Product Description
You did the Rules-And They Worked! You captured the heart of your Mr. Right and are, at the very least, engaged. Maybe you're married ... or perhaps you and your partner got together without the help of The Rules. Now You're Looking for Ways to Keep Your Relationship Happy and Healthy. The Rules For Marriage is Here! In this new book, the authors of The Rules offer forty-two time-tested tips for keeping your marriage healthy and happy. Some will sound familiar, others are completely new. But they all lead to the same wonderful future-the one in which you and your husband stay together forever! Discover: * Rule #4: Keep up your own interests (have a life!) * Rule #15: Say what you mean, but don't say it mean * Rule #21: Don't force him to "talk" * Rule #35: Don't find fault with things you knew about when you married him So whatever your marital problems, The Rules for Marriage can help.Amazon.com Review
According to authors Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider, the rules of a happy marriage are often very different from the rules a single woman shouldfollow in order to get hitched in the first place. In their phenomenallysuccessful dating guide, The Rules, Fein and Schneider urged singlewomen to adopt a strategy of denial--don't call him, don't be too available, don't sleep with him early on. In marriage, however, it seems the rules havedrastically changed. He wants sex? Give it to him. He doesn't want to talk?So be it. He wants to go to the game and you don't? Shut up and go. AsSchneider stated in a promotional TV interview, "It's not about beingright--it's about what works."

If you operate on the premise that most of the emotional work in a marriageis the responsibility of the woman, and that any marriage is preferable tono marriage at all, then this book is for you. "The fact is, to be happilymarried, a woman sometimes needs to treat her husband like a client orcustomer whom they want to keep happy (let him be right)," the authorswrite. "You're probably thinking, 'Why can't it be equal?' Why doesn't hehave to do all the things you're suggesting, like 'Don't say the first meanword or make up first?' Our answer is because that is the way it is." Forwomen who work hard in demanding jobs and then come home to manage childrenand a household, learning that they should completely put aside their needs,yet "continue to be a creature like any other," will not only come as ashock, but as an insult as well.

To be fair, some of the 43 rules in the book are the kind of useful common sense that would benefit any partnership. Untold numbers of marriage expertshave been dishing out this kind of advice for years--say what you mean butdon't say it meanly, be supportive, and don't nag. Fortunately, if loweringyour expectations and letting your hubby win (Rules 5 and 9) don't work,the book also includes rules for divorce and second marriages. --MariannePainter ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars "Give him time alone when he comes home"
Maybe it's just me because I'm Asian American, but that 1 rule is very bad. Greeting your husband when he comes home is very important for my husband because it shows that he is appreciated and acknowledged. In Korea, to not greet your husband at the door with a bow and give him full attention is a very, very big dishonor. 'course, this is America, but regardless of culture, I think greeting your husband when he comes home is very key in showing appreciation.

If you have dogs, you know the happy feeling you get when you come home and your dogs greet you cheerfully. It feels nice.

I don't jump on my husband like a dog does, but I do hug him, give him a peck on the cheeks, take his bag and serve him a drink; then, I give him a massage occasionally while he's sitting on a chair explaining his day. Be practical. When I say massage, I mean very simple squeezes on the shoulders and neck. I'm not talking about romantic massages with oil or anything. I'm talking about the massages you give to old ladies that have muscle pain. What if he doesn't have any muscle aches? Well, I do it anyway. It's a way of showing that you appreciate what he does, regardless of whether he actually has muscle pain. Another way of showing appreciation is cooking him his favorite hot dinner waiting for him when he gets home from work.

By the way, you can read 1/2 of this book for free on Google Books (Preview).

5-0 out of 5 stars love it or hate it, it works!!!
This common sense advice can help many women.It showsa true perspective of how men view marriage and how women can use that to their advantage.As a feminist, this view when embraced empowers women.Love it or hate it, men are not women and this should be celebrated.This book teaches women to get what they want out of marriage.

5-0 out of 5 stars REAL MENlove Rules Girls!!!
I remember my Mother making a statement to me years ago, that I thought was RIDICULOUS! It was "Find a man that loves you more than you could ever LOVE HIM!" Crazy? right? NO!!! As an adult I figured out what she was trying to convey...We, as women have to learn how to love OURSELVES first, and that way, we will think too highly of ourselves, to accept "inferior" treatment by men. Thus...this is the premise for this book, as well as all the other "Rules" books. Women who VALUE themselves, and their time,set boundaries, and live by them, and either the man will accept them, or leave! I find this book, as well as the others, to be just basic, common sense! Trust me, I bought into the "It's the 90's" mantra men would throw at me, and call them, at their request, be too nice,too available, then scratch my head when I would see them happily start dating a women we all knew was "difficult". I do not now believe these ladies were difficult, rather they let the guy know straight up, they were not pushovers,and strangely,the guys seemed to LOVE it!!! I decided to start doing the Rules, as written, and met and married a teriffic guy, who treats me like I am a precious jewel, and you know what? I am....NO! We all are precious jewels girls!!!!! Why settle for less? I enjoyed this book, and have applied not all, but most of the Rules,and just celebrated 6 happy years of marriage....Remember......If you do not value and love YOURSELF, why should he?! It is up to the woman to set the standards....what we will and will not tolerate...and trust me....REAL MEN, WILL appreciate us for it!!! Oh,yes....Alot of gals I knew thought the Rules were foolish....Odd, these are the same ones who have not had a decent relationship in YEARS!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Are these Broads for Real?
As I read this book yesterday, all I could think was, are these women for real?
Is this some sort of satire or something? Some sort of let's make fun of the '50s and their quaint ideas spoof?
No, sadly they are for real, and all they are really doing is making me not want to get married ever, it's probably not their intention.
The advice in here is like a salad mixed with raw onions and beets. Every now and again they will throw in something to appeal to feminists who are desparate for men, but still want to be strong women. Things like keep your own interests, and don't bother him about tiles, go out and buy them yourself. But then they contradict themselves by saying, ask him before you get frilly curtains. They tell you to baby him when he has a cold, but if you are laying in bed from horrible cramps, you can't expect any sympathy from him.
They throw in useful gems like, don't nag him, seriously, who nags over toilet paper? If there isn't a roll up, who cares? Who bothers over such trivial stupid things?
They tell you to do things you don't want to do. How is that good advice? Why should I have to go to some wedding filled with people I don't know? Why should I have to force myself to do things I hate and don't want to when he doesn't have to do that?
Books like this and Men are from Mars Women are from Venus are destructive. They make it seem like men are IDIOTS and it's women's jobs to placate them. That's not a healthy relationship! They even go on to say don't bother with couple counceling, go to therapy yourself. Maybe it's you with the problem.
Dude, if you follow rules like this, you'll NEED therapy, anger management, because you'll be frustrated. If one person has to take care of the kids, work, then come home and serve a husband who is needy and demanding, who doesn't realize he's not a child, who demands sex when you're exausted, who doesn't even bother to communicate with you or show he cares enough about you to know what gifts you like, or that you are sore and swollen from pregnancy and need sympathy than they will get exausted, depressed and burned out!
Relationships should be about give and take, reciprocity, men and women both building each other up instead of propping up one person.
What happens when a couple has children? Will the man understand it's not about him then? Why the heck should you praise him for doing chores when he's not praising you? Give and take, all take and no give wears a person out!
Why should I take advice from a woman who separated from her husband in the first place? Surely I'd be better off listening to people who have been in healthy marriages for a long time where one person isn't elevated over the other creating a lot of problems in the future.

Product Description
Ellen is forty-six, divorced, and having no luck with personal ads when her Chinese girlfriend comes up with a plan: she has a brother in China, Zhong-hua, who’s lonely too. Maybe they’d like each other? Taking a leap of faith that most of us wouldn’t dare, Ellen travels to China to meet him. Though they speak only a few words of each other’s language, there’s an unspoken connection between them and they decide to marry.

What follows is a remarkably touching and humorous story of two people from completely different worlds trying to make a marriage work. Settling in at Ellen’s ramshackle farmhouse in upstate New York, they quickly discover the cultural chasm that lies between them. Ellen and her teenage daughter decide to adopt a policy of nonjudgment as Zhong-hua lobbies to sell their refrigerator (“Just three people, no need”), serves them giant sea slugs for dinner, and brusquely nudges Ellen aside without an “excuse me” (“Family no need these kind of words”). 

Zhong-hua is not the type to offer his wife impromptu smiles or hugs, but in bed at night he holds her tightly like she’s “something long lost and precious that might not live until morning.” The Natural Laws of Good Luck is an unusual and exquisitely written love story—one that will resonate with anyone who has ever contemplated with wonder the spaces that exist between us and those we care about. ...

The Art of Getting Well: Maximizing Health and Well-being When You Have a Chronic Illness
Ellen Graf has an amazing story to tell, and she tells it with grace.In her 40s, she married a man from China, a match arranged by her new sister-in-law, who told her "alone no good."When her husband Lu Zhong-hua comes to upstate New York, he has to fit into a new country, while Graf needs to fit into a new family.

The story of creating this new family and making a living as artists, laborers, and teachers takes entertaining and frightening turns.One challenge for Graf is connecting with her spoiled step-daughter. Another is coping with silence - she discovers that the Chinese concept of marriage doesn't include small talk, routine pleasantries, or even "hello" and "goodbye".Money is a constant worry. Will Zhong-hua, an experienced business manager, painter, and Tai Chi teacher in China, be able to work even a convenience store job in the U.S.?

Crises keep happening - a terrible illness, their house burning down.Somehow they make things work. Graf learns that, as her husband says, most people are good, and things will work out if you give them time.It's a message of hope.

The author writes about the natural world in her small town / rural area.We read lovely descriptions of birds, snakes, trees, and people, and how living with nature helps people heal.She also has a great sense of humor, which she clearly needed to get through the acculturation phase of her marriage.

We get to know the couple's relatives, neighbors, and associates. Several characters are so well drawn that you feel you are looking right at them.

Ellen and Zhong-hua are like some of the great couples of literature, and they're real people. They're not idealized or romanticized; you can see their weaknesses and quirks as well as their wonderful humanity and strength.This "memoir of an unlikely marriage" is an equally remarkable accomplishment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Laughed out loud in every chapter
I almost never write reviews and I'm a prolific reader, but this book has inspired me. First of all, its downright hilarious. The way Zhong-Hua says and does things is so funny and interesting at once, you can see why Ellen-ah puts up with some of the crazy things he does. I also admire her unwavering support. She has to deal with financial difficulties, serious illness, cultural differences, and she just makes the best of it. Reading how she takes it all in stride inspires me to be a better wife. Finally, Zhong-Hua's work ethic, ability to hustle and do whatever it takes to make money, no matter how menial the job is amazing. They are both amazing people and I hope she writes a sequel!

1-0 out of 5 stars A Big Disappointment
I am the type of person who finds a lot of things about life amusing.Sometimes I am the only person in a room laughing.So I was shocked when I discovered that contrary to the reviews I did not find one single thing about this book funny.

For the most part, I really enjoy enjoy learning about other people lives and experiences, especially from other cultures. So, The Natural Laws of Good Luck sounded like a wonderful book, but sadly it was not a book for me.

This book came across to me as being about two people who were more alike than unalike, people who never thought a single thing through, never looked before they leaped even from the highest cliff and got a lot of perverse pleasure out of doing every thing the hardest way possible and being delighted with slip shod results.I got very tired of them both blundering their way along and never leaning from their experiences.The most positive thing I can say for the book is that they were obviously made for each other.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love It!!
What a wonderful book!I am about half way through it right now and simply love the humor, cultural insight, and tender love story wrapped into one.It is one of the best books I have read in a while.It's also interesting since it's a memoir.I would definitley recommend this book!!Cant wait to see whats next in the book. ...

Product Description

For twenty years, Ellen Greene kept a running list of the thoughtful, funny, touching things that her husband, Marsh, said and did. She wrote them down secretly, then shared those thoughts with him every Valentine's Day when he would find pages from her "Sweet Things List" tucked inside a card.

Married and divorced at a young age, Greene raised two small children alone. After another failed relationship in her late thirties, she swore she'd never again subject herself or her kids to men who treated them poorly. Then she met Marsh Greene.

In this beautiful tribute to a man and a marriage, Greene intersperses selections from her "Sweet Things List" with recollections from their years together. Written with grace and candor, Remember the Sweet Things captures the kindness, sharing, humor, and affection that defined the Greenes' marriage, and encourages us to acknowledge the goodness in our own lives and relationships.

5-0 out of 5 stars How to accept and improve arelationship
A very different view of recording and nurturing a relationship.

Adventurous life we may think about, but few of us have the nerve and discipline to do.

Life is full of happiness and tragedy.

In midlife there is still hope for romance and fun.

Diverse culture can be divisive and bonding.

Transparent look into bonding romance and the challenges.

Adventure is around the corner if you let it take into its arms.

5-0 out of 5 stars An incredible story written incredibly well
Once I started Ellen's book I could not put it down.I've raved
about it to friends and family only to discover they had already
read it and loved it as I did.Not only is the book a good read
but there is much to learn from it about having a healthy loving
relationship.

Thanks Ellen.

5-0 out of 5 stars ... just a really sweet story
Hallmark magazine first hilighted her story after family and friends heard her tribute to her husband. It's a warm story of two professionals who had an admiration for each other and fell in love. He was carasmatic and vivacious, she was willing and adventerous. They married and together co-parented her two boys. Their life took them on travels and adventures with an interesting turn of events. Ellen's love lists were a grounding and beautiful tradition that will always be part of their legacy. I found the book on Amazon becase of the tags of their time in Mexico. I read the book in two evenings. It was an easy, breezy read.. a happy, sad, feel good story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Valid advice to keep any marriage precious, just in remembering "the sweet things" . . .
Remember The Sweet Things may take you back, perhaps to your younger years when, if you were anything like I was fresh in the dating world, kept a diary and wrote notes to myself, things I wanted to record to memory. Times spent with that special person. What movie we went to. Where we went out to eat. How he bought me a lovely rose at the floral kiosk at the mall. Little things that I could read again and again, just carry me through the times when I could not be with him.

In Ellen Greene's Remember The Sweet Things, she revisits that age-old ritual, chronicling tender moments, actions and words her husband Marsh did for her in their years of marriage. This book reads like a tender heartfelt love story.

After a failed marriage, subsequent bad choices in men and moving her two children all over the United States, Ellen finds herself starting over again and she is determined to build a stable nurturing environment for herself and her kids. Enter Marsh Greene, fifty-something to her thirty-something, with Paul Newman-like good looks, interviewing her for a job. After fighting the electric undercurrent that was obvious to them both, and working together for a few years, Ellen quit her job and Marsh promptly asked her out, beginning his courtship and the eventual path to marriage.

Lovingly written, this book reminds us to Remember The Sweet Things. Ellen began to log kindhearted gentle niceties Marsh did for her through their courting days, marriage and their life-long love affair. She started a tradition in listing these "sweet things" and tucking a list into her yearly Valentine's Day card to Marsh, a loving way to show her appreciation and gratitude for all the little things Marsh would do for her.

I was quickly caught up in the romance of this book, eager to read as Ellen and Marsh fell in love; this wonderful tribute to the ups and downs, challenges and trials, joys and sorrows, through thick and thin. This book will have you smiling, perhaps thinking how you too can take the time to commit to memory some of those "sweet things" that make up a loving life together with that special someone.

Ellen even outlines at the end of the book some suggestions on doing just that--starting your own list of "the sweet things." If we take the time to pay attention to all the goodness in our lives and relationships, we often find that the greatest joys are in the smallest things.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, a true home reference book
This book is fantastic.It provides guidance on just about everyhome/housekeeping problem, from how to fold a fitted sheet to how to removesmoke odors from a room to how to restore wood furniture and paint a room. It makes practical recommendations (like purchasing cleaning products froma janitorial supply company) and is very easy to read.I recentlypurchased another housekeeping reference book, Home Comforts, and wasdisappointed because, in my opinion, there was no way I could meet all theexpectations discussed in the book for keeping my house clean.MaryEllen's book, on the other hand, is very realistic and makes suggestionsthat anyone can accomplish --how to maintain your house without constantlydoing housework.It even has a whole chapter of recommendations on how toquickly prepare your home to sell it.I plan to send this book to peopleas a housewarming present.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book everyone needs!
This is truly an encyclopedic collection of housekeeping hints.Mary Ellen Pinkham has done her research.If you love to read, then most likely you don't want to spend hours just cleaning your home.Once you learn someof her quick and easy solutions to everyday problems, you will have moretime to spend on yourself.

While I use just a few basic cleaners, youwill find oodles of specific cleaning hints and tips.You will also bewarned not to mix chlorine cleaning products with baking soda. I wassurprised to find information on refinishing furniture, saving time, savingenergy and saving money.Those are things we could all learn whether welike to clean or not.

I would recommend this for a new bride, for yourown reference library, or as a gift for your friends who are interested inhaving all the answers to their questions in one convenient book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Engaged to a truckerdriver and gave me some insight!
I am really not a book reader, but this one caught my eye. I am engaged to an over the road truck driver and when I see the 20 tail lights out the driveway I am left with 3 Shar Pei dogs, a house to keep organized, bills to tend to, laundy, dishes and a full time out of home job. You ladies know what I am going though. I found myself reading more and more of the articles laughing at some of the insert, because they are so true! This truely is an awesome book that will get you thinking about different things in the relationship. Also it kinda gives me a taste to what to expect in the future.

1-0 out of 5 stars good examples, superficial and bad advice

I have specialized in providing professional education and therapy to typical stepfamilies since 1981. I am (a) a stepfamily researcher since 1979, (b) a stepgrandson, stepson, ex-stepfather, and stepbrother, and (c) an invited Board member of the Stepfamily Association of America.

Though 'The Second Time Around' offers useful examples of real stepfamily problems, I do not recommend it to anyone considering stepfamily re/marriage or already re/wed. (The '/' notes it may be one partner's first union.)

Neither the step-people interviewed for the book nor the author seem to understand the key points outlined below.

This well-written, well-illustrated book is peppered with vague and occasionally harmful suggestions for co-parents - e.g. '...people need to know how to communicate;' (p.65); '...be prepared to display thepatience of Job' (p. 68); '...you must modify your outward behavior.' (p. 200); '...put your own needs second, and consider those of the
children first'(p. 206). The author doesn't explore why most co-parents would agree with much of their advice, and be unable to follow it effectively because of five core hazards that typical U.S. stepfamilies face:

1) significant (unseen) psychological wounds in co-parents (including ex mates) and some kids. The author briefly acknowledge these' but offers no practical ideas about assessing or reducing them.

2) unawareness of blocked grief in some adults and kids, and what to do about it,

3) personal unawareness and adult ignorance of (a) inner-wound healing, (b) high-nurturance families and relationships, (c) healthy three-level grief, (d) effective communication skills, and (e) stepfamily identity, and what it *means*;

4) needy, love-struck partners choosing the wrong people to re/wed, for the wrong reasons, at the wrong time. The authors do acknowledge this, but offer only superficial suggestions for avoiding it; and...

5) little informed, effective stepfamily help available in most
communities and the media.

Editorial Review

Product Description
Dissolution is a new word for divorce.In Dissolution, Riane Eisler discusses the fundamental societal and litigious changes of divorce from an action that was until recently an unacceptable social phenomenon to what is now commonplace.The book compares the old divorce laws based on marital fault with new "no-fault" divorce laws, an analysis of the laws and institutions of marriage and divorce, and alternatives (social and litigious) to marriage and divorce.Quotes about Dissolution:

"Dissolution is must reading for every woman...whether she already believes in equal rights for all beings or belongs to the Phyllis Schlafly school of thought. Riane Eisler's work is the most definitive yet on the female species and her rights."

– Rona Barrett, Good Morning America, ABC-TV

"Only those of us who have gone through divorce without your book can fully appreciate its value. Its factual information gives strength. Its innate empathy comforts. Its totality is an integral part of the body of great feminist writings."

– Frances Lear, President, Lear Purvis Walker & Co. ... Read more

Product Description
The third, and briefest, part of a trilogy called The History of the Thirteen, The Girl with the Golden Eyes is one piece of the vast tableaux of Balzac's Human Comedy. The "Thirteen" are a secret society. The Girl with the Golden Eyes contains some of Balzac's most intense observations of 19th Century Parisian society. It tells the story of a beautiful young woman seduced by a servant of "The Thirteen." The other two parts of The History of the Thirteen may also be of interest: Ferragus, and The Duchesse de Langeais. Each contains Balzac's sharp-eyed observations of human frailty and love. ...

Product Description
At Paris there are almost always two separate parties going on at every ball and rout. First, an official party, composed of the persons invited, a fashionable and much-bored circle. Each one grimaces for his neighbor's eye; most of the younger women are there for one person only; when each woman has assured herself that for that one she is the handsomest woman in the room, and that the opinion is perhaps shared by a few others, a few insignificant phrases are exchanged, as: "Do you think of going away soon to La Crampade?" "How well Madame de Portenduere sang!" "Who is that little woman with such a load of diamonds?" Or, after firing off some smart epigrams, which give transient pleasure, and leave wounds that rankle long, the groups thin out, the mere lookers on go away, and the waxlights burn down to the sconces.

Product Description
Book II of Balzac's 'The Thirteen"

"Considering the Histoire des Treize as a whole, it is of engrossing interest. And I must confess I should not think much of any boy who, beginning Balzac with this series, failed to go rather mad over it. I know there was a time when I used to like it best of all, and thought not merely Eugenie Grandet, but Le Pere Goriot (though not the Peau de Chagrin), dull in comparison. Some attention, however, must be paid to two remarkable characters, on whom it is quite clear that Balzac expended a great deal of pains, and one of whom he seems to have 'caressed,' as the French say, with a curious admixture of dislike and admiration. . . ."

Editorial Review

Product Description
This exclamation was made by a lawyer's clerk of the class called in French offices a gutter-jumper--a messenger in fact--who at this moment was eating a piece of dry bread with a hearty appetite. He pulled off a morsel of crumb to make into a bullet, and fired it gleefully through the open pane of the window against which he was leaning. The pellet, well aimed, rebounded almost as high as the window, after hitting the hat of a stranger who was crossing the courtyard of a house in the Rue Vivienne, where dwelt Maitre Derville, attorney-at-law.
