I don’t recall exactly when I first saw Mike Myers’ 1993 comedy So I Married an Axe Murderer, but whenever it was, it must have made quite an impression on me. I began to speculate what it might be like for someone to marry someone only then to discover their spouse possessed some highly problematic trait. I wrote six different essays on the topic over the years.
Recently, I felt inspired to republish these essays in an expanded format, that not only included information on recognizing and dealing effectively with your spouse’s specific issue, but included a great deal more. This additional information, when applied in conjunction with the remedy for the specific problem, would help lift the marriage onto a new and more rewarding level of trust, closeness and intimacy. Thus was born my So I Married… series of self-guided workbooks:
In addition to the title topic, each workbook presents a discussion of how love differs from passion (and why that matters), how to change you spouse, how to bring harmony to your home and more about the very poorly understood subject of love. And, at the low, low price of $9.95, it’s difficult to go wrong.
Each title topic is graphically illustrated by an interesting and easy-to-read fictional narrative that helps bring the lesson to life. Challenging and informative “thoughts to ponder” sections help you focus on the main take-away points of the subject.
The material is practical, informative and, while serious, written with my droll sense of humor. Based on a combination of the latest psychological research and thirty-five years of clinical practice, these workbooks are certain to be of benefit in improving your marriage. If you discover otherwise, your payment will be refunded in full, no questions asked.
