Essential Manners for Couples

From Snoring and Sex to Finances and Fighting Fair—What Works, What Doesn't, and Why

The follow up to his New York Times bestseller Essential Manners for Men, Essential Manners for Couples is Peter Post’s take at manners and relationships from his unique perspective. Herein find the secrets to a long and happy marriage or partnership—without psychoanalysis or prescription medication. Couples’ most mischievous manners foibles (the author’s own included) are recounted through Peter’s self-deprecating humor, clarity, and wit.

Peter Post looks at couples’ private lives (how they deal with each other) and their public lives (how as individuals and as a couple they deal with everyone else). Essential Manners for Couples reveals the most common “flashpoints”—places, situations and times when inconsiderate behavior is most likely to invade blissful coupledom, as well as how to enhance relationships, head off hostilities, and cultivate that all-important relationship with the significant other in your life. A must-have resource for the couple who wants to celebrate their union and strengthen it—as well as a must-read for anyone looking for Mr. or Ms. Right
