I was 'shacking up' before I read Anne James-Sieff's book. It really made me see how this is really bad for us women. Read Shacking up even if you are married. It provides a lot of insight
Dr. Laura was right.

I am so glad that I heard about this book! I have been to hundreds of pyschology sessions at a whoping $150 an hour! My problems were with the man I was shacking up with for 10 years! Anxiety is what I was feeling but couldn't put my finger on it. When I got a hold of the book it answered so many questions I had and more!! After reading it ( I finished it in 6 hours)the next night when my "friend" came home from work (late as always with an exuse) I told him he was moving out on the weekend. That it was over and I actually felt empowered instead of cowaring and weak! I just have to say to the author THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HARD WORK. I feel so proud of myself and happier than I thought I could EVER be because of your experience. I am telling ALL my girlfriends (there are 8 of them living together) to get this book AND to keep it in plain view for their honey's to see. Wow, you talk about being liberated! I am and I'm loving it!

I just have to say one thing. This woman is really brave! It's about time this book was written by a woman who put herself on the line about her choosing to shack up and then to tell the world she was doing it! Nobody wants to look bad in front of others but she doesn't care how she looks, she just wants to help other's from choosing this really painful lifestyle! I couldn't have done it, that's for sure. She totally condems herself for doing it! How many of us would talk about our private lives to the world and risk the ridicule that would come from others? No one that I know of! I sure as heck wouldn't. I could see where some people would take offense to it because she's so straight forward about her opinion but she scolds herself while telling others how bad it is for their well being! How brilliant is that I must add! Anyway, I loved the book, there were so many points that I never even thought of! Read it if your shacking up, it's an eye opener. By the way I would never shack up after reading it!

I loved it. the author is right on the money!

She gets a little dramatic at times, I will admit, but she is bold in illustrating the truth about this sorry, sad lifestyle.

I know from experience why women should not move in with their boyfriend or lover. I didn't shack up as long as the author did in her relationship, but I'm glad I got out when I did. It paved the way for me to marry a great man three years later.

I am in the middle of writing a blog about this subject that I hope will benefit women everywhere. Ladies if you are thinking about moving in....get this book, read it, take it to heart.
