The marriage revolution is at hand--it's going on right now, led by a new generation of married women who crave independence and adventure just as much as they crave commitment. With her fifteen years of experience at top women's magazines, Mandi Norwood hosts the perfect girls' night out, revealing married women's most intimate confessions from more than one hundred in-depth interviews. Sometimes hilarious, often tender, and always empowering, this smart, sexy, candid guide offers from-the-heart, savvy, and practical advice about every aspect of modern marriage from power, controlling money, and omigod-the-mother-in-law, to brazen behavior in bed.It's something entirely different-sexier, more independent and definitely more complicated. The balance of power has not just shifted, it's off its axis entirely.

Mandi Norwood has tapped into the new beast that is modern marriage to deliver straight talk about what really happens: at the dinner table, over the checkbook and in the bedroom. In over one hundred interviews with these new-fashioned wives-hitched chicks-Norwood learned not just what women in marriages today want but how they get it. She found an energetic, adventurous generation whose intimate confessions add up to a hilarious and very candid night out with the girls.

"As soon as he slips the ring on your finger, find this book and read it cover to cover. It's the must-have-how-to manual for marriage."-Lucy Danziger, editor-in-chief, Self
