Suzanne and her husband live in St. Louis, MO, with their two school-age children.

She would have you believe that feminism is such a horribly negative thing that harms society.

I liked this book because of the information that it has to show how women have changed and how much influence it makes to everyone.

Format: Hardcover
This is an exceptionally wise book. I am not part of the target audience (I'm a man who has been married for 25+ years), but my daughters are, and I want them to read it. There is much about marriage that you simply can't understand until you've been married for a number of years, and young readers should take Suzanne Venker's word for a few things. If you do, you'll save yourself some heartache.

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.

Feminism changed the way women felt about marriage. Women started putting off marriage. They believed the lie that women were better off relying on themselves and not depending on men. The problem is that women discover, often too late, that being single isn't all it's cracked up to be.

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.

I have enjoyed reading this as my eye caught the title of picking a husband or how to..I have gotten some insights into what really a woman should be looking for in a man.

Venker is right.

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.

I liked this book because of the information that it has to show how women have changed and how much influence it makes to everyone. I am not a feminist, not even close but I bought the book because I wanted to see the information. It really is an eye opener. I don't think I would recommend it to someone who is going to choose a husband but to someone who wants to become a better woman so that she could be a good wife. It did open my eyes to how feminist most of my family is. it is a great read. i couldn't put it down because it was so interesting.

Thank goodness this book came out so I no longer have to be confused! I was having a really difficult time being an independent twenty-seven year old, unmarried, childless woman pursuing a career and higher education. Now I know that I was just brainwashed by society! This frees me from all of my responsibilities! I no longer have to waste my time and energy on rational thought or concern myself with securing a financial future: I can just throw all of my girly energy into finding a man who will worry his big strong mind about those difficult details and leave me free to enjoy my dolls, play dress up, and daydream about being a princess (if I dream hard enough, it may come true!!).

So frustrating that my parents brought me up believing I could be anything I wanted to be! I wasted *so much* of my time believing I could challenge myself outside of the home through study and work experience. I would be so much happier right now if I had just listened to my pretty pink little girl heart and stayed home to iron, fold laundry, and to do the thing I love to do most, cook dinners. I've been lying to myself. All of the fun and learning in my twenties has blocked out the tick-tock of my biological clock. But I hear it now! Loud and clear! Time to find a man and pop out some babies. My daughters will NEVER make this mistake and waste so much precious baby-making, family-having time! Gotta put this uterus to work before it shrivels up.

Life changing read. Now if only I could find a book about how to pick out the perfect apron/smart heels outfit combination so I can look beautiful while slaving over the oven and chasing the kiddos around. Don't want my future hubby to get bored with me and start having an affair with the typist!
