About The Book

How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched) is a 12-step program that liberates women from the lies they’ve absorbed about men and marriage and offers a new, foolproof roadmap for navigating life and love.

Degree? Check.
Career? Yup.
Money? In the bank.

America is single. It's divorced, under committed, and hopelessly out of touch with how to build a relationship that lasts. Women, in particular, are groomed for a life centered on career and on being fiercely independent--as though marriage and family were a nice idea, or a possible accompaniment, to an otherwise satisfying life.

But if flying solo is so great, why are online dating sites a billion-dollar industry, replete with clients looking to get hitched?

In How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched), author and marriage coach Suzanne Venker claims women need a detox from the bogus cultural narratives they've absorbed about men, sex, marriage, work and family. If you're a woman who wants a successful love life (not just a successful professional life), you're going to need a brand new roadmap. And now you have one.

Here is just a sampling of the 12 steps:

- Get over yourself
- Find your feminine
- Get a ring, not a roommate
- Marry the accountant, not the artist
- Know your body

A call to arms, How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched) will ignite a much-needed debate about the misplaced priorities of the modern generation. It is the antidote women need to reject the lies they've been fed by our culture so they can build the happy, balanced lives they crave.

"You have massively impacted the way I see and deal with men. Because of you, I started dating with a clear goal in mind (marriage and children) and also with discipline. At 25, this led me to my now boyfriend who soon will be my fiancé, husband, and hopefully father of my children. Thank you from the bottom of my soul for the enlightening and truthful work that you share with the world!"

"The world and my own mother haven't spoken to me about any of this. Schools and the media taught me that career comes first and that I would be happy even without getting married and not having children. I thought what I was feeling wasn't quite normal until I found your work. Thank you sooo much, Suzanne!" - Lily from Australia

"I love sharing Suzanne with jaded lonely girlfriends, lol." - Annie
