Rules started with Grandma; I was in my late teens.
"Find somebody whose bad habits you think you can live with," she said. That planted a seed; a lens to look through when evaluating relationships.
Life gave me a delightful growing-up playground to learn in... a sense of humor and... Six brothers and Dad, seven men, to "study."
Years later, I know how having those relationship rules made life easier for me; and turned out to be good for a happy marriage too.
I wrote this little book to pass them on--and the idea of making Life Rules for yourself. These are mine and a starting place for you. You, of course, will add and substitute your rules for mine. I wouldn't want it any other way. ... an independent streak runs in our souls.
Original title Relationship Rules of a Happy Woman--and they are. Their intended desire is happy, healthy lives--for all parties in a relationship--work, family, social, personal--making the most and best of this Life adventure we're in together.
It's a good thing. - Anne Wondra, WonderSpirit
