Don’t walk down that aisle until you read this book! Whether you’re engaged, in a serious relationship, or looking for Mr. Right, How Not to Marry the Wrong Guy can help you decide to take the plunge or run in the opposite direction.

Anne Milford canceled her wedding five months before the big day. It was a heart-wrenching decision, but one she has never regretted as she is now happily married with three children. On telling her story, she realized her qualms were remarkably common. That too many brides – she learned later from hundreds of interviews - were staying in mediocre or bad relationships for all the wrong reasons. Women who felt they’d already “put in too much time to quit now,” or that if they got married, “he’d change.” Co-author and social worker Jennifer Gauvain has counseled too many women to count who are in the same awful predicament. 

How Not to Marry the Wrong Guy
will help readers listen to their guts, pay attention to those red flags, and get out before saying “I do,” when their heart is screaming “I don’t!”
