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 look at manners and relationships from his unique perspective. Find the secrets to a long and happy marriage or partnership—without psychoanalysis or prescription medication. Couples’ most mischievous manners foibles (his own included) are recounted through the author’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). The book 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 one’s 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 to pair up.
