Making a mixed marriage work can be difficult. We usually think of mixed marriages as between people of different religions or races. However, class can be just as much an obstacle to a happy relationship. Class differences are often not acknowledged or seen as a problem. This is particularly true in the USA, where we like to pretend there are no class differences, only those of wealth. This book will help resolve the class issues in your relationship. Views toward such things as money and family differ greatly between classes. Appropriate ways of acting at family events or parties may differ greatly, as well.
If you and your spouse can’t understand why your views are so different on spending money, for example, you should read this book. And if you don’t understand why your wife gets so upset when you throw bail for your loser brother-in-law again, you need this book. ( )
