I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with the subtitle. Nothing about this book or the couple therein makes me want to puke. Pamela and Eric are NOT vomit-inducing; they are positively INSPIRING.
Pamela writes with her usual humorous and entertaining style, but she also gives us a peek into her marriage with frank honesty and transparency. This book is not only full of laugh-out-loud stories, but also practical, no-frills tips and wisdom for achieving a marriage relationship that not only works, but blossoms.
A great marriage takes WORK and a willingness by both partners to actually DO THE WORK. Pamela lays out how she and Eric do it in an easy-to-read and easy-to-digest way without overwhelming the reader with long lists of to-do's and not-to-do's. I'm still amazed at how much solid wisdom and usable information there is crammed into this relatively short book.
What is most inspiring about Pamela and Eric is not that they "magically" or by some great luck have stars in their eyes. It is inspiring that they have that kind of love because they WORK to keep it that way. That's encouraging because it means anyone can have it...anyone willing to work for it, anyway. No luck or magic potions required (whether or not it's your first time around the marriage block!).
My response is NOT to reach for a bucket. My response is to ask if they've ever considered doing marriage seminars for the relationship challenged. :)

The author shares hysterical stories of her marriage and how she has learned to keep the intimacy protected. I loved this book because the author is bluntly honest and transparent. She invites you to sneak a peek into her marriage, the ups, downs and regular life issues, and shows how she keeps the fire going. I believe she shows us that no one has an excuse. No matter where we come from, we can all apply these principles and improve our relationships.

In a time when so many relationships fail, it is refreshing to find a book that tells us how to keep the focus on protecting our marriages and the love that brought us together. There is practical application along with show-and-tells, how things worked for the author.

This is an easy read but make no mistake and don't let the humor fool you. This book is chock full of wisdom and first-hand knowledge. I believe anyone would enjoy this book and read it again and again!

So, yes, this author can be a little unrealistically gooey when discussing her husband. However, I began reading this in an attempt to salvage the ever deteriorating relationship between my own husband and myself. And she does make lots of very good points that most people probably already know subconsciously but tend not to allow the focus and devotion needed. The points made in this book (such a more positive mental focus and the need for verbal positive affirmations) can be applied to a multitude of relationship types including ones own view of one's self. She is mushy. But she is also right on. Regardless of what happens in my current marriage, I have been able to take away a different way of looking at and interacting with everyone in my personal world.

When I first started reading this book I thought it would just be more of the typical marriage advice. Boy was I wrong! First it was funny...I mean laugh-out-loud-so-that-people-near-you-wonder-what-they-are-missing funny. Pamela's writing style is so casual, it's like talking to a friend: a friend who has some great, funny stories to share about her own marital experiences; a friend who will share EVERYTHING so you can learn from the good, the bad, and the embarrassing moments. But amidst the humor and honest anecdotes she offered real, practical advice for couples who are starting fresh or starting over. I've read other books that advertise "down to earth" tips, but they really want you to do crazy, pointless exercises that might only make sense to some weird couple on a reality show. Pamela's suggestions are succinct and clear truly doable for any normal couple. I recommend this book whether you just want a good laugh, or some good advice, or a fun mix of both.

This is my favorite of Pamela's nonfiction books so far! I love to see that Pamela keeps it real. Yes it's great to have an amazing marriage, but it's never without working at it.
I think the part that spoke to me the most is the passion! I could identify with being passionate in your marriage!... And keeping the passion in your marriage.
I loved The story about the date night Journey or should we say Def Leopard concert. Super funny!
I have to say I smiled the entire book!
If you choose one book about marriage or love relationships to read this year - pick this one! You won't be sorry!

I read this book by accident. My wife was supposed to attend Pamela's book signing, but then surgery happened, so I went instead. Pamela was so likable that after I picked up the book I was sent to get, in the next days I kept picking it up to read random chapters. Last night, I finished it all. While the humor is obvious (see chapter on Smart(Alec) Phone for a great example), the advise is gentle but to the point. Pamela Fagan Hutchinson is a great read.
