Nothing challenges priority more than a compulsion for sports. How to Hook Your Spouse is part autobiography and part guidebook for sustaining a marriage. Humorous stories illustrate the life-cycle of bonding with a sports-obsessive using fishing as central metaphor.Georgene Simon Drieshpoon is married to a retired physician who claims in his next life he wants to come back as a fishing guide. He chases the fish. She chases him. She’s been chasing him for forty-nine years.The author says, "e;We joke about compulsions. The term ‘fishing widow"e; says it all. The fishermen were not dead, just caught up in their priority. Parenthood changed my priority. It was during this period that my husband and I had our best fights. I was determined not to be a ‘fishing widow.’"e;While the author fished with her husband, she says, "e;I’m more like his pocket edition."e; Together they have explored the aura of fishing in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, the Bahamas, and Africa. She’s heard fishermen grumble that "e;women just don’t understand."e; She says, "e;The same can be said for the other side."e; This book is an attempt to humorously enlighten both genders.
