This is another book that is not one of my usual genres. Non-fiction is something I tend to reserve for Non-Fiction November. But I received a free digital copy of this in exchange for an honest review, so here is my honest review.
Overall, this was a "meh" kind of book for me. I got some laughs out of it. I appreciated Dowling's chapter on feminism. But for the most part I just couldn't relate. I've been married for almost 2 years now so I may be in the "Honeymoon Phase" still, but my own marriage is so different from his a lot of the book was un-relatable. Perhaps after another 18 years of marriage I will find this book more enjoyable. Dowling is correct in saying that after 20 years of marriage, you are not the same person you were and your spouse is not the same person they were.
But I did get some laughs and a few good lines out of this. I also got a couple of warnings about things I should not do if I want my marriage to last. Overall, I give this 3 hoots.
