In Dave Barry's Guide to Marriage and/or Sex, one of America's most beloved writers turns his keen, if somewhat rheumy, eye to the institution of marriage.

Hahaha... emang bisa saja Mas Dave Barry ini.

The best source of reliable information is romance novels, which you can find in better bookstores and supermarkets everywhere. To know the books I mean--the cover always is a picture of a handsome and of course brooding man embracing a woman with green eyes and a bosom that is clearly heaving, sometime

"I'm sorry, but unfortunately you hold no more physical attraction for me than those photographs you sometimes see of a cold virus magnified several million times."
