A New York Times Bestseller!

One woman undertakes a worldwide search to learn the secrets of a great marriage—and finds one foundational truth that could change everything.

Fawn Weaver was a happily married woman running a successful business—and then something happened. Maybe it was divorce rate reports on the evening news, The Real Housewives of Orange County, or any daytime talk show where husbands and wives dramatically reveal their betrayals. Everywhere she looked, Fawn saw negative portrayals of marriage dominating the airwaves and dooming everyone to failure.

 Looking at Keith, the love of her life, she knew that wasn’t true. She was determined to find and connect with women just like her—happy and optimistic about marriage, deeply in love with her spouse, and committed to building a strong marriage that stands the test of time.

 On a whim,she started the blog HappyWivesClub.com and sent the link to a few of new friends. What started as a casual invitation to five women exploded into an international online club with 150,000 members in more than 100 countries.

 Happy Wives Club is Fawn’s journey across the world to meet her friends and discover what makes their marriages great. Join her on this exciting, exotic trip across six continents and through more than eighteen cities. Walk the streets of Mauritius, the historic ruins in Italy, and the vistas of New Zealand and Australia. Go from Cape Town to London, Manila to Buenos Aires, Winnipeg to Zagreb.

 Along the way, you will meet everyday women whose marriage secrets span cultures. You will hear their stories, witness their love, and be inspired by the proof that happy, healthy marriages do exist—and yours can be one of them!

 It turns out great marriages are all around us—when we look for them. Go on a trip with Fawn and learn the best marriage secrets the world has to offer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Disappointment My bookclub selected this book because, based on the description, it held so much potential and all ended up being disappointed in our own way. The author traveled the world, but essentially all her examples of a happy marriage were from the same socio-economic background, all had similar religious views, and aside from one couple, seemingly did not face any significant odds, or at least ones that were discussed (loss of a child, immigration to a new country, political unrest, racism, cultural or religious differences between spouses, etc, etc). She didn't get into any cultural contexts or discuss how this may have impacted impressions or views on marriage. While I could have expected that 'respect' was a fundamental element of a happy marriage, what I wanted was a bit of a discussion and exploration of what this meant to different ages, cultures, backgrounds, etc. Unfortunately we also didn't enjoy the author's actual writing style. Even if a book doesn't have great substance, sometimes it can be saved by style, descriptions, etc. This one was not. It's rare that the entire group dislikes a book - this ranks as one of our biggest disappointments in 10 years of regular reading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A world-wide jounrey to uncover simple secrets Fawn Weaver tells the story of how she set out to travel around the world to discover the secrets of a happy marriage. She had become disappointed with how North American media depicts marriage as something fundamentally broken and doomed to failure, something that she believed was not true. Her journey proves her point. This book is a combination of a self-help book and a memoir. Actual tips for having a happy marriage are slim (and summarized in a short list at the end of the book), but it is still encouraging to read the stories of the people Fawn meets. She also shares the story of her own strong marriage, and also details of her younger life. All in all, it is an encouraging and uplifting book. The secret to successful marriage is as simple as trust and respect, and Fawn doesn't try to complicate that.
