"An unexpected delight. Honest and darkly comic... the truth can be liberating."
-The New York Times

"Marry Him is surprisingly, unnervingly convincing."
-O, The Oprah Magazine

Funny and relatable... anything but antiromance."
-People magazine
"Marry Him shows women how to find true happiness when seeking love--by giving them a new way to look at the world. Gottlieb manages to be hilarious yet thought-provoking, light-hearted yet profound on the questions of: Why do we fall in love? What qualities really matter in a marriage? For what reasons do we make the decisions that affect our whole lives? Marry Him will set people talking for years."
-Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project

Throughout her thirties, journalist Lori Gottlieb had noticed that modern dating seemed to be getting ever more complicated and statistics backed that up: more people who wanted a partner were having trouble finding one. But when Gottlieb found herself single and wondering why she hadn't found The One, the question became deeply personal. Nowadays women don't need to marry, but many still want to. What was getting in the way?

Combining interviews with researchers, experts, and hundreds of men and women both married and single with cutting edge research on modern love, marriage, and what makes for happy, lasting relationships, Marry Him is an eye-opening, funny, and always truthful in-depth examination of modern relationships and a call to arms about having higher standards about what really matters.
