Why Men Marry Bitches: A Woman's Guide to Winning Her Man's Heart by Sherry Argov

Love and marriage, romance and intimacy...everybody wants it, but it seems only the select few get it. Never shy and always laugh-out-loud funny, Sherry Argov’s Why Men Marry Bitches is a sharp-witted manifesto that shows women how to transform a casual relationship into a committed one.

Dating can feel like a contact sport and modern mating rituals can be impossible to decode, with little consensus on the rules of engagement and both sides tired of the game. What’s an intelligent woman looking for a devoted relationship to do? Glad you asked…

With the grittiest of girlfriend-to-girlfriend confidence, Argov removes the kid gloves (knocking off your rose-colored glasses in the process) and explains why being extra nice won’t necessarily get you that wedding you’ve always dreamed of, and is more likely a sure path to disappointment. Going directly to the source in candid interviews, she shares an enlightening look into the psychology of the male mind.

Insightful, empowering and hysterical, this indispensable guide will reveal in honest detail:

*How do men manipulate a relationship to keep it casual?
*Do men deliberately push women’s emotional buttons?
*How can she convince him commitment was his idea?
*How can she invite a proposal without saying a word?

More than a self-help manual, this is a life skills handbook that both men and women can relate to, whether single, newly courting, recently separated or ready to embark on the next level of commitment in a current relationship. Why Men Marry Bitches will reveal how to set healthy boundaries, embrace your independence and take charge of your own happiness, so that you exude the kind of sexy confidence that will win his heart and get the love, respect, and loving relationship you deserve.

For those of you that liked the book but think we still need to be ourselves I have news for you ladies - MEN WANT A BITCH! I am a professional and have done really well professionaly however I always got taken advantage of in the love department. Recently I started dating my sisters friend that had been salivating over me for years because he thought I was smart, independent and a strong woman. However as soon as we started dating and I started doing things for him and being NICE and affectionate he took 10 steps back and started ignoring me and I being a woman that thought I was treating him right started to get emotional so he pushed further away. My point is I was catering to him because that is what most women do when they like someone, we are nurturers and we think doing things for them will impress them but he pushed away and now it is getting to the point that he doesn't even call and say he can't meet me, he just doesn't show up so since I demand respect and he is not giving me that it is time to throw in the towel and move on. Respect is something I always demanded from people but I let a man walk all over me... again. I thought because we were friends I could just be myself but WE CAN'T just be ourselves. This book put me in a better state of mind and I thank you for that, I should have read it 2 weeks ago.

Sherry Argov in her new book, Why Men Marry Bitches set the stage for the dating arena. Argov hold no bars. Unlike, no other book, her tell it like it is, in you face practical book offers advice on how to capture and keep the heart of your man. It is an excellent masterpiece that can easily be enjoyed in one sitting. Argov really tells women how to gain confidence and self-respect which put you in the drivers seat of the relationship. It is undoubtedly the best relationship book I have read thus far.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this one, far better than her previous works. Argov pulls the layers back much deeper in this title. She tells the reader that she spent hundreds of hours interviewing men, and when I read the material to professional and eligible men their feedback is that Argov really did get the secrets men rarely disclose. This book really empowers women--with knowledge. After reading the 'button pushing' chapter about how men deliberately antagonize women, I believe this is the most useful book FOR WOMEN that I've come across. It teaches women how to have self worth, and to make a man want to be exclusive with you. Excellent read. I've recommended it to my clients. Argov is a visionary and this book is new, fresh and builds on her previous works.

OMG What a great book!! This is better than Navajo whisperers to decipher 'male speak'. This book gives single women ammunition to go out and 'get that man'. And I've learned now that B-I-T-C-H isn't such a bad name afterwards!!

I read both books and highly recommend them. It seemed like up front, tough love advice from a good friend instead of a relationship book that I would be embarrassed to admit I own. I definitely realized things I have been doing wrong in relationships and will never again be the doormat or fall into the "too nice" habit.

This book is very encouraging. It is very real with the reader. It's also very fun to read. I just wish Argov would use a little more than just interviews with men and anecdotes. It might give her more credibility. However, the book is very truthful, very strong and when you're done it makes you think about what you want rather than what he wants.

I agree that this book will be helpful to women who don't already know that they are a great catch, but allow me to make it simple...don't focus on a man so much and focus on yourself more, and presto!...everything in this book will happen naturally. Men want what you want..someone they can respect, who's challenging, fun, (and if you're not having fun then get out..what's the point?) trustworthy, successful in their own right, confident and someone who.. now listen up ladies..LOVE'S HERSELF. :) If you have that, it shows and that's the biggest hook of all.

All I have to say is this is a great book, it is like no other. I bought it 2 nights ago and have already finished it and I work full time. I couldn't put it down. I really think more women need to read inspiring books like this so that they realize how strong they are and that men really do like that. I recommend this book to any female, young old married or single.

Bottom line, Sherry Argov tells women that they need to be secure & happy with themselves to be in a good, balanced relationship. Then she demystifies some of the common behavoir we've all come across in men - such as, why they don't call when they say they will, why they will elevate a conversation by pushing your buttons. After interviewing a lot of men, she explains why they do this and what they percieve to be desirable in a woman they want to be with. It does not tell you to be someone else or not be yourself. It sheds light on the dynamics between men and women and encourages a balanced relationship. Apparenlty there are some pretty common pitfalls out there - she's helping us to identify them and now HOW to act instead of REACT. Great book!

The first one helped me solidify traits that i knew were attractive to men and do away with some bad habits. Im back with an ex and theres already a difference in how we communicate. Def in a good way. Sherry proves with her common sense principles that commom sense isnt all too common anymore. A biig thank you not sure if shes married but i deem her credible based on the instant results im receiving! Ladies its a whole lot more to a relationship then waiting on him hand and foot. Keep your wits about you and never forget to stroke his ego mercilessly!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read both books and all I can say- I found them useful.
Jasmine Fletcher More than 1 year ago
This book definitely gives women a look for a different point of view. After being with a guy for 3 years and breaking up, I can definitely see the things I did to drive him away. HOWEVER I see a lot of things I should never have put up with to start. Very inspirational. I would definitely recommend it to single, engaged, and married woman alike.

I read both books and this book helped me get the ring. I keep it handy and refer back to certain pages ever now and again! Every woman should own at least one copy of each book!

I liked the flow of this book better, the only thing is that the book really focuses on the beginning of a relationship and getting it started right. That's all good and well, but a lot of people are already in relationships. It offers a lot of common sense, and sometimes that's all a person needs to be reminded of.

This is a book that gives tons of long-term lessons. Its motivational and will actually convince you to change the way you look at relationships. Its a great tool which teaches women how to regain power in order to get the great relationship they want and deserve.

This book offers a great perspective on male/female relationships. It really made me reexamine how I interact with the opposite sex.

My married friends, husband and I went through just the principles of this book after Thanksgiving dinner. It was truly an eye opener for all of us. Each person took something that could benefit them and enhance their marriage. It was good to hear the men speak up about their truths concerning us wives. It will open a greater level of communication. This will help anyone whether married or single wanting to get married.

I read "Why Men Love Bitches" years ago and it changed my life, and then later I benefited from "Why Men Marry Bitches". I didn't know how to stand up for myself in a relationship, which is why I always accepted a man¿s hurtful behavior and experienced failed relationships and a broken heart. Sherry's book opened my eyes to my faulty belief system, changed my attitude about myself and my relationship behavior and ultimately gained me confidence and self-respect that attracted men who would honor me as a woman. Not to mention it is an incredibly entertaining read!

I was THRILLED to receive an advance copy of this new book. It is out of this world. As an avid relationship-book reader, this one is far superior to anything I've ever picked up. Why Men Marry...explains why relationships stall within the first few months. Sherry interviews men and takes women through the steps of a relationship in the first year, showing women how to make a man become extremely attached. For example, when a woman says, 'Where is this going,' very early on, it signals to a guy that the woman is in love with the 'idea of having a relationship.' At that point he thinks her interest has nothing to do with him personally, so he views the relationship as temporary. Another thing I learned is how men phsychologically test women. It's a chapter called, 'Female Button Pushing: A Time-Honored Male Tradition.' I learned that some of the behaviours men do (like not calling, looking at another woman, etc.) are deliberate. He's looking for whether the woman will fall apart to see how much leverage he has over her emotionally. When I spoke with men about this, they admitted it as though it was common knowledge to men, and yet women have no idea they are being tested. So Bravo to Sherry Argov for giving women the power to discern what is really going on--and by empowering women with knowledge in a hilarious and uplifiting way. Read this book--it's not a book--it's a valuable growth experience.
