Every woman, old or young, married or single, planning to get married or not should read this book. The marriage statistics alone are worth it. But Gilbert's compelling narrative voice comes through in this follow-up, as it did in her first memoir Eat, Pray, Love .

This second memoir follows her research and self-exploration on the issue of marriage, as she and her husband-to-be, Phillipe, travel the world in exile after he is unofficially deported from the U.S. He will only be allowed to return if they get married, a thing they had previously vowed never to do.

In addition to coming to grips with a marriage forced on her by government regulation, Gilbert also explores motherhood and her decision never to have children.
