Wives, be submissive? Really? Well, yeah…and here’s why: It will lead to a more fulfilling marriage and life! In Marry Him and Be Submissive, Costanza Miriano dishes on all the hurdles and difficulties that real women face in dating, marriage, and motherhood. In a series of letters to her closest friends, Miriano offers sage, frank, and hilarious advice on:

• Whether to keep waiting to get married (No! Dive in! You’ll never be 100% “ready.”)
• How to stop worrying about all the cushy “first world problems” and embrace the true joys of family life (even if it means cutting back on Facebook a little)
• What it means—really means—when your husband doesn’t seem to be listening (he’s probably thinking about soccer, but he still
loves you)
• How to maintain your life after pregnancy 
(you can’t! It’s over! But your new life will be so much better)
• How to get through the day after you realize your kids went out with dirty underwear, or worse, no underwear (hint: wine helps)

What Others are Saying About Costanza Miriano
and Marry Him and Be Submissive . . . One of the most difficult tasks for the Church today is to help young people understand the importance of family and children, fidelity and marriage, the beauty of taking responsibility for and supporting others. . . . This arduous task has been undertaken in a new and attractive way . . . [by] Costanza Miriano, author of a fun and ironic text . . . provocatively titled Marry Him and Be Submissive.
—Lucetta Scaraffia, L’Osservatore Romano
“. . . a man is a man and a woman is a woman; a wife is a wife anda husband is a husband; a mother is a mother and a father is a
father: equal in dignity but necessarily (and providentially) different and complementary. This is for the brave Costanza, a wedding and
a marriage of love: like hers, one in which the wife is “Submissive” because she knows she is the strongest, who is able to support the
whole family”
—Gabriella Sartori, Avennire
“Send[s] a century of feminism crashing down in a matter of sentences . . .”
—Sarah Rainey, The Telegraph
