The reviewers who call her an angry anti-feminist either haven't read the book or are freighted down with a terrible load of baggage. As my Ivy League wife will tell you, most of the anger is on the feminst side of the divide.
Venker is a gifted writer. "How to Choose a Husband" is lively and engaging but very serious.
Parents of girls ought to read this book--particularly fathers, since we are often unaware of the life-wrecking foolishness that is in the air our daughters breathe. Then read "On the Meaning of Sex" by J. Budziszewski. Those two books say it all.
I was very attracted to this book and what it had to offer because as a women in her early 30's who is an entrepreneur and travels around the world for a living, I have found that even with that success I personally had a yearning for something I couldn't quite figure out. I grew up with two professional parents and I have varieties of friends around me who defy convention and what it means to be a family, dare I say women who are the high earners of their family while the men have sometimes stayed at home to be house husbands. Or marriages where one has stayed at home and then then other for a time seemingly interchangeable. But one thing stood out, TEAM WORK & LOVE! I am looking for a team player someone to cheer me on and encourage me to be my best, whether as a career minded women or a fantastic mother or BOTH!!!
I recently came back from London where I hung out with a very successful friend of mine who has been happily married and childless for the last 8 years. (and they are adamant about not having children witch I wholeheartedly respect). My friend commented to me that statistically in the UK successful women are more then double the time to suffer from domestic violence from their male partner. I had to stop and look at her as I know she thinks of me as quite the strong assertive women, and raised to be that way no less, and I didn't say it but I later thought, I don't think one is a success if they are being beaten by a man that is supposedly meant to love them.Read more ›
I used to be a militant feminist. I used to be very lonely. I used to be at war with my body. I wanted to be a mother desperately, but much less so a wife. I felt so much pressure from society to do well in my career, but nobody ever taught me or told me the truth about my body, my fertility. Even my mother expected me to focus on my career and my career alone- nevermind how to attract a good man, nevermind how to be a good mother, nevermind how to accomplish those things that I really wanted in life: a family.
What's wrong with masculinity these days is that we aren't teaching men to be good men, and we're not demanding that they be good men. "How to Choose a Husband" is incredibly helpful, I wish I had had it 8 years ago. Good men are vital to the health of our children. Good men are vital to the health of women. Let's start rewarding good men more.
The only way to end misogyny is to end misandry.
Like Venker, I have learned to invite the spirit of masculinity into my life, respect the good things it brings like technology, focus, problem-solving, and protection.. and my life is soo much better because of it.
Congratulations to the woman who buys and reads this book on the journey to a strong marriage, happy family and kids.
Suzanne Venker's bold new book, "How to Choose a Husband and Make Peace with Marriage", dispels the myth that women are better off without men. In spite of the title, this book is not a guidebook in finding a spouse. It's not going to show you where to go find a man who will put a ring on your finger. The purpose of Venker's book is to change the way you think about marriage because you can't find the right person if you can't be the right person.
If you are a young, single female and you've fallen for the lie that feminism has perpetuated, then reading this book will either offend you or change you. You will either walk away with your heels firmly dug in or you will decide that maybe waiting until your 30s or 40s to get married may not be such a good idea.
If you are older and have been married for awhile, you may still hold some feminist attitudes that have affected your marriage in a detrimental way. By following the 12-step plan Venker lays out in her book, you may find a happier marriage waiting for you.

Terrible book! Basically says that a woman can't be herself if she wants to be happily married. Don't buy this unless you're a Stepford Wife or aspire to be one.Published 7 months ago by Amberle Ancelet
