"The Rules" for any committed relationship, How Not to Screw It Up offers 10 essential steps to achieving an extraordinary, healthy, fulfilling partnership that will last a lifetime.
How Not to Screw It Up is for all those people who have vowed "I do" and are now wondering exactly how to do it. One of the central problems for couples is that they've been conditioned to think that there is nothing to do after the "I do." Relationship expert Nita Tucker sets us straight, espousing a proactive approach to any relationship and showing us how to do it right. Good, sound, practical advice on keeping a relationship solid and happy is as rare as it is valuable, and that's exactly what How Not to Screw It Up delivers.

Following the format of her highly successful first book, How Not to Stay Single, Tucker has created 10 steps for couples to follow in order to keep their partnership (and love) alive. For example, "Learn to Fight Fair," "Watch What You Say," "When It Comes to Sex, Give--Don't Trade," and "Agree to Disagree About Money."

How Not to Screw It Up is for people who want their relationships to be the best they can be--passionate, romantic, honest, and fun!
