Goin' to the Chapel: Dreams of Love, Realities of Marriage

Synopsis

"Goin' to the Chapel is the first book to explore young women's dreams and expectations and compare them to the reality of their later married lives. Charlotte Mayerson, a writer, editor, and poet, traveled across the country talking to women ages twenty-six to sixty-nine from varied religious and ethnic backgrounds. The women she interviewed speak candidly, in voices that are poignant and funny, about sex, children, career, money, and the marital deals they've made. Their stories, coupled with Mayerson's thoughtful and sympathetic analysis, provide a unique, very personal insight into how women view their married lives. Her findings will be stimulating and helpful to people thinking about marriage - both before and after the fact." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
