Dan Savage writes a memoir that's both deadly serious and delightfully entertaining about the greater issues of marriage equality and his own personal debate about whether to marry his partner of ten years. How thought-provoking this book will be for you depends greatly on how much thought you've already given to the issue of marriage equality in the United States. Savage reiterates many points that are tent poles of the pro-equality movement, but he also sneaks in a few new ideas and arguments about what marriage means to both straight and gay couples, how children factor into the mix and what society is forgetting to mention in the debate.

This is an easy read with delightful anecdotes and a false-ending that made me giggle aloud.
