I poop when i poop. No hiding it here!

I actually found some of the things she said to be valid. Obviously some of it was a little outrageous. I didn't like the man's comments, because they sounded kind of rapey but some of the other stuff I found to be good points. Marriage is partially about keeping your spouse happy. And sometimes that is going to mean going out of your way to do so.

She's gunna eat her words . Laughed my ass off on the pooping thing. I can't imagine being that uncomfortable and stressed about pooping. Her marriage is so based off superficial things that when she's old she won't be able to do. What happens when you poop in a bag eh?

Wonder if she knows there's more to a relationship besides sex.

I'm sorry, but I don't see most of these as outrageous. Obviously Joe's comment was a bit out there (although he's never been good with words in the first place... hopefully that's not what he meant). But I personally agree with her advice. Those are all things that I practice in my marriage and strongly believe in.

A marriage is about all things- not just pro-creating or being roommates with a shared bank account. Since when did marriage mean losing the passion? And I strongly believe in the old gender roles from the 60's... there's just some things that men are made to do better and some things that women are made to do better.

Those are just my two cents, though. Obviously not everyone agrees.

Was this written in 1950 or in the 2000's? It's hard to tell.

So basically sex is the solution to everything?

This is the same advice Dr Laura gives in her book "Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" It's a good read with lots of practical advice. It works!
