Um. This book scares me. The first sentence of this book’s description reads: “In this hip and utterly indispensable guide, two happily married husbands and regular guys reveal the secrets to getting a man down on bended knee — his most uncomfortable position.”
Now I’m sure authors Richard Kirshenbaum and Daniel Rosenberg are great guys. But I’m not sure I want to explore “the artful use of marketing tactics” to “reel in” The Beard. Or to convince him that “marriage is man’s best friend.”
I’m sure this book is cute. And I’m sure that leaving it laying around the house would scare The Beard, which is a huge bonus. But I think I’d rather sacrifice my relationship than forever wonder if I was married only because I’d duped some poor man into it or used sophisticated psychology to make the fellow believe he wanted to marry me.
In fact, I’ve told The Beard many a time that I certainly don’t want to marry anyone who doesn’t want to marry me just as much. Or someone who looks upon marriage as a lifelong sentence.
Am I wrong here?
