When you marry, you imagine married life will be so different than it is. You envision long, leisurely walks through the mall, holding hands, while you shop and he helps you find that amazing outfit. But in reality, you shop—he goes gets it. Or maybe your dad did the cleaning and you imagine your husband will willingly scrub the kitchen floor and the shower. But he doesn’t even seem to notice when they need attention.

Maybe the man you married is no where near what you imagined your Prince Charming would be like, and you’re wondering if you made a terrible mistake. If so, then WHY CAN’T HE BE MORE LIKE ME? is the book you’ve been looking for.

Poppy Smith shares her own real-life courtship and experience with her husband, Jim, trying to merge different cultures, religions, and expectations in this humorous book. Also included are questions with space for your answer, asking your ideas about your relationship, what you expected, etc.

WHY CAN’T HE BE MORE LIKE ME? is the perfect book for a new married couple, or even one that’s been married awhile but are struggling in their relationship. This book will help you see things in a new light.

When my husband saw this book, he laughed, stating, “What, do women really expect their husbands to be their clones? Marriage is made to compliment. I’m strong in areas where you’re weak, and vice versa.” And he’s right. Married couples usually compliment each other in different areas. But sometimes it takes awhile for a woman to learn that—to let her unrealistic dreams of what marriage would be like. If you are newly married or wondering if you made a mistake in your marriage then pick up a copy of WHY CAN’T HE BE MORE LIKE ME?. It will offer practical tools to help you learn to accept and enjoy your mate, resulting in a stronger, happier marriage. $12.99. 215 pages.
