Overview

Father Pat Connor knows marriages. Having presided over more than two hundred weddings and conducted pre-marriage and marriage counseling for more than forty years, he's something of an expert. And now he is sharing his wealth of experience with women everywhere on the subject of Whom Not to Marry.

Father Pat's philosophy is simple: A love affair may lead to marriage, but love itself cannot make a marriage work. That's why it's important to weed out the bad seed's before you fall in love. Sounds easy enough, but in the early stages of romance, when infatuation trumps judgment, it can be difficult to see the flaws in your mate and to think rationally about your future. That's where this book comes in. A heavenly how-not-to, Whom Not to Marry offers timely and time-honored advice such as:

  • Never marry a man who has no friends, for he won't be capable of the intimacy that marriage demands.
  • Never marry a man who isn't responsible with cash. Most marriages that flounder do so because of money, a case of 'til debt do us part.
  • Never marry a man who lets you walk all over him. It's good to have a doormat in the house, but not if it's your husband.

Life may seem random, but there are many things you can do to make sure your life partner is the right one. It all starts with being honest with yourself. Use your good judgment, Father Pat counsels. Know what you want. Know who is worth loving and who is worth marrying. Once you can do that, you'll stand a much better chance of living happily ever after.

    Humorously Delightful

    Normally, one wouldn't expect a Catholic priest to be able to give advice on whom to marry, but this little book is a real gem! It is peppered with information and humorous anecdotes, mingled with some of the most clear cut and honest reasons for choosing the right mate. What should one look for in a potential spouse and what qualities should send us fleeing in the opposite direction? Can he be patient, courteous and respectful of our feelings? Is he humble and able to compromise on issues or is his jealousy tearing your relationship apart? As the book says, love is patient, kind and rejoices in the truth.

    Those who have been married for a while may also appreciate remembering why they married the man they did. What were the special things that touched your heart? When was the last time you really listened to your spouse or told him how much some of the little things he does say he really loves you? Does he put you down in public, in front of his friends (or yours) or does he treat you like a queen? This book is a quick, enjoyable read, one which will linger in your mind for some time.
