Editorial Reviews

Review

"Once I started this book I found myself not wanting to stop.  Happy Wives Club reassures us that marriages do and can work."  -Misty May-Treanor, 3x Olympic Gold Medalist                          "Get ready for a global adventure -literally- where you will visit modern-day marvels of marriage done right. Fawn Weaver, your personal travel guide, is a master storyteller and pathfinder." -Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott, #1 New York Times best-selling authors, Making Happy

"Let this stunning and captivating writer take you on a journey - an exploration around the world that ends up at a place far too few women have the sense enough to reach...a place called 'Happy'." -Priscilla Shirer, New York Times best-selling author, The Resolution For Women

"Poking through the mud of a media culture rife with exploitative images of desperate housewives, Fawn Weaver's Happy Wives Club is a wildflower spreading hope for the institution of marriage, not as a religious or political institution, but as the opportunity for two souls to evolve...  This book is, first and foremost, a love story."  -Lissa Rankin, MD, New York Times best-selling author, Mind Over Medicine

"The beauty of this book lies in its simplicity, humility, and a style of storytelling that makes you sad the book is coming to an end. If there were ever a case made for "happily ever after", it's the Happy Wives Club." -Kristine Carlson, New York Times best-selling author, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff in Love

"Fawn Weaver had me at marriage advocate.  Anytime someone is in search of the goods and then shares them with her fellow brothers and sisters, I'm a fan." -Gabrielle Reece, Supermodel, Fitness Expert and New York Times Best-selling author

From the Author

Whether you're single and one day hoping to be married, engaged, newlyweds or married for some time, this book has something in it for you.
Allow me to take you to the places I've been, see the things I've seen, and to prove -once and for all- that love and marriage do, and always will, go hand-in-hand.  Rest assured, this isn't another how-to book.  You can curl up with it at night, join me on this great adventure around the world, while learning what I learned about what it takes to create a lifelong -and happy- marriage.

I bought this book because, after 41 years of marriage, I love the idea of hearing from other couples about their successful marriages. One never stops learning in marriage and we can certainly learn from each other's experienes. However, I found myself skipping whole sections that just went on and on about where the author walked, and what she ate, and how supportive her husband is again and again. I was expecting each chapter to be a story of a different interview. No so. I was disappointed. I would have given it two stars, but I think the idea of the book is excellent, the intention was good, but the execution leaves something to be desired. Still, I'm all for happy marriages! :)

In exchange for my honest review, BookLook Bloggers sent me a complimentary copy of Happy Wives Club by Fawn Weaver.

What is it all about?

I had read rave reviews about author Fawn Weaver’s popular blog, HappyWivesClub.com, which I checked out myself and signed up to receive updates. I had high hopes when I initially sat down to begin reading her book.

Fawn, a self-professed happy wife, had grown tired of hearing and seeing negative aspects about marriage all around her. On a whim, she decides to prove that good marriages exist in abundance and started an online Happy Wives Club. It was very well-received and led to the author’s real-life journey–to 12 countries on 6 continents–to interview couples about their marriages and what makes them great. The result was a New York Times Bestseller and an increase in the Happy Wives Club membership to over 600,000 members and counting from over 110 countries.

My honest opinion

I had a difficult time relating to the stories and accounts in this book. As I read the exchanges from those that were interviewed about their happy marriages, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. I kept searching for a wife or a couple that reminded me of myself or my marriage. There were not any. All of the couples, including the author and her husband, expressed that their marriages were happy because they didn’t let negative things or people in, they were mirror images of each other, something life-altering had occurred to make it that way, or they never argued. Huh?

I think a happy wife and a happy marriage can exist, does exist, for many people. I don’t believe there is a specific formula or method to it. Certainly not the ones told by those interviewed.

Fawn Weaver shares the story of her mission to find the secrets to a great marriage. She traveled to twelve countries scattered across six continents to interview couples who are happy in their marriages. Weaver passes on the tales of her travels and the stories behind each couple, as well as their thoughts on what makes a marriage work. She found several common threads that many of the couples identified as the more important characteristics of a successful marriage such as respect, trust, belief in God, laughter, a daily ritual of connection, friendship, and taking divorce out of the equation.

This is a great book! Not only is it a book about happy marriages, but it also gives readers a glimpse into the different cultures that Weaver experiences on her travels. I think the idea behind the book is awesome; because happy, successful marriages are not only possible, they are happening all over the world.

Throughout the book, Weaver and the couples she interviewed admitted that happy marriages don't happen naturally, they take work and commitment. One couple in particular identified our disposable mindset as a society transferring into viewing marriage as a disposable endeavor. However, a happy, satisfying marriage is possible.

I think this book is great for newlyweds and couples who are overall happy in their marriage. However, I think it might not be the best book for women to read who are struggling in their marriage. This is only because it is not always helpful to read about how great marriage is when your marriage is less than happy. Furthermore, there are some biblical reasons that support divorce under certain circumstances. Aside from those couple negatives, I think this is a great book that is a wonderful resource for couples.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

I really wanted to like this book. I really did. But I found myself extremely bored with her over-descriptive style of writing. I found myself saying "who cares" throughout a majority of the book. I just didn't care if her ankle hurt from walking several miles or if she pulled out her souvenir umbrella because it was raining. I'm flabbergasted that this book has been rated so highly. Maybe I'm missing something.

I loved the premise, and was hoping to glean some wisdom from long-time, happily married couples. Yet, I didn't take anything away that would be helpful in my own marriage. I grew tired of her sappy perspective and rolled my eyes through most of the book. Talking about how you 'miss your hubby so much' doesn't tell anyone anything about how to resolve difference, make compromises, or pretty much anything that could be construed as helpful for the wives out there, happy or otherwise. And for the record, I am a happy wife.
