How to Be Married

I will admit, I put reading this book off. I am not married, and being married is not particularly high on my list of priorities now. Reading an entire book about marriage felt kind of… miserable? Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. Piazza writes in a way that is realistic, self-deprecating, and funny. My issue with everyone’s idealization of marriage and “the one” is that everything – movies, books, etc. makes getting married feel like the ultimate goal in life, but then what happens afterward!? What I liked about this book was the realistic depiction of love (she writes, lovingly, about how awful her honeymoon was), and also all of the fun little bits of trivia woven throughout.
