'Secret Lives Of Wives': Iris Krasnow Talks Marriage Secrets On 'Today' Show

Huffington Post Blogger Iris Krasnow stopped by the "Today" show Thursday morning to talk about her new book, "The Secret Lives of Wives: Women Share What It Really Takes To Stay Married," which hit shelves last week.

Krasnow dished on her shocking findings, culled from interviews with over 200 wives: “About 70% of those wives have considered leaving their spouses once a month if not every six months."

The book also includes over 60 confessionals from long-time wives and unconventional tips for spicing up your marriage -- and keeping it intact.

“What I tried to do with this book was to unleash women to know that there’s no gold standard marriage towards which they can aspire,” said Krasnow, who has been married for 23 years herself. “There is no happily ever after all the time.”
