About the Book

You’re madly in love and you think this might be it. The guy you’re dating seems like the one you’ve been dreaming of all these years — handsome, smart, funny, and kind. But is he really the one?

In this modern day of shifting roles and lines of responsibility bright and successful women expect the men in their lives to be equal partners at home and at work and are not willing to compromise. They want a life partner who will not just be a great lover but also a best friend and family man. With about 40% of all marriages ending in divorce women need to be sure – before they commit.

This 160 page trade book teaches young women how to identify and avoid macho men, chauvinists and man-splainers – and find a true life partner. 

For over 25 years – since the publication of the book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” – women have been told to compromise in relationships and accept their partner’s behavior and “settle.” This book empowers women by dispelling the myth that our biology is the main cause of relationship problems and surfacing the deeply hidden cultural and social pressures that are at the root of male-female conflict. As Fitzgerald says,” Given the constant and severe socialization of both males and females today I am not surprised at the high divorce rate. Even if you are deeply in love you will find it almost impossible to flourish as a couple in our gendered and sexist culture.”

Dr. Fitzgerald, a gender expert and former lawyer uses six easy questions to help women (and their partners) question their childhood “blue and pink” socialization. Readers learn how to identify their out-dated ideas about  masculine and feminine traits and sex-role sterotypes.  This book challenges the idea that “boys will be boys” and “girls will be girls” and paints a clear picture and describes a straight path towards truly equal relationships.

With reference to research and seminal texts, this is an essential guide that will be used by women, couples and marriage counselors for years to come.   It will (finally) replace Mars and Venus by showing that equality – not tolerance – is the secret ingredient to healthy relationships.

Whether dating, engaged or married, these 40 questions are guaranteed to change the way you look at your relationship and also help you avoid common pitfalls.

Don’t settle for the wrong guy. Take the time to ask the questions now. And if you are a mother who fears that her daughter might marry the wrong man, buy her this book today!
