Is The Meaning of Marriage exclusively for the married? No, quite the opposite. Surprisingly, this book is equally beneficial for the singles out there, especially since singles can alternately overly fear or idolize marriage. Consider this excerpt directed at singles:
When one person says to another, “I love you, but let’s not ruin it by getting married,” that person really means, “I don’t love you enough to close off all my options.”
This is an eye-opening, perspective-setting book that I highly recommend especially in our modern consumer-driven culture, and its assumptions about “soul” mates, romance, self-fulfillment, divorce, and cohabitation.
Even if you are long-time wedded, this book will be beneficial to you and your spouse. The Meaning Of Marriage makes a perfect engagement, bridal shower, or wedding gift.
