After yet another celebrity divorce debacle, Maureen Dowd devoted her New York Times column to an unusual expert on marriage: seventy-nine-year-old Catholic priest Father Pat Connor, who has spent decades offering counsel to countless couples. The clear-eyed yet mischievous advice relayed in Dowd's column lit up the Internet, becoming the subject of numerous blog postings and e-mails. An appearance on the Today show charmed even more of the country. Now, in Whom Not to Marry, Father Connor shares all his wisdom, with myriad ways to weed out the bad seeds before saying "I do":
- Never marry a man who has no friends. This usually means that he will be incapable of the intimacy that marriage demands.
- Steer clear of someone whose life you can run, who never makes demands counter to yours. It's good to have a doormat in the home, but not if it's your husband.
- Take a good, unsentimental look at his family--you'll learn a lot about him and his attitude toward women. Kay made a monstrous mistake marrying Michael Corleone
- Don't marry a problem character thinking you will change him. People are the same after marriage as before, only more so.
An indispensable guide for those looking to realize a healthy and committed marriage, Whom Not to Marry is a timeless and timely book that speaks to the heart, mind, and soul of today's women.
