Format: Hardcover
What's the etiquette for sex, dividing the chores, snoring, where to go for the holidays, sleeping on the couch, getting along with the spouse's friends?

The author reminds us that actions, appearance and words greatly affect our relationships. The recommendations he makes may seem at times to be obvious, but too often couples forget to base their own actions on "consideration, respect and honesty." He lists "Etiquette Imperatives" that cover the not-to-be-ignored basics for couples.

Peter Post is the great-grandson of Emily Post and he wrote Essential Manners for Men plus monthly etiquette columns.

The reviews have been quite favorable:

*"Thorough...straightforward....Resolving those hot-button issues...may well prevent a public flame-out." (New York Times)

*"stresses handholding and communication." (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

*"Most of us could stand to be reminded once in a while to be nice to each other." (Chicago Sun-Times)

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Heather Schaefer on July 5, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book does a good job of addressing common marital (or co-habitation) problems in an objective way. It's a good reminder of how to fight fair and to think of things from your partner's perspective, something that often gets lost in the heat of battle. It doesn't really tell you anything you don't already know (or should know), but if you can remember some of the points and try to implement them regularly so that they become second-nature, it can make those annoying habits of others -- and yourself! -- more bearable. If you've tried to convince your partner that manners are important even (or especially) when it's just the two of you, reading excerpts of this book to him or her may help. It's very balanced, as far as the male vs. female perspective goes, and doesn't approach conflict as if one sex is always right. That objectivity improves its credibility.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We used to use good manners; but, it seems through time this art is being lost. When I came across this book I bought it and am not disappointed becasue it is very helpful, especially to enlighten your spouse in a way that won't offend. After all, my point is to make better relationship not build a wall between us. If you feel this way you will enjoy reading this book of today's good manners. While I may not agree with everything exactly because I still believe in many of the good old fashioned manners, this book offeres some etiquette that I hadn't been exposed to; like, snoring! and fighting fair...I think anyone interested in improving his/her manners or learning about what good manners even are today, this is a very good book. It even covers the 'art of listening' which too many don't do now-a-days. I recomend this book. :-)

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mariah & Byron Edgington on January 12, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Take a look at what we believe is an essential book about being 'coupled', which relates directly to the idea of caffection. Grandson of Emily Post (yes, that Emily Post), Peter Post has compiled Essential Manners for Couples. This is sensible, comprehensive advice on everything 'From Snoring and Sex to Finances and Fighting...' as the jacket says. Useful advice inside covers a surprising range of common and not so common situations, like signals we send, interaction with other couples, our actions in public, work (which the author labels, trenchantly the 'other significant other'), such things as sex when the kids are in the house, and having houseguests. Underlying all the advice is the simple rule of good etiquette. In this book, that rule outlines how etiquette applies to happy couples, and can be a terrific guide to calmer, stronger marriage. Our only disappointment in the book was its minimal attention to financial patterns in a marriage, money being number 1 or 2 on the list of marital stressors, particularly now. Perhaps that's another book. But for great advice on etiquette in happy coupledom, Peter Post's Essential Manners for COUPLES, ©2005 is 'essential' reading.
