Steve Doocy, co-host of Fox & Friends, who has been married twenty consecutive years, provides real slice of life stories on everything from early marriage, pregnancy, and the joys of child rearing, to sending your child to college and retirement.

The book can be used for its hilarious husband and wife wisdom, or if things aren't going well, it can be used as a flying projectile to get somebody's attention. This is not an advice book. It is a don't even think of trying this book. The author and his collection of friends and family have already discreetly made almost every conceivable marriage mistake, and it is their hope that this irreverent manual can save you the trouble of being an idiot on your own.

Most stories conclude with "corrections" from Doocy's real life wife Kathy, who after two decades of picking up his socks in the garage, has developed a zany sense of humor herself.

Let's face it, marriage is ridiculously hard, but laughing about it is now incredibly easy, with The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook.
