A witty, thought-provoking celebration of why marriage still matters-and how to make yours work-from the author of The Art of Conversation. Today we no longer get married for the reasons our grandparents did: because our families say so, because we must marry to leave home, to have sex, to have financial security. So in this modern age, why marry at all?
The Art of Marriage seeks to answer this question, in an enchanting guided tour of the three-legged race that is married life. With anecdotes from history, the latest research, and insights about couples who stayed the course, Blyth offers entertaining advice on how to enjoy a successful marriage.
