When I saw this title, I just had to pick up this book. “So Why Have You Never Been Married? 10 Insights Into Why He Hasn’t Wed” by Carl Weisman is a truly fascinating look at the varying reasons behind the perennial bachelors we all know. What I found surprising were some of the recurring reasons…and they were NOT what I had always assumed! While the ‘playboy’ archetype was certainly present, it was not the overwhelming majority that I had assumed. Neither were most of these men anti-marriage or anti-love. Instead they are anti-mistake and anti-divorce and rather than suffer either of these states, they have remained in their bachelor status.
If you know an over 40 and never-been-married man and you’ve hesitated to subject him to your rabid curiosity, you should definitely read this book. If you’re a younger woman faced with an unwilling-to-commit significant other, you should read this book. If you are just starting out in the ‘dating game’, then you’ll want to read this book to get an idea of ‘their’ psyche vs. ‘our’ psyche. Different for sure, but always fascinating.
