In thread about books that made people physically ill, ** Stella*Fantasia ** said that this book, The Rules by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider made her queasy.
I looked around and found a website for the rules : http://www.therulesbook.com
Yes, I only saw a little bit of it, but what I saw made me slightly ill as well.
What else do they tell women to do in this book? Has anyone ever found this book helpful? It just feels…wrong to me, though I’m not sure exactly why.
The Rules had been discussed in a GD thread in the past. IIRC it may have ended up in The Pit.
One of the women who wrote that book just went through a messy divorce. I don’t think you should be bothered by it, as imho anyone who takes it as gospel has a few more things “wrong” with them than a lack of a long-term relationship.
I really did not mean that the way it sounded…
The Rules kind of reminded me of the Pre Cana before our wedding. We were being lectured on birth control by a woman with eleven children.
