I am absolutely baffled by all the wonderful reviews for this book. I was excited to read it after hearing so much praise and was very, very disappointed. It really wasn't funny to me at all. I guess if you find humor in making fun of people in a mean spirited way (ugly baby, toothless commissary bagger), fart jokes and constant talk about IBS, this book will is a hoot. I have a spouse in the military and I hope that people don't think we are all that way. The author constantly contradicts herself. She prides herself on giving 'toys' to the other wifes but freaks out in the Hustler store. She talks about how awful "rankism" is yet she makes sure you know she is an officer's wife and constantly talks about the rank of her neighbors. Heaven forbid a guy hits on her. She will put him in his place because she is an "officer's wife". I get it. Basically, I found the book to be self centered and immature. I also don't think that a lot of her advice was very useful. Honestly, this is 2011, not the 1940's. Some military spouses stay at home but a lot of us work. We don't need to hear about how we need hobbies to keep us busy. Work, kids and being single parents while spouses are deployed (sometimes for a year or longer) is quite enough. I wish there were more books talking about how spouses can deal with the dilemma of balancing frequent PCSs and maintaining our professional careers...how to be independent while being the dependent spouse. Maybe I just haven't "accepted being a military housewife" as she encourages others to do. I find that there is a lot of humor in the miltary lifestyle. I just don't think she did a good job of writing about it.

I found Mollie Gross though milspouse mag, and loved her articles, then when her book came out I opted to review it for the radio show I cohost. I can say that I finally found a wife who doesn't talk about living on the p's and q's but really lays it all out. I feel like I am hearing the words of my best friend in our most bizarre moments. Mollie strikes a nerve with every branch, with ever rate and rank. Confessions is the book every wife needs when life seems chaotic for that great pick me up! Mollie doesn't mess around, there is no worry about what is expected, and you are free to accept what is! An awesome book for any mil spouse looking for some fun reading!!

Every woman that enters into a relationship with a man in the military needs to read this book. It should be issued to every military wife. It is absolutely hilarous, but also gives good solid advice. It puts a positive spin on a sometimes difficult lifestyle.

Knowing nothing of a military lifestyle, Mollie tells the story of being a military wife in her early twenties. I love this book because she takes the comedy approach in telling her story. Not only is it laugh out loud funny, it's smart and real. Mollie is a master at taking the everyday serious situations of the military and using her humor to best tell the story. This would be a great book to read if you are in the military or if you just want to laugh out loud.

I found the book to be silly and written at the level of a middle school student. I felt like I was reading "embarrassing moments" out of a Seventeen magazine most of the time; not the life experience of an officer's wife. Wish I could get my money back.

I have never written a review before, but had to, because this book was possibly the worst book I have ever read.

I really was hoping to like this book but I couldn't finish it. The author doesn't like to be bad mouthed about being a military wife but has no problem insulting a midget, overweight people, old people and women whom she deems beneath her. The authors sense of humor is that of a 16 year old who hasn't gotten over her own gas. I loathe this book.

I am a military spouse new to the military and wanted to read a book that would give me insight into military life. This is not that book. This book honestly seemed written by a fifteen year old. It approached the topic in such an immature way that I could not relate at all. It also is very contradictory as others have stated. The author speaks about rankism as something bad, but mentions her husband's rank at every opportunity. It is also very pollyannaish. Having parties constantly does not actually fix any of the challenges or problems that the author or other military spouses faced. I wish she would have been more real and actually shared the good and bad and not tried to pretend it'a all solved by having fun parties each week. I also felt like it was written in 1950. Just the reasoning and discussions are so stereotypical "little wife at home". Military spouses are so much more than that and aspire to be so much more. The attitude shown in the book sets us back fifty+ years. Some may say it was written to be comedic, which is fine if it were funny...it's just not.
