We are utterly delighted to announce the official release of our newest book, My Beloved and My Friend: How To Be Married To Your Best Friend Without Changing Spouses!

According to the US Census, about 85% of 25-34 year olds with a high school diploma only were married in 1960, now only some 45% are. Sadly, almost 60% of those who do get married live together before marriage.
