    One thought on “The Marriage Book: Centuries of Advice, Inspiration, and Cautionary Tales from Adam and Eve to Zoloft”

    1. I meant only to browse--and it's very good for browsing--and the hours passed. Such an entertaining romp through marriage. I wish I'd had it before I wed and during. Since I'm still wed to the guy at least I'll have this reference for the second half of our adventure.

    2. This was a marriage book unlike any I’ve ever read before. It was not your classic self-help/make-my-marriage-better marriage book… but rather a compilation of all things “marriage”… or as the author calls it, an “Anthology.” It was actually really funny, interesting, and unique to read as it encompassed everything marriage from subjects A-Z… from “Anniversaries” to “Sex” to “Work” and everything and anything in between. I say it was funny, because there was a LOT of [...]

    3. I first want to say, this is a book with excellent sources so it would make a good reference for all who are married or plan to be. That said, I think you should know that is all there is to it. There are sources, comments, citations, quotes, from all manner of books and even the bible. In between is commentary from the authors. Their outlook on marriage struck me as a bit cynical or dated. I have been married over 22 years myself. I think of my husband as my best friend and so I have similar vi [...]

    4. Funny, wise, provocative and essential words about why marriage works and why it doesn't. These authors have scoured literature and pop culture and come up with remarkable insights and history. The book is beautiful, a remarkable read, and an essential for anyone who's ever thought about marriage.

    5. A big fan of Grunwald and Adler's other books, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the galleys of this one. I loved it--so much insight, so much humor, so much complexity and a lot of wisdom for anyone who's interested in marriage. Meaning, just about all of us.

    6. Not so much a read-through novel as an anthology of various articles, quotes, etc. containing observations, jokes, and insights about the institution of marriage. They are arranged into chapters by subject, on everything from expectations to divorce to devotion. I saw some extremely touching letters from writers to their spouses, as well as short one-line jokes such as, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, for there are plenty of others." There were checklists such as one on how to avoid a [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book through a giveaway. It is a long book organized alphabetically by topic (divorce, honeymoon, etc.) and not really something you'd sit and slog all the way through. Seems better suited as a coffee table book to be picked up and flipped through to read a few entries here and there. I thought the authors did a nice job of trying to track down the original sources of various quotes and anecdotes and provided interesting examples of former (sometimes cringe-inducing) s [...]

    8. This is a book you should keep on your shelf and go to for wedding toasts and advice to friends whose marriage is in trouble, or someone who is considering marriage. It contains quotes from everything from the Christian Bible to Willie Nelson, ancient wisdom, homilies, and new ideas on the subject. It i arranged from A to Z: Adam and Eve to Zoloft. Appropriate somehow.

    9. Just not what I thought it was going to be, sadly. Each entry is super super long. Instead of little blurbs, it's long ass entries on a few select things that may possibly relate to marriage. Good coffee table book maybe, but not so much if you are trying to build up and maintain your healthy marriage. Not in my opinion.

    10. This is my go-to wedding gift. It's wise and witty and wonderful. I think if a couple were to take one quotation or small essay a week to share, dialogue, and journal about, it would take about 17.5 years to work through the entire book. And, I predict, they would still be married.

    11. Interesting read on subjects related to marriage over the centuries. If nothing else, this book will show you how much improved our societal attitudes are today than in previous centuries, or even decades.

    12. Not marriage advice but anecdotes or musings on alphabetical topics. a lot of inchresting stuff. AdmittedlyI skipped a few spots.

    13. It was interesting to see how attitudes toward marriage and one's spouse have changed (or not changed!) over the years and to read quotes and advice from various historical authors on different aspects of marriage. Some funny, some condescending, some thought-provoking.
