About the Author
Dr. Laurie Weiss has been changing the lives of women and men for nearly 50 years. She is an internationally known psychotherapist and author of 13 books. After over 40 years practicing psychotherapy and coaching, Dr. Laurie Weiss had no intention of starting a new phase of her career. Then a colleague helped her resolve a persistent, stressful problem using an amazing new technique. She was astounded that he did it in just a few minutes, while standing on the sidewalk outside of a restaurant, using only words. Dr. Weiss was so intrigued with this recently discovered tool that she and her husband of over fifty years, Dr. Jonathan B. Weiss, went to Nova Scotia, Canada to learn the technique. Using it, they were thrilled to help their clients make important life changes in a fraction of the time, and with a fraction of the pain ordinarily associated with psychotherapy. Now, ten years later, she is a Certified Logosynthesis Trainer and Master Practitioner and the author of a popular introductory Logosynthesis book. She is delighted to have collaborated with Dr. Lammers, the developer of this powerful method, on this project. Dr. Weiss has long believed that ordinary people can learn to help themselves solve all kinds of problems if only they have the right tools. Throughout her professional life as an expert in Business and Personal Relationship Communication, Developmentally Based Psychotherapy and Transactional Analysis, she has specialized in making those tools accessible to anyone who is interested. She brings to this, her thirteenth book, her expertise in writing in a way that makes complex professional information usable by ordinary people. She and her husband live and work in Littleton, Colorado, USA.

"Brilliant, everything we wish our mothers had told us, but didn't. Anyone who is dating, contemplating marriage, engaged or currently married will glean years of wisdom from this little black book of secrets." - Sally Shields, speaker, radio personality, author, The Daughter-In-Law Rules

"If my clients had read Dr. Weiss's informative and re-source packed book before they married, I might be looking for a new line of work!
Easily accessible, the material is chock-full of useful and often surprising information.
Take advantage of Dr. Weiss's 50 plus years of marriage and over 40 years as a relationship therapist and marriage counselor. You will not be disappointed. A thoroughly engaging read."
--Katy Kurtz, Denver divorce attorney

"Being Married: Secrets Women Wish They Knew by Dr. Laurie Weiss is the new manifesto for women. Whether they say 'I do' or 'I don't, ' it's got all the ingredients for a woman to be smart, sassy, and successful. From demystifying the beliefs and myths of coupledom that detour so many; to handling money; and a myriad of unexpected hiccups, this book is a gem. The resources are excellent. It should be required reading for anyone single ... and it wouldn't hurt those who are married as well!"
--Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd(R)

"Laurie expresses a wealth of information to women in all stages of relationship-life that can help them answer the question: Why does something that feels so good (a love relationship) become something that feels so bad? Backed by years of personal and professional experience with personal stories, her message is succinct and clear--on a psychological level everything has an explanation."
--Dr. Brenda Schaeffer, Author, Is It Love or Is It Addiction?

"This book is an excellent resource for any woman, in a relationship or not. But, it is especially important information for a woman contemplating marriage. Weiss really gets at the core of what women need to consider before making that ultimate commitment."
--Kim Olver, Author, Secrets of Happy Couples

"In a world flooded with self-help texts, this book presents a well organized, thoughtful, and realistic 'guidebook' for a successful marriage. Moreover, sharing the 'secrets' of real
women makes it particularly enticing (delicious?). I wish I'd had a book like this years ago."
--Pam Gordon, College Professor

"Where do women most likely learn about all the ins-and-outs of how to build a healthy relationship anyway? Certainly not in the seventh-grade locker room or in health class. No one told us THE most important things to understand, relationship-wise and as such we presume that Prince Charming will love, honor, and cherish us till death do us part. WRONG! Relationships take work, understanding, and pro-active behaviors to make them stay healthy and satisfying. Helping women recognize that the fairy tale is not the truth, Laurie Weiss gives women the tools for making the right choices in a mate and whether or not marriage necessarily should be the end-all in every relationship. Unless you're a nun, every woman NEEDS THIS BOOK!"
--Mary Jo Fay, RN, MSN, Author, Please Dear, Not Tonight: The Truth about Women and Sex
