What's a gal to do when her man's giving her everything she wants except a ring? This irreverent guide will help the marriage-ready woman evaluate the severity of her not-so-ready man's excuses for delaying marriage and sharpen her abilities to dismantle them. With a funny but firm hand, Lori Uscher-Pines, who herself maneuvered for a ring from her now-husband, offers the reader serious tips for securing a marriage proposal from the excuse-ridden, free-milk-gulping man she loves.

Buying the Cow in the Age of Free Milk includes:

*How to know if it's really time to push for a ring

*The difference between me excuses, you excuses and institution of marriage excuses

*The "severity" scale of common male excuses, and the associated tactics for changing his mind

*Behavior fouls not to make on the quest for a proposal

Pushing for a proposal is about female empowerment, and this must-have guide will help the reader take control of her personal life without giving up the romantic, "then-he-got-down-on-one-knee" moment she's always imagined.

Buying the Cow in the Age of Free Milk is perfect for when you're ready to hook up for good...and he's not.” —Andrea Lavinthal & Jessica Rozler, authors of The Hook Up Handbook: The Single Girl's Guide to Living it Up
