“Very wise . . . Give this book to every single girlfriend [you] have.”—Marie Claire
If you’re looking to get married and you’re not, there’s most likely a very good reason: you. Hey, you’re certainly not a bad person! You just haven’t yet become the woman you need to be in order to have the partnership you want. That’s where this book comes in. Based on her wildly popular Huffington Post article, Tracy McMillan’s Why You’re Not Married . . . Yet dishes out no-holds-barred practical wisdom for women hoping to head down the aisle. And this new edition features even more candid advice and sisterly insight. McMillan points out the behaviors that might be in your blind spot and shows you how to adjust them to get the relationship you deserve. Do any of these chapter headings sound familiar?
• You’re a Bitch: How defensiveness can hide behind a tough exterior, and why being nice is never a sign of weakness.
• You’re a Liar: How to stop lying to men—and get honest with yourself—about the kind of relationship you really want.
• You’re Selfish: The big secret about marriage: It’s about giving something, not getting it.
A funny, insightful guide, Why You’re Not Married . . . Yet will change your life and the way you think about relationships, and it may very well lead you down the aisle.
“Equal parts BFF, boot-camp instructor, and relationship guru, Tracy McMillan will change the way you think about yourself and your relationships. This book is for every woman out there who wants to have a great marriage.”—Ricki Lake

    I have never read a book that made me take such a huge look at myself and my shortcomings. This book was such an eyeopener for me. To think I had my stuff together and realize, I really didn't!! Lol!! Huge thanks to the big sister Tracy M. for the reality check!!!
  • It (seriously) changed my life

    I'm pushing 30; unmarried and unhappy. I stumbled upon this book while reading an article Why Aren't You Married...Yet posted by a friend on FB. It was a life-changing moment for me when I started reading this book---having just thrown a tantrum at my boyfriend and my mom (on separate occasion). This book made me realized what I am all this time: a crazy-selfish-angry lady who doesn't understand why she's feeling that way and did emotionally hurtful things to herself and others. I began to see all that I am, flaws and all, and been working towards an open-mindedness to change for the better. Thank you so much Tracy for being that "Spirited goddess in the universe" who guided me towards a better me... And I love how she did it all with a straight-talkin' no BS, love giving, big sister way of waking you up from your own BS (that's been preventing you from being married). Want to stop feeling miserable about yourself, your life, etc.? Then you really need to buy this book like right now. Thank you again, love you Trace!
  • I Loved every last word

    By Mahogany Girl
    Thank you for making it all "elementary my dear Watson". Tracy broke it all down to the smallest element to make it all easy to understand, digest and take action! I'm not a fan of self help books but I have told all my friends about this book and even purchased one who was taking her time buying it - because I knew she would benefit from it! I have! I will! All women can learn something at any point in their lives what Tracy talks about: tapping into your spiritual side,(Heck getting a spiritual side), hearing what no one else has the nerve to tell you, and learning about/understanding what has confounded you for years. You rock Tracy! Thank you....

    By Unc.chucky
    This book is a must read for every single woman over 30! The book uses humor to make single woman honestly evaluate the reason that they are single. I have never written a review, but this book is excellent. I would even dare say that it is better than Act like a lady, think like a man!

    By Jennifer Yeo
    I have read so many relationship books, I almost gave up. This book puts practicality to all the wisdom out there about relationships and marriage. First book ever to make me cry! Thanks!

    I enjoyed her writing style and the format in which she laid out her points. Statement. Explanation. Spiritual solution. Informative and entertaining! Passed it in to other girlfriend who lived it too!
