How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched): A 12-Step Program for Marriage-Minded Women


How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched) is a 12-step program that liberates women from the lies they’ve absorbed about men and marriage and offers a new, foolproof roadmap for navigating life and love.

Ladies, Are You Ready for Your Detox?

Degree? Check.

Career? Yup.

Money? In the bank.


America is single. It’s divorced, under committed, and hopelessly out of touch with how to build a relationship that lasts. Women, in particular, are groomed for a life centered on career and on being fiercely independent—as though marriage and family were a nice idea, or a possible accompaniment, to an otherwise satisfying life.

But if flying solo is so great, why are online dating sites a billion-dollar industry, replete with clients looking to get hitched?

In How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched), author and marriage coach Suzanne Venker claims women need a detox from the cultural narratives they’ve absorbed about men, sex, love, marriage, work, and family and offers a 12-step program to help women think in a way that contradicts everything they’ve been taught so they can find the life and the love they crave.

Here is just a sampling of the twelve steps:

  • Get over yourself
  • Find your feminine
  • Get a ring, not a roommate
  • Marry the accountant, not the artist
  • Know your body

How to Get Hitched (and Stay Hitched) is the antidote women need to reject the lies they’ve been fed by our culture when it comes to their future happiness. It’s about what women really want versus what they’ve been told they should want, and about what is true of men and marriage versus what women have been told is true.

Get ready. This book will rock your world.
