Marriage 101 for Men: Why Taking out The Trash is a Turn On
by Sherri Mills

Get out of the doghouse and back into the bedroom simply by swapping the TV remote for the toilet brush! Whether you’ve been married for three months or thirty years, failing to help around the house remains a major cause of discord. Following this book’s principles, a husband learns to decrease disputes and increase intimacy by:

* owning his share of household work 
* listening to his wife’s needs and 
* communicating his own spending the time on chores now to make more time for love later. 

Using Marriage 101 for Men as a guide, you’ll be able to understand, alleviate, and ultimately eliminate the symptoms of stress in your relationship and be happier and more satisfied with all aspects of your marriage. 

My Review:
I haven't yet read Sherri's first book (I almost divorced my husband, but I went on Strike Instead) but I am very familiar with her story of going on strike for eight days. Not only am I familiar with the story, I cheer Sherri for taking a stand. After the success of that book, she wrote this book for the men.

I love the title - it is what first caught my attention and made me want to read it myself.  Marriage 101 for Men is really easy to read, which is great for men who don't particularly like to read. It is full of fun truths about how men and women relate to each other,communicate (or not), and how we can make our marriages better by understanding why we as women appreciate a scrubbed toilet more than a dozen roses.

Sherry mentions both Stay At Home Moms and Working Moms in regards to working out our issues with our husbands' expectations.  Many men do not realize just how much "work" there really is in managing home, children, work, and so much more each day.  Although this book is written for the Men, I highly recommend each woman read it as well.  I really enjoyed reading this book and even asked my husband to read it and tell me his thoughts on it.  He agrees with some of what Sherri has to say but not all of it (of course).  He and I discussed coming up with our own version of a work/chore list for each member of our family and plan to implement it before school resumes in August.

Now a message for the Men:  If you want your wife to be "in the mood" more often, try asking her what you can do to help her around the house or with the kids each day - then DO IT!  You could even try going out on your own to "offer" to clean bathrooms, kitchen, take care of family dinner, or kids' bedtime and see how she reacts! For more great ideas, try reading this book. There are many great tips in here (not just taking out the trash).  You might be surprised how delighted she will be with a little of your time and assistance - let her know how important she is to you, and to your kids!


About the Author:
Sherri Mills has been a hairdresser for over forty-five years. She has had her own salon long enough to see life happen before her very eyes. She has listened to real-life problems and followed real-life outcomes—successes and failures—and through several generations, longer and more extensively than marriage counselors can.


In her practice she has seen the pain from too many divorces that didn’t have to happen. She has been obsessed with trying to save as many marriages as she can.

Sherri’s first book, I Almost Divorced my Husband, but I Went on Strike Instead, was written to women, with detailed instructions on how to deal with the double duty and double standard of householder work and instructions on how have more appreciation for their own husbands.


Men wanted instructions of their own so Sherri outlined in Marriage 101: Why taking out the trash is a turn-on real solutions to issues that sabotage marital accord.
