The Only Roadmap You Need to Find a Relationship That Lasts and a Life That Works
Money? In the bank.
To the casual observer, marriage in America may appear to be falling out of fashion. After all, we’re constantly deluged with stories about the merits of singlehood and even the joys of being childfree.
But if flying solo is so great, why are online dating sites a billion-dollar industry, replete with clients looking to get hitched?
In How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched): A 12-Step Program for Marriage-Minded Women, author and marriage coach Suzanne Venker exposes 4 lies the culture tells and provides a detox in the form of a 12-step program to redress the false messaging women have absorbed about men, sex, marriage, work and family.
This is not a book about marriage, per se. It's a book about how to incorporate marriage, if that is what you want, into your life plan.
In fact, if you're currently in college or you're a recent grad, you still need this book even though you may not have marriage on your mind. Because a lasting marriage and a balanced life begin long before you say "I do."
In this 12-step program, you will learn:
- Why your twenties matter and how to make the most of these years
- How to date with purpose and a plan
- Why living with a man to whom you’re not engaged is a massive mistake
- Facts about your fertility no one will tell you
- Why love alone is no reason to get married
- A brand new way to balance work & family
A call to arms, How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched) will ignite a much-needed debate about the misplaced priorities of the modern generation. The superwoman ideal with which women have been raised is not sustainable in real life.
Women can have most of what they want out of life, but only if they pursue it in piecemeal fashion. And in the right order.

"I was always proud to be a strong independent women who didn’t need a man. My mom would say to me, 'You’re the CEO of your life; don’t depend on a man.' She had a list of things for me to accomplish before I settled down: get an education, have a career, travel the world, have money in the bank, buy real estate, and then consider finding a husband. I had a massive awakening at how society and my mother/parents programmed me to think and act…I did the work, found my amazing partner, and am now teaching my girlfriends how to rethink what we have been taught. I am SO grateful for your work, Suzanne."
Suzanne Venker is an author, a marriage & relationship coach, and host of The Suzanne Venker Show. Most importantly, however, Suzanne is a wife of 23 years and a mother to a college-age son and daughter.
“You have massively impacted the way I see and deal with men. Thank you from the bottom of my soul for the enlightening and truthful work that you share with the world!”
“The world and my own mother haven't spoken to be about any of this...I thought what I was feeling wasn't quite normal until I found your work. Thank you sooo much, Suzanne!”

“I love sharing Suzanne with jaded lonely girlfriends, lol.”
"Where the hell were you when I was a twenty-something?"
"This book does something that I had not thought possible: it synthesizes exactly how young women are thinking and acting in relationships and then gives them useful, practical solutions."
