If you’re looking to get married and you’re not, there’s most likely a very good reason: you. Not that you’re a bad person - you’re certainly not! It’s just that you haven’t yet become the woman you need to be in order to have the partnership you want. So how you can grow into someone who is ready to say “I do” and to attract the same in a mate? You start with this book.
Based on her wildly popular Huffington Post article - one of the site’s most-viewed of all time - Why You’re Not Married...Yet dishes out straightforward, no-holds-barred, practical, and proven advice for women hoping to head down the aisle or just have a great relationship. With sisterly insight, razor-sharp wit, and refreshing candor, McMillan points out the things that might be in your blind spot: unhelpful attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs so easy to identify in others, much more difficult to see in yourself. Then she shows you how to adjust them to get the relationship you deserve.
Like a no-nonsense but loving best friend, McMillan meets you right where you are to help you get where you’re going - with clarity and honesty. And she’ll make you laugh out loud along the way.
More than just a relationship manual, Why You’re Not Married...Yet will help you diagnose what’s preventing you from getting what you want. Do any of these chapter headings sound familiar?

Why You’re Not Married...Yet isn’t so much about getting a husband as it is about shifting your perspective on being a wife.

It’s a book that will change your life and the way you think about relationships, and it may very well lead you down the aisle.

“Tracy McMillan is a hero and visionary. Through her book I realized about myself things people I pay a lot of money have been trying to tell me for years: that I’m a bitch, a slut, a mess, and that I hate myself. She gives solutions on how to heal, grow, and get what you want in life in a funny, inspiring, personal, and very rare way. This book is an empowering way to take control of your life and become the person you want to be. So basically, she shows you how to be the opposite of me.” (Actress and comedian Whitney Cummings)

So funny and inspiring
Yes, because the author's narrative is funny and I doubt I would find it as hooking if I was reading it to myself.
