A recovering divorce daydreamer who once wanted her husband to drop dead so badly that she planned every aspect of his funeral, Alisa Bowman writes and speaks about the side of marriage and parenting that few people ever talk about. In her syndicated blog projecthappilyeverafter.com, she captivates readers by making the unmentionable mentionable. From bikini waxes to erotica, romance instruction manuals to second honeymoons, and the silent treatment to power struggles (both with 2 year olds and 42 year olds), she masterfully blends the helpful with the hilarious.
Her articles and essays have appeared in national magazines such as Better Homes & Gardens, Womenâs Health, and American Baby, large websites such as Yahoo! Shine and Glamour.com, as well as various newspapers. Sheâs been a guest on radio and television news shows and has been interviewed by national online and print magazines such as First, Redbook, Pregnancy, cnn.com and iparenting.com.Â

Just because we're married does not mean we share the same brain. Our spouses cannot read our minds. When you want something, ask for it--out loud.
Sex is an important ingredient to a happy marriage. A sexless marriage is a symptom that something is wrong.
Withholding sex gets you nowhere. Rewarding him with sex gets you a happy marriage.
