In 2010, Fawn was a hard-working businesswoman who loved her husband and cherished their marriage. As a happily married woman, she noticed a disturbing trend. Marriage and wives were caricatured in nearly every form of media, and marriage was getting a bad rap. Frustrated by the constant negative press, Fawn set out to prove all wives aren’t miserable, most husbands don’t cheat, and happy marriages do still exist. HappyWivesClub.com was born.
She began writing and posting her thoughts about marriage and shared them with a few friends and one of her sisters. They, then, shared them with friends and family members. The Happy Wives Club was established.
While publishing words of wisdom and appreciation for marriage, she set a challenge to build a community of 1,000,000 “happy wives” all over the world. After she began to build this community of women, she eventually traveled to 12 countries on six continents and interviewed couples or wives that had been married 25 years or more.
In Happy Wives Club, readers join Fawn on this exciting, exotic trip and meet everyday women whose marriage secrets span cultures. Walk the streets of Mauritius, the historic ruins in Italy, and the vistas of New Zealand and Australia and go from Cape Town to London, Manila to Buenos Aires, Winnipeg to Zagreb, while hearing their stories, witnessing their relationships, and enjoying new found inspiration in marriage.
