Reviews

"[Paul's] observations evoke a winning combination of laugh, wince and nod."--The New York Times Book Review

"Paul serves up a number of fresh and valuable aperçus not just about the nature of marriage today but about the way young men and women have come to see and understand themselves in our highly competitive, status-driven, 'post-feminist' world. She compellingly articulates the dreams and visions of a generation." --The Washington Post

"Pamela Paul's smart, sensitive, and informative investigation of drive-through marriages ripples with unsettling insights into contemporary society. . . . An important book for Gen Xers and Boomers alike." --Nancy F. Cott, Jonathan Trumbull Professor of American History, Harvard University, and author of Public Vows: A History of Marriage and the Nation
