If you’re thinking about buying it, you probably thought, “Hey, I’m busy, I’m married, and I want a better connection with my spouse. Maybe this can help.”
I am happy that you turned to me for that.
But as much as I would love for you to read this book, I’m going to start off by telling you why you should put it down and never look back. I know it sounds weird, but I also know that you are busy, and the last thing I want you saying when you finish reading this is, “There’s time out of my life I’ll never get back!” I don’t want you giving me one star on Amazon and telling the rest of the world why this book was a colossal waste of time. If there’s one thing I’m against, it’s wasting time. Mine and yours.
So to avoid having you publicly shame me, and my months of blood sweat and tears, I’m going to let you know why this book might be a huge waste of your precious time and hard-earned money.

This is not an extensive research study into the “whys” behind human behavior. That’s not to say that the “whys” aren’t important, but for the purposes of this book, I don’t want us to get stuck in the why and instead focus on the fact that love is in the doing.
Here’s an example: If I gave you the results of research going back to the beginning of mankind about the evolutionary significance of why a man leaves the toilet seat up, how it fills some intrinsic animal need, and why the structure of his hand makes it physically impossible for him to put the toilet seat down, it wouldn’t make a woman any less likely to land in the toilet butt-first when he leaves it up the next time. The understanding doesn’t change the possible solutions: man puts toilet seat down; woman makes it a point to look before sitting. Sure there’s a why, but at the end of the day, what women really want is to stop falling in the toilet, and there’s a simple solution to that. This book might not help you understand why men leave the toilet seat up, but it will help keep you out of the toilet.
You’re Looking for a Celebrity
Sorry. I have no sage millionaire-marriage advice to give. Just every-day, full-time job, nobody-knows-my-name advice. This advice may not work for you if you don’t have the constraints placed on you by everyday life, like working, taking care of babies, limited vacation time, and more limited vacation money. If you are looking for millionaire advice on how to live in millionaire marriages, I don’t have it. If you can’t hire a staff to do all of those everyday-life kinds of things, read on.
You are looking for a secret
Secrets are enticing to us. We all want that one magic thing that will create results, often without a lot of work. We all want to believe that there is this one thing that only a couple of people know that we don’t know that will get us from point A to point Z. Just spend anytime web surfing and you’ll find ancient secrets to everything; banish belly fat, get rid of wrinkles, become a millionaire—for a price.
Here is a secret: There is no secret. In fact, the secret answer to just about any question you can come up with is “work.” If there were a secret to weight loss, Oprah can’t afford it, so why do you think you can get it for $29.99? The secret to losing weight is to eat less and move more. All of the different renderings of the “secret” are just plans: ways to eat less and move more in ways that work for you. That is what I am offering. I’m not giving you a magic wand, I’m not showing you how to not work and still get whatever you want. I am giving you strategies on how to work within the time you have order to get the marital connection you need.
You’re a wuss
Marriage takes work. We’ve heard it many times before. We would never expect to get hired for a receptionist position one day and become CEO of the company the next. When we want to advance and learn more in any area it takes hard work, research, and a willingness to take the good with the bad.
Marriage is the same way. Everything doesn’t click at the altar. You probably will never reach a point in marriage where everything is smooth sailing, but if we continue to acknowledge the learning curve, we can work toward becoming better partners daily.
Marriage is not for chumps! We are talking about trying to make marriage last for a lifetime. Have you ever seen someone successfully do something for their whole life without investing their time and energy into it? Lifetime success doesn’t get built scratching your head on the couch. Lifetime success takes dedication, commitment, and discipline. If you aren’t willing to commit, then close the book and go back to head scratching.
Secondly, I’m going to tell you the truth. Sometimes it will be uncomfortable and it won’t feel good at first. But truth telling is my specialty. If you’re looking for warm, fuzzy lies look elsewhere.
Are you still here? Look’s like you’re ready to put on your big boy pants and do work! Check out a sample of the Making Love in the Microwave book and buy it today for PDF or Kindle for just $2.99!
