Why You're Not Married Yet by Tracy McMillan

Tracy McMillan
I read anything, anywhere. If I get a free moment; I will read: restaurant, bar, Starbucks, at a stoplight, work etc.

So, at the end of the school year, I had a little downtime, and I decided to read Yahoo news, and I saw this interview with Tracy McMillian discussing her book Why You're Not Married Yet. The caption went on to explain that an article written by Tracy on Why You're Not Married Yet for Huffington Post broke the record for being the online paper's most read article ever. So, you know that I had to check out the Huffington Post article and the book.

Ladies, if you are on your couch one day and your workout is done, the children are doing their thing, the house is clean and you've taken care of everything, and I mean everything, you should check this book out. I read this entire book in about two hours; not a difficult read at all. Also, I think that any woman whether married or not may enjoy this book and even get a few pointers. Think of it as a good, fun book instead of another book that is trying to tell us to fix ourselves so that we can get and keep a man.

Here are some of the top things that I got from this book:
  1. "If you want to be married, you need to express more love. Not get more love. Express it. Feel it. Be it. See it everywhere." (I think that this can be applied to all people and all love. Love makes the world go around, and we must be, do, and then we will have love.)
  2. "Marriage is just a long-term opportunity to practice loving someone even when you feel that they don't necessary deserve it. And loving is always spiritual in nature-because people are flawed and it's hard to love flaws." (Practicing love......Wow! I love it.)
  3. "You're going to have to be nice." (It never hurts to be nice unless......)
  4. Love yourself, and trust your life, more than you love him. 
One thing that I must add is that Tracy seems to view being marriage as the ultimate happiness. She's been married three times, and based on what she writes at the end of the book, she will more than likely be getting married again soon. So, just like with any book, take what you need and leave the rest in the book.

So ladies, if you read the Huffington Post article that I have linked on this page, and you read this post about the book, you just about have the gist of the entire book.

Try it if you get a free moment, and let me know what you think.

Happy, Happy Monday...

I'm in the Sunny Alabama!
