Laughter is the best medicine in this hilarious and insightful guide to surviving the start of a marriage 

The wedding was beautiful, the honeymoon was magical, but now comes the hard part. In There’s a Spouse in My House, Peter Scott guides newlyweds through the peaks and valleys of the first years of marriage with a generous dose of humor and a hard-won helping of personal experience. 

Covering topics from cohabitation (“Wives are surprised to learn that there must always be a minimum of fourteen different mustard varieties in the fridge”) to holidays (“You have six months to tell your families where you’ll be spending Thanksgiving in 2047”) and everything in between, There’s a Spouse in My House shows newlyweds how to make it through those first years with both their sense of humor and love for each other still intact.
