It had a lot of great points and highlights, however. the book seemed to be dated and does not fit in with today's progressive thinking. It refers to most of the women as housewives and baby makers and the men as machines in the corporate world. I think that the gender roles in the book don't apply to today. It would probably be a good idea if someone updated it to make it more relatable.
Wonderful book. It should probably make it on to the reading list of anyone who's thinking about getting married. What I love most about it, though, is that it breaks the assumption that we're supposed to be good at being married when it's not something we've done before. Fantastic.
