At the end of her bestselling memoir <i>Eat, Pray, Love,</i> <br/>Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe - a Brazilian-born man of<br/>Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met.<br/>Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other,<br/>but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally<br/>married. (Both survivors of difficult divorces. Enough said.) But<br/>providence intervened one day in the form of the U.S. government, who -<br/>after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing -<br/>gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe<br/>would never be allowed to enter the country again. <br/> <br/>Having been<br/>effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by<br/>delving completely into this topic, trying with all her might to<br/>discover (through historical research, interviews and much personal<br/>reflection) what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is.<br/>The result is<i> Committed </i>- a witty and intelligent contemplation<br/>of marriage that debunks myths, unthreads fears and suggests that<br/>sometimes even the most romantic of souls must trade in her amorous<br/>fantasies for the humbling responsibility of adulthood. Gilbert's<br/>memoir - destined to become a cherished handbook for any thinking<br/>person hovering on the verge of marriage - is ultimately a clear-eyed<br/>celebration of love, with all the complexity and consequence that real<br/>love, in the real world, actually entails.
