Is it a bad sign if they will not discuss why the marriage didn't work out?
What’s important for me to know when pursuing a relationship with a man who has been divorced?
There are people in both of our families who feel that I should try to work things out with my ex-husband and get back together, but that’s not what I am writing about. I am 40 years old, and have many friends who are divorced.
Doing so, it mashed together two prevalent publishing trends: the frank sex advice book, and Larry Wilde’s “official” ethnic joke books, which right up until 1986 or so taught Americans that the Russians took Warsaw by marching backwards and insisting to then Poles that they were actually retreating. It’s tough to tell what’s a joke and what’s hard-won advice.
If you are seeking marriage partner, then you should only be dating men who are also looking to get married.
This applies whether the man you might go out with has been married before or not. Don’t let the previous marital status of a potential suitor cloud your judgment. You won’t scare away the right guy by being up front and honest.
From the chapter “The Jewish Man and the Bedroom”: “You need to help him. And just like the writers over at Stormfront.com, they devote pages to a character they call “The Rich Jewish Man.” He is something of a money ninja: Okay, that last one is actually kind of funny. Is it elsewhere when they state “A nice Jewish boy’s sexual experiences begin after his first marriage”?
Shocking Detail: The book has not aged well, and to our more sensitive time much of it sounds mean spirited, especially its assumptions that the Jewish man is inevitably divorced, mother-fixated, anxiety driven, and hard to talk to about money. With it he gives you a whole new sexual experience.
