Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is about change! It proposes that a husband's primary goal needs to be to make his wife happy, and then it gives some very valuable instructions on how to make that goal a reality, using dating as the operative mechanism. In addition to focusing on improving a couple's interpersonal relationship, Stan gives very concrete suggestions for a wide variety of dating experiences.

This is a truly valuable book for you, whether you are a wife or a husband! Read it, sow the seeds it provides, nourish them, and then together with the one you love, harvest the rich rewards of marital happiness that it advocates for you. It can change your life!

From the Author

The words in this book are not mine. They are the words and thoughts of the wives I interviewed personally or the answers given on the questionnaires I collected from 1,000 wives in ten states. A husband will do well to read what these wives had to say and then discuss the book with his own wife. Communication is a good thing in marriage.

This guy knows what he is writing about! The book is non-judgmental, direct, easy to understand, simple to apply, and can have wonderful results. Basically, Mr. Conin tells husbands - who want to enrich their marriages - that women really want attention, affection, and consideration. He then proceeds to tell them, in a straightforward way, how to painlessly meet those needs - to the great benefit of the relationship and both individuals within it. Each chapter is introduced with a pertinent quotation by a well known writer, philosopher, etc. This adds a very nice touch. (I assume that kudos for this bit should go to the editor.)

I would say that there are a couple of minor areas of weakness that DO NOT mitigate the praise cited above. First, this is not a great work of literature; I would describe the format and language as serviceable and accessible. Next, many/most of the suggestions for things to do on a "date" include travel. If travel is not a pleasurable activity for you, you will need to extrapolate the concepts to more applicable pastimes. Finally, limited finances and childcare needs are often brushed aside here. If these areas are issues for you, you will need to translate the ideas into pursuits that accommodate your situation.

Highly recommended for couples who want to strengthen a marriage that is already on, at least, reasonably stable ground.

Format: Paperback
The author interviewed and surveyed over 1,000 wives to get his ideas for this book. Their input is obvious and the author did a great job at compiling their thoughts. This is a must buy for husbands or wives. Husbands need to do the things listed in this book and the relationships they have with their wives will improve. Good relationships will get even better. Poor relationships can sky rocket out of the doldrums. Wives need to buy it and after reading it, discuss it with their husbands. This book reveals all that a wife ever wanted in a husband. The ideas are so simple. Any husband that will use even a few of the ideas for weekly or daily dating habits will, as the author says, "Make Touchdowns and Home Runs" with his wife. The finish line for you NASCAR men is closer than you think. This book shows that any husband can be Prince Charming with very little effort. Every wife can be Cinderella. Great marriages exist, they are not fairy tales! Where has this book been all my married life?

I am 50 years old and never thought much about dating my husband. I do now. My husband is always trying out new ideas from the book. We are having the best time of our married life. This book will make a tremendous difference in your marriage. I sent a copy of the book to my mother (over 70 years old, sorry mom) and she said it instantly made a difference in her husband. He made the bed the first day after starting to read the book.

Format: Paperback
After a few years of marriage I had run out of ideas to try and make things fresh and exciting between me and my wife. I got this book and WOW ... there are hundreds of ideas to keep me going for a long time. I am even combining some ideas and that works great too. I also learned much more about my wife than she had never revealed. When I asked her about some of the things that other wives had spoken of in this book she admitted that some of those things had been on her mind for a while but she didn't know how to talk to me about them without hurting my feelings or making me angry. Thank you Mr. Cronin for helping me. If you are a husband, get this and skim through it. Don't tell your wife you have it and try some of the ideas and see what she says about the new you. If you are a wife. get this for your husband or have someone else give it to him as a gift. Hopefully he will open it and make both of you happier.

I can't say enough about this book. The ideas are varied and many. The thoughts of the wives are along the same lines as mine. The author has done a fantastic job of bringing all this together in one place. Every married couple should have a copy of this book and read it. My marriage is better because of this book.

As my marriage was ending (we'd grown apart) I started asking myself about what I wanted the next time and how could I possibly be a better spouse; enter my friend Janet and her recommendation of How to Date Your Wife. This is an interesting that's nicely crafted. Rather than being a the cut-and-dry working of a psychologist or couples councilor Mr. Cronin brings a unique look and advise to men on how to improve their relationship with their "wife" (while the book is focus on dating your wife, it can really be applied to your significant other and women, you can do this to your "husband" too), that of having interviewed wives and hearing their desires and merging that with his concepts on "dating". Something interesting about Mr. Cronin's concept on "dating" is that dating can be as complex as taking you "wife" out on formal dates to taking time to do little things for her (taking time for her, involving her in your activities, doing one of hers, or taking an afternoon off to be with her or opening a door for her).

This book is a fun and refreshing look at how to be with your significant other and improve your chances of having a happy relationship. I believe from maximum return you need to merge this book with the The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts to improve your communications with your significant other. Rating wise, I'm calling it 4.5 stars but I'm rounding up to 5 because Mr. Cronin did a great job conveying his idea and providing tools or means that a man (or a woman) can use to improve their relationship.
