About this item

Everyone tells you marriage is hard, but no one tells you what to do about it. As journalist Jo Piazza began planning her own wedding she realized that American marriage traditions focus more on the perfect dress, the Instagram-worthy decorations, and the menu than on how to make a real, lasting, joy-filled commitment. What comes after the whirlwind romance and fairy-tale wedding? How do you create a marriage that lasts in a world where marriage is increasingly becoming obsolete? A travel editor, Jo finds herself in the unique position of being able to devote the first year of her marriage to exploring the rituals, customs, and traditions from other countries and cultures in an attempt to learn how to be (happily) married. With elegant prose, astute reporting and hilarious insight into the human psyche, this provocative book portrays Jo's journey around the globe in search of what a modern marriage should look like and shares the most effective advice from hundreds of real women and men on 5 continents.
