While searching for an answer, Marchisio looked for books that dealt with the topic of marriage, but was shocked to find that not many existed. The few he found were merely politically correct, cheerleader type books whose message was that marriage is tough, but if you stay positive and work hard at it, maybe you won’t end up in divorce. “Nonsense”
This book gives those blindly charging into the institution of marriage some much needed modern, realistic, honest and emotionally unattached insight. A humorous, lighthearted yet powerful book that tears back the warm, pink and rosy veil encompassing the traditional notions of marriage and introduces a vivid level of awareness to help differentiate reality from fantasy. Supported by full page quotes from people throughout history such as Will Rogers, Goethe, Voltaire, Alan King and others, along with thought provoking illustrations, the book challenges the outdated and traditional belief that marriage is necessary and that it is the “next step” in a relationship. It also offers a real, modern, emotionally, physically and financially safe alternative to marriage that even includes having children, if so desired.
The book is an easy read that serves as brakes on the runaway wagon of love and gives those contemplating marriage an opportunity to carefully evaluate their decision to marry and understand the effects being married will have on their lives, before they utter those life changing words, “I Do”.
Marchisio is neither a psychologist nor a marriage counselor. In fact, he fancies himself as a marriage “anti-counselor.”
