1. How did you come up with the title?
It’s a sequel to the Average American Male. I knew I wanted to keep the “Average American” part and now that the main character is married, it seemed like a logical progression to call it “The Average American Marriage.”

2. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Marriage in the modern world can’t exist in the same form it has for the past hundred years. Monogamy and acceptance of a decreased sexual relationship with your spouse over time are things of the past.

3. How much of the book is realistic?
There are no fantasy or science fiction elements of the book so one hundred percent of it is realistic in that sense. If you’re asking me subjectively how much of the book is realistic, you’d have to ask every person who reads the book to answer that question for themselves.

4. If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book?

5. What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Forcing myself to think like a married man with kids.

6. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I don’t know if I learned anything, but I did reaffirm my personal decision to never have children.
