    Book Summary

    In this book on society's debated institution, the author writes about how and why marriages work - or don't. With her disregard for rules, she challenges old stereotypes, addressing the issues that are central to most Indian marriages. It is the relationship book for all those who want to make the adventure of marriage last a lifetime.

    How marriages work and why they fail? Marriage is an adventure, says Shobhaa De, celebrity writer, devoted wife and mother of six. It's about trust, companionship, affection and sharing. It's also about learning to cope with your partner's moods and eccentricities. Not to mention the delicate balancing act between parents, children, friends and a career, and the sometimes overpowering need to get away from it all. In this delightful book on society's most debated institution, Shobhaa De writes about how and why marriages work - or don't. With her usual disregard for rules, she reinvents tradition and challenges old stereotypes, addressing all the issues that are central to most Indian marriages: the saas-bahu conundrum (how to escape the role-trap and enjoy each other), the need for honesty (aren't some secrets better left secret?), the importance of romance (no, expressions of love are not unmanly!), and not any less important, how to recognize the warning signs in a hopeless relationship and run before it's too late. Fun, savvy and, above all, pragmatic, this is the ultimate relationship book for all those who want to make the adventure of marriage last a lifetime. read less...
