Colbert, Mary. 13 Women You Should Never Marry And How Every Man Can Recognize Them. Brentwood, TN: Worthy Publishing. 2015.
“If this glass slipper fits, break it!” Written for men as they contemplate and consider marriage, Mary Colbert shares traits and qualities in women which become the defining characteristic of their personalities. With a light-hearted yet serious approach to prospective partners, Mary Colbert describes aspects both men and women can relate to, if honest. With coordinating names (Prideful Patty, Addicted Annie, Dominating Donna), red, yellow and green flags (alerts), a correlating Bible story and typical behavior in a relationship, 13 Women You Should Never Marry showcases the opposite of essential qualities of a healthy wife.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
How clever! In a round-about-way, Mary Colbert takes an inner peek at herself and other women, hoping to share insights on making a wise marriage choice, in turn, creating a healthier marriage. Though I opened this book with a bit of trepidation (would it be appropriate?), I found myself chuckling and relating to many of the identified personalities (almost…LOL). An easy book to read yet an invaluable resource for anyone considering marriage, the theme was smart. Perhaps Mary Colbert will consider a book for women entertaining marriage (Dastardly Dan, Pouty Pete, Skip-around Steve)?
