“99 Things Women Wish They Knew Before Saying... "I Do" by Dr. Laurie Weiss is the new manifesto for women. Whether they say ‘I do’ or ‘I don’t,’ it’s got all the ingredients for a woman to be smart, sassy, and successful. From demystifying the beliefs and myths of coupledom that detour so many; to handling money; and a myriad of unexpected hiccups, this book is a gem. The resources are excellent. It should be required reading for anyone single ... and it wouldn’t hurt those who are married as well!”
Author, Money Smarts for Turbulent Times
“Laurie expresses a wealth of information to women in all stages of relationship-life that can help them answer the question: Why does some-thing that feels so good (a love relationship) become something that feels so bad? Backed by years of personal and professional experience with personal stories, her message is succinct and clear—on a psychological level everything has an explanation.”

Author, Is It Love or Is It Addiction?
“This book is an excellent resource for any woman, in a relationship or not. But, it is especially important information for a woman contemplating marriage. Weiss really gets at the core of what women need to consider before making that ultimate commitment.”
Author, Secrets of Happy Couples
“In a world flooded with self-help texts, this book presents a well organized, thoughtful, and realistic ‘guidebook’ for a successful marriage. Moreover, sharing the ‘secrets’ of real women makes it particularly enticing (delicious?). I wish I’d had a book like this years ago.”
“Where do women most likely learn about all the ins-and-outs of how to build a healthy relationship anyway? Certainly not in the seventh grade locker room or in health class. No one told us THE most important things to understand, relationship-wise and as such we presume that Prince Charming will love, honor, and cherish us till death do us part. WRONG! Relationships take work, understanding, and pro-active behaviors to make them stay healthy and satisfying. Helping women recognize that the fairy tale is not the truth, Laurie Weiss gives women the tools for making the right choices in a mate and whether or not marriage necessarily should be the end-all in every relationship. Unless you’re a nun, every woman NEEDS THIS BOOK!”
