With three marriages under her belt, Tracy McMillan KNOWS how to get married, and she knows exactly why so many other women still aren't.
In Why You're Not Married... Yet, she pulls no punches telling the modern woman precisely what she's doing wrong.
Based on Tracy's Valentine's Day Huffington Post article of the same title, her new book explores how and why women are standing in their own way when it comes to tying the knot. Shortly after its publication, the article went viral, garnering 1,404,533 views, and now stands as the Huffington Post's second most viewed article of all time - and probably one of its most rebutted, having spawned strong response articles on CNN.com, The Frisky, and countless blogs.
With chapters like ‘You're a bitch,' ‘You're Godless,' and ‘You're selfish,' Tracy details in straightforward language ten reasons why single women are still single. But it's not all tough love; she also offers up seriously sage advice, along with insight into how her desperate search for security as a child in foster care taught her to look for very specific traits in the men she dated - traits that just so happen to lead to marriage a surprisingly high percentage of the time.
Tracy doesn't pretend to be an expert on lasting relationships - and says as much to whomever will listen - but she WILL get women down the aisle, with biting humor, wicked smarts, and heart to spare.
