While our weekly OCC is generally reserved for organic treats, we just couldn’t pass up the chance to share one of our favorite new reads. The Secret Lives of Wives: Women Share What It Really Takes to Stay Married is an exciting look inside the marriages of several real women. Their advice is somewhat controversial and their secrets are incredibly juicy, so you’ll walk away wanting to discuss it with a friend.

We are giving away a copy of The Secret Lives of Wives to one lucky reader! To enter, leave a comment telling us one piece of relationship advice you’ve ever heard, received or passed along – it can be the best OR the worst advice!

Here is a blurb about the book:

America’s high divorce rate is well known. But little attention has been paid to the flip side: couples who creatively (sometimes clandestinely) manage to build marriages that are lasting longer than we ever thought possible. What’s the secret? To find out, bestselling journalist Iris Krasnow interviewed more than 200 wives whose marriages have survived for 15 to 70 years. They are a diverse cast, yet they share one common and significant trait: They have made bold, sometimes secretive and shocking choices on how to keep their marital vows, “till death do us part,” as Krasnow says, “without killing someone first.”

    My advice would be communication, communication, communication! Also, put you spouse first. If they do the same…it will all be good.

  2. This books sounds so good! I just got married 3 weeks ago so it would be a great read :) I agree with Joan, communication is so important. Also, if your significant other seems cranky, most of the time it’s not about you and asking them a million times “What’s wrong?” isn’t going to help!

Any Thoughts?
