150 Secrets to a Happy Wife

Front Cover

1 Review

Joe Gumm knows how to please his wife-but that's only because he learned the hard way, by doing lots of stupid things first. Now he's giving men funny and poignant ideas to keep them out of the doghouse for good and remind women every day why they love their guys so much.

Written in a comedic tone, guaranteed to have wives and husbands laughing together and nodding in recognition, Romancing Mommy conquers the topic of how couples disconnect, especially after the kids are born, and more importantly how to reconnect through teamwork, compassion, humor, and romance.
