You successfully navigated years of dating, the anxiety of a proposal, and the stress of a wedding. Time for the smooth sailing to begin? Not so fast. The next step is learning that there are unwritten rules that she knows but won’t directly fill you in on. It’s like the secret code that you tried to decipher on the back of the cereal box as a kid—minus the fact that its far more complicated and doesn’t come with an upside-down answer key.
Eric San Juan has written the rulebook to the game that husbands have been playing for thousands of years. This pocket-sized book will take the place of your “little black book” that she told you to throw out (yet we all know its secretly hidden in your sock drawer). It’s your new bible. Filled from cover to cover with the skills you need to be a husband, father, and sane human being, Stuff Every Husband Should Know is practical, quirky, and a marriage necessity.
Eric San Juan begins by displaying the Ten Commandments of Marriage. Included in the humorously accurate list are the basics that “Your wife is always the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen”, “Everything is your fault- learn to embrace this”, and “When you wife says ‘fine’, it means she is not happy.” As you further dive into the secrets that would have previously taken you years of sleeping on the couch to figure out, you will learn how to repair a wall, prepare the perfect marinara sauce, and even how to side with your wife in an argument with your mother.
Marriage is a road of blessings paved with bumpy obstacles. Everyone deserves a roadmap.
