This book was a bit depressing. The title is misleading. The author comes across as a fatalist and looks for ways to sabotage her relationships. I felt she was warped in her way of thinking about marriage as the beginning of the end of a meaningful relationship. I understand how she came to feel as she did with growing up as divorce being the norm, but even in the end, when she finally married after being with him for 11 years she comes to realize that she only agreed to marry him because she thought he was going to die. That just seems wrong.
