Publisher's Summary

If half of all cars bought in America each year broke down, there would be a national uproar. But when people suggest that maybe every single marriage doesn't look like the next and isn't meant to last until death, there's nothing but a rash of proposed laws trying to force it to do just that.

The New I Do, therapist Susan Pease Gadoua and journalist Vicki Larson take a groundbreaking look at the modern shape of marriage to help listeners open their minds to marrying more consciously and creatively. Offering actual models of less-traditional marriages, including everything from a parenting marriage (intended for the sake of raising and nurturing children) to a comfort or safety marriage (where people marry for financial security or companionship), the audiobook covers unique options for couples interested in forging their own paths.

With advice to help listeners decide what works for them, The New I Do acts as a guide to thinking outside the marital box and the framework for a new debate on marriage in the 21st century.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Preaching to the choir but I like it

Simple overview of various setups. Some references on where to go for a deeper dive. It's a taste of these alt marriages with mostly clearly good advice.

The basic premise is that you should deep dive discuss and plan out what you want your marriage to look like. And to let you know, lots of people do it the way you want to do it, and they do it successfully. Look at all these models that work tweak and craft on your own. Build a marriage that's right for you.

I wish there were more everything. But all in all I 5* this book. Thanks for doing the research and writing it out.
