazing improvement in our marriage. My mother got a copy and though she is in her seventies, she said a miracle happened in her marriage. Her husband made the bed the day after reading part of the book. Its easy to use the ideas one at a time or by grouping them together. I can truly say that I am happier now than I have even been in my marriage. My marriage is more exciting and passionate. You have to add this book to your library.

    A worthwhile book, with good ideas for spending time with your spouse

    Unlike many relationship advice books, this one is not written by someone with one or more degrees in the area, nor is it written by someone who has worked as a paid relationship advisor. Instead, the author is a retired police officer who has had a happy marriage, and who has also seen many unhappy marriages and love relationships as a result of decades of police calls to domestic disputes.

    Even though the author is an "amateur", I think the book is worth reading as it stresses the need for all married men (especially those with younger kids) to arrange for dates with their wives, and gives a number of suggestions for things to do on those dates. While some have suggested he focuses too much on travel, I don't think that is correct as there are a large number of non-travel suggestions. Also, some reviews have said that he assumes that the reader has lots of money to pay for dates, but that is not true either as he went on a number of fancy trips even though he was working on a policeman's salary. Moreover, the book stresses the need to budget for big trips, as well as cautioning the reader to not buy too much "stuff" for himself while neglecting to spend money to do things with his wife.

    Basically, I don't think any man can go wrong buying this book, as I don't think there is any wife out there who would say "Gee, honey, please ignore me and just spend all your money on beer and big screen TVs."

    I needed this book

    After a few years of marriage I had run out of ideas to try and make things fresh and exciting between me and my wife. I got this book and WOW ... there are hundreds of ideas to keep me going for a long time. I am even combining some ideas and that works great too. I also learned much more about my wife than she had never revealed. When I asked her about some of the things that other wives had spoken of in this book she admitted that some of those things had been on her mind for a while but she didn't know how to talk to me about them without hurting my feelings or making me angry. Thank you Mr. Cronin for helping me. If you are a husband, get this and skim through it. Don't tell your wife you have it and try some of the ideas and see what she says about the new you. If you are a wife. get this for your husband or have someone else give it to him as a gift. Hopefully he will open it and make both of you happier.

    How to Date Your Wife

    I am 50 years old and never thought much about dating my husband. I do now. My husband is always trying out new ideas from the book. We are having the best time of our married life. This book will make a tremendous difference in your marriage. I sent a copy of the book to my mother (over 70 years old, sorry mom) and she said it instantly made a difference in her husband. He made the bed the first day after starting to read the book.
