Summary

"I remember when I hit rock bottom. There I was with no makeup on, hadn’t showered, eating raw cookie dough out of the tube, hitting on the toothless bagger at the commissary, and ordering jewelry off the TV. And that was just my first day!"

Confessions of a Military Wife is an honest, witty, and often hilarious look at the life of the new-generation military wife. Mollie Gross learned the hard way to laugh instead of cry at what she could not control as a military spouse - and as she quickly discovered, nearly everything was out of her control!

A stand-up comedienne, public speaker, and wife of a Marine Corps officer, Mollie explores everything about the “issued” spouse, from deployment and the stress of having a husband in a combat zone to the realization that marriage changes when your husband returns home from war. Nothing is taboo or out-of-bounds in Confessions, including the “parties” military wives throw for themselves before hubby returns. (You’ll have to listen to the audiobook to find out about those!)

More than a million American servicemen have deployed to war over the last few years, which means the lives and lifestyles of military wives are now front and center in the public’s curiosity. How do they live? What is their day-to-day life like? How do they interact? How do they deal with weeks and months of separation? The answers will surprise (and in some cases, shock) you. 

Confessions teaches all women, whether civilian or military, that they can learn to find the funny side of anything by embracing the situation and changing their perspective. Now, they can do so with humor, levity, and a little wisdom.

Evocative and provocative, Confessions of a Military Wife is a can’t-stop-listening audiobook that will leave you laughing and crying at the same time.

About the author: Mollie Gross is a former Marine spouse, author, stand-up comedienne, and public speaker. She teaches audiences to “Handle it with Humor” - to learn how to laugh through life’s toughest challenges.

a guide book for wives of the miltary

although very funny in parts I found it more like a guidebook for military wives, clearly not of interest to me.
however the story Molly told of her life and strifes was very good and funny, its really aimed at ladies, but I continued with it and enjoyed it mostly

Terrible Narrator

Terrible narrator choice. The voice/pattern she uses makes it sound like military spouses are airheads, and the vast majority of us are not! I want to read the book but simply cannot listen to her read. I'll have to buy it printed.
