What if giving up control means getting the love you want?
America is in love with the alpha female. She's the quintessential modern woman: assertive, razor sharp and fully in control. Her success in the marketplace is undeniable, a downright boon to society. But what happens when the alpha woman gets married?
She becomes an alpha wife, of course.
An alpha wife is in charge of everything and everyone. She is, quite simply, the Boss. The problem is, no man wants a boss for a wife. That type of relationship may work for a spell, but it will eventually come crashing down.
“Suzanne Venker presents a refreshing guide to a happy marriage. The insights and advice she gives will save many marriages.”

What People are Saying
“Oh, how I wish I had this book 25 years ago! I’ve been through two marriages and divorces and am embarking on another relationship. ‘She either changes her preferences in a mate, or she changes herself. If she’s smart, she’ll do both’ was an eye-opener for me. Thank you for writing this book.”
“This is a book I will definitely be re-reading when I fall off the wagon. Suzanne Venker articulated very well the psyche of the male mind and the psyche of the female mind that women just take for granted.”
“My women’s lib era mom told me to be alpha. It took me years of knocking that notion out of my head to be successful in relationships. Good for the workplace? Yes. Good for personal life? Heck no!”
Being an alpha wife is not fun, for my husband or for me. But I do thank you for making me realize that I AM AN ALPHA WOMAN. It’s funny for me how a simple quiz made me find the answer why I’m always disappointed with my husband’s actions. Now I know he’s not the problem. I am.”
