About the Book:
We hear plenty about whether or not to get married, but less about what it takes to stay married. Ada Calhoun’s funny, poignant, personal essays explore the bedrooms of modern coupledom for a nuanced discussion of infidelity, existential anxiety, and the other obstacles to staying together. Both realistic and openhearted, Wedding Toasts I’ll Never Give offers a new way to think about marriage — as a brave, tough, creative decision to stay with someone for the rest of your life.
