Book Description
The VOWS - A Marriage Monologue - Keep the Ring On Your Finger & Off the Trigger Did you think falling in love would be enough to overcome the divorce deck that was stacked against you when you tied the knot? Has your home front become grounds for HOMEicide and you often find yourself with an itchy-trigger-ring finger?

When marriage expectations become a 4-alarm marriage reality, this hilarious guide will show you how to keep the ring on your finger and off the trigger, because no matter how much love you share, there will always be a handful or, more likely, a hamper full of annoying habits that will drive you nuts about your husband.

With a comical eye to validating the marital mayhem of everywoman through humorous, yet serious comMANdments, this marriage monologue will guide you through each marriage vow for BETTER or WORSE.

  • I DO - "Accept Him in Spite of Him"
  • FOR BETTER - "His Quiet Support May Be Your Life Support"
  • FOR WORSE - "Map Directions to Never-Ever Land - Then Never Go There" and "Learn to Debate, Not Box?"
  • FOR RICHER - "Watch for Glitches in Champagne Wishes"
  • FOR POORER - "Don't Retaliate with RETAILiation"
  • TO HOLD - "Encourage His Inner Rooster, Boys Love to Crow"
  • IN JOY - "Look at Married Life like a Bowl of Cherries, Not a Little Blue Box"
  • IN SORROW - "What to Do When, 'I'll Drink to That' Turns into 'I'll Drink to Anything?'"
  • TO LOVE - "Love Might be Blind, but Deaf Too?" and "Include Him in Your Daily Planner, Love Takes Time"
  • TO COMFORT - "Unplug the iLife & Tune into Your Home Life"
  • FORSAKING ALL OTHERS - "Hang Up on the Virtual Hook-Up"

    Uncover the dirty little secrets that make up your wedding vows and build brick-solid marriages by simplifying, applying and living The VOWS. Each of the 16 vows is wrapped by a relevant statistic that you may or may not want to be counted in.

    Take The VOWS to heart, keep the ring on your finger and you too can declare Victory Over Wedded Statistics!

About the Author:

Maria Anderson

Maria was originally a Jersey Girl. After attending American University, Washington, DC and The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NYC, during the turbulent 60‘s, she moved to California where she was Company Manager for numerous Broadway, Los Angeles and National Tours.

Currently Maria fills her life with writing, gardening and serving on local Charity Boards. She’s known for her Italian cooking and is a master of mixology. (Code for “throws a great party.”)

In 1968, Stage Manager, Johnny “Andy” Anderson breezed into her life and never left. After years of theatrical touring, decades owning a successful restaurant in Monterey, California and raising two gorgeous daughters, they continue to laugh and hold hands.

Barbara Davi

Barbara's love for writing was eclipsed only by her passion for family. Santa Clara University found her hand-picked to research and write about accomplished women authors for a novel her professor was writing, but in the blink of an eye marriage and motherhood took precedence. While raising four children she has been a member of the California Board of Real Estate for the past 25 years and successfully launched a home design business.

Barbara and the love of her life commute between homes in Carmel, California and Scottsdale, Arizona. They continue to celebrate their romance every five years by dining at the top of the Eiffel Tower.
