Peter Davidson’s book, Marital Advice to my Grandson, Joel

This is paid content, with my own personal opinion mixed in. I approached Mr. Davidson to share his book for my deep belief in the value of family and wisdom that our elders can provide us. We just have to open our mind to hear what they’re truly saying. I hope you’ll check out this book on Amazon. Affiliate links included. 

When Peter Davidson’s grandson, Joel, got engaged, he decided to jot down a few words of marital advice for him, based on his vast experience as a husband.  Then Davidson thought, why share this wisdom with only one person when he could share it with the whole world.  So, Davidson started a blog, listing new marital advice every week.  As the popularity of the blog grew, people suggested that the material should be turned into a book. The result is MARITAL ADVICE TO MY GRANDSON, JOEL: How to be a husband your wife won’t throw out of the window in the middle of the night.

Why I’m Featuring Peter Davidson’s Book

I recently went through a pretty bad break up. The relationship itself had a lot of challenges. With that being said, I’ve grown up with a handful of people who I admire for being married many many years. I remember talking to my Great Gram about her marriage to my Great Grampa, and honestly? They were a part of my life up well into their 90’s so I learned a lot from my Great Grandmother. I also have a couple of aunts who’ve been married quite a long time and deal with quite a lot on the inside that I am sure I have no idea about. I admire long-term marriages, those two people who seem to just respect, love and remain committed to their vows forever. I think that it’s wonderful Mr. Davidson wanted to share his wisdom about marriage and how to be a husband that your wife won’t throw out with the world. This book is being featured because of its family values, personal connection and belief that we can all be better in our relationship if we’re open to hearing the wisdom of those who’ve already experienced what we’re walking into.

About MARITAL ADVICE TO MY GRANDSON, JOEL: How to be a husband your wife won’t throw out of the window in the middle of the night

The book provides an informative, upbeat, humorous look at married life that any single, engaged, or married person can relate to and will find insightful and fun to read.  Advice to Joel, and to any man, includes:  make sure you buy a roll of electrical tape before you volunteer to do the vacuuming-and why, how to deal with your wife’s steely-eyed, clinched-jaw scowl, known as “The Look,” how to answer your wife’s questions such as, “Does this dress make my ass look big?,” the warning that your mouth will get you into a whole lot more trouble than your Willy ever will, and how to create the world’s most powerful anniversary card for your wife.

Virtually all of the material in the book is presented in the form of upbeat stories, scenarios, and examples.  This is not the type of advice that you’ll find in a textbook on marriage or in a book on marital relations written by some psychiatrist. This is the real stuff for real people.

  1. this seems like a really interesting read! i’ll have to check it out sometime! thanks for bringing it to my attention!

  2. I’m cracking up right now. LOL! I would love to read this and SHOW my husband that I’m reading this. Thank you very much for sharing. 🙂

  3. This sounds like a really funny book to read. I like how it is set out to be upbeat and humorous instead of really textbook, I do enjoy a book like that.

  4. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read the title of the book but it seems like a funny one! I’ll be sure to check it out, thank you for sharing.
    I admire long marriages as well and you’re so lucky to have known and learnt from your Great Grandmother.

  5. sounds like an interesting read ! I will try to pick it up and read it myself , so far my marital help was the 5 languages of love book

  6. The relationships have become lot more demanding and full of commitment. I loved the way this book has emphasized on the relations. Shall definitely give it a read

  7. I never heard about this book or the author before. thank you for bringing it to my attention. it looks interesting and fun to read

  8. I think it so important to give advice to help relationships and marriages last. This book sounds really good. I love that it is written by someone who isn’t a professional. I will have to buy it and read it this summer.

  9. I definitely will have to check out this book. The wisdom and advice I’ve gained from my grandparents is like nothing else. I think we could all stand to learn from their wisdom!

  10. Wow! I wanna read this with my husband. Don’t get me wrong, my husband is a cool and affectionate guy and we love these readings or shows or video clips about marriage that are humorous but still teach us lessons. We love learning about each other and to make our marriage more satisfying.

  11. What an interesting book. I would love to know what kind of advise he offers in this book. Talking to elders who have survived many years of marriage are the best ones to get advise from.

  12. With so many people wanting it to be a book, it sounds like the advice being given are valuable. I have to agree with you as well, I too admire people with long-term marriages!

  13. Married 36 years here and still going strong. I like to hear stories from great grandparents and grandparents they have a life of living and knowledge to share. Some marriages work some don’t it is what it is.

  14. We’ve been married for a long time and it’s often difficult but so worthwhile. Always keeping a sense of humor about life helps.

  15. I wonder if my husband would read a book like this. I know we both have things we struggle with. Yesterday I wanted to chuck my husband out the window because he looked in the pantry and said we had nothing to eat after I went to the store. The reality of what he said, is everything he was looking at had to be prepared and he didn’t want to prepare it or he wanted me to make it for him and of course we started to argue. My husband requires things he can microwave, not tend to. Anyway…we argued, we made up and now I’m shopping a little differently this week.

  16. I will have to check this out. We’ve been married for 11 years and although we have lots of ups and downs I feel like we could both benefit for more marital reading and encouragement/advice.
