Abstract:

Much has been written about what women want from their relationships and marriages. But what men want has remained a mystery--until now. Chethik spent two years traveling across the country, talking with men of different ages, religions, and ethnic backgrounds, in urban centers and rural towns, married for anywhere from a few weeks to 72 years. He notes the enormous changes in American marriage since the 1960s and explores how men have tried to adjust to them--sometimes successfully, often not. He finds that most men are not commitment-phobic, don't have sex on their minds all the time, and are willing to talk frankly about their relationships--just not in the same way women do. This book demonstrates that despite their many differences, most husbands and wives ultimately want the same thing: a trusted fellow traveler in their journey through life.--From publisher description.
