Rajasekar KS, GM Marketing, Matrimony.com has turned into an author with the book titled, ‘How to Read Your Husband Like a Book’- a book that helps married women understand the inner mind of a husband and enriches their relationship. ‘How to Read Your Husband Like a Book’ is Rajasekar’s attempt to decode how men think and act in various situations. The intention is to help the newly married woman understand their “man” and enrich their relationship with this new understanding. You’re sure to have “aha” moments as you flip through it.
In a world where the husband-wife relationship is good fodder for stand-up comedy, this easy-to-read book offers fresh insight into the inner workings of a “husband’s mind”. Through humorous nuggets and simple illustrations, ‘How to Read Your Husband Like a Book’ explains how a husband ‘thinks’, what makes him ‘respond’ the way he does, his ‘reaction’ to certain situations that crop up in married life and what a wife can do to avoid friction and get her own way.
“I’ve always been intrigued by man-woman relationships. I’m married for 25 years now. The last eight years, I’ve been in the matchmaking industry with the Indian online matrimony leader, BharatMatrimony, where I spearheaded projects, including the launch of ‘happymarriages.com, India’s guide to a happy marriage’, the ‘Happy Marriage Workshops’ attended by over 30,000 people and a ‘Happy Couples’ program that included over 1500 interviews with newly married couples. So, I have enough experience and passion for the subject of my book,” said Rajasekar.
“Although I’ve been working on my book since 2015, the pandemic was the catalyst. The untold story of marital relationships suffering due to lack of breathing space and accentuation of a couple’s quirks, inadequacies during the unusual proximity, fuelled by the pandemic pushed me to complete the last bit and publish,” he added.

This is the perfect handbook to understand your husband, without getting into irksome arguments and discussions, an innovative way to put across a point effortlessly.
