This Book Contains Everything You Could Ever Want to Know About Marriage
It was even written by a married couple.
People always have advice for newlyweds: "Never go to bed angry," "Make time for date night," and "Don't ever work together." Stephen Adler and Lisa Grunwald didn't take that last piece of advice—in fact, they've collaborated on multiple projects, and their most recent one is all about marriage. This week on "The Labor of Love," host Lori Leibovich spoke to Adler and Grunwald about their upcoming anthology, The Marriage Book: Centuries of Advice, Inspiration, and Cautionary Tales from Adam and Eve to Zoloft ($24, amazon.com). It's an A-to-Z guide—literally!—with advice that lines up to every letter of the alphabet ("G" is for "grievances" and "Q" is for "qualms," to name a few). In this week's episode, the authors share what it was like to work with each other and the most important, enduring lessons they learned about marriage from all of their research. Warning: You might tear up.
