Committed- A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage

Recommended Posts

I just finished reading the book Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the best-seller Eat, Pray, Love. I really enjoyed the raw honesty of her 1st book so I thought I'd give this one a try. LOVED IT. Committed picks right up where Eat, Pray, Love ended, with her madly in love with a man she met in Indonesia. They swore to be committed forever, but to never marry, as they both had gone through painful divorces.


Without ruining the book, they basically have to get married due to some immigration concerns, and the majority of the book involves her making peace with the institution of marriage before she enters it again. I think it has some intelligent, witty, refreshing, and honest things to say about marriage, and love for that matter.


I highly recommend it if any of you girls are looking for a must-read:) Anyone else read it? What are your thoughts?

I read eat, love, pray over christmas and loved it too :) I've been holding out on buying committed because I don't have much time to read during the school semester and was hoping it would come out in paperback (i don't know why I like it better in paperback, but I love carrying my books with me everyone and its easier in paperback :)).... Glad to hear a good review on it, i just may have to go out and get it in the next few days!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
