The first year of marriage is the make-it-or-break-it year. Your wedding may be just a memory--but the fight you had this morning is the here and now.

This extraordinary guide teaches you how to think like a couple, and turn your first year of marriage into one of the best years of your lives. It offers insight into the thoughts of the opposite sex, tells you how to achieve a meeting of the minds, and warns you when you should agree to disagree. It tackles the big issues such as money and in-laws, as well as the little day-to-day things that can drive you crazy. With real-life scenarios that are often hilarious, and advice that is both witty and wise, this friend-to-friend guide provides down-to-earth, practical answers to questions like:
How do you deal with your folks when you visit on the holidays?
Should you have a joint bank account or keep your money separate?
How can you get him to go to the mall? How do you get her to go to the game?
Can you find a way to overcome differences in political and religious beliefs?

After making it through the tribulations of their own first year of matrimony, advertising copywriter David and book editor Wendy Hubbert decided to make that crucial period easier on other couples. The result is really a combination of two books--one with his advice for men, the other with her advice for women--that deal with issues ranging from sex to shopping. The Hubberts have a pretty clear picture of the annoyances that beginning couples face, and present them in a joking style that will be recognizable to fans of the television show Mad About You. (Him: "There are certain things no self-respecting woman will tolerate. Such as filth." Her: "He has an amazingly high tolerance for dirt: If you can't see it, it's clean!") Couples who read the book together will get a few good laughs as each recognizes the other's quirks, but there are some solid relationship skills to be learned as well. The His & Hers Guide to Surviving Your First Year of Marriage would make a good wedding gift--but be a sport and throw in the gravy boat too.From the Publisher:
