Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Iris Krasnow focuses us on real marriage. “The truth is that bliss may be there at dawn and gone by lunch,” she admits, “and there are as many times that you feel like saying ‘Screw you’ as you feel like saying ‘I love you.’” In this book, Krasnow leads us through all of it -- the bliss and the blunders -- and with her we journey to the heart of the mystery. It’s boring, confusing, sexy, stupid, hilarious, dark, and overwhelming; it’s marriage.

Through a series of interviews with those who have married, cheated, divorced, and remarried, Krasnow pieces out a shattered portrait of what we can expect from our vows. Each marriage is different, Krasnow shows us; some rest on friendship, while others crackle with sexual tension. But each is battered by a similar struggle. As remarried couples’ therapist Dr. Isaiah Zimmerman explains, “At the heart of most problems is anger that you aren’t getting what you think you are entitled to.” We struggle with marriage, says Zimmerman (and Krasnow), because that’s how we finally grow up.

Unlike The Surrendered Wife or The Rules for Marriage, Krasnow’s study never prescribes surefire hints to make partnership a breeze. Instead, Krasnow wanders among different kinds of marriages, offering us perspective and thoughtful reflection. That’s what’s moving about this book: Like marriage, it’s a container for divergent, warring perspectives that can never be totally resolved. It’s not easy, but it opens our eyes to the dark beauty of love. (Jesse Gale)

Denver Post
Krasnow writes with passion, elegance and humor about the satisfaction and ultimate joy of knuckling down to the gritty work of sustaining a marriage.
US News And World Report
Surrendering to Marriage is contrary to the "yes, dear" approach touted in the similarly titled The Surrendered Wife.
New Yorker Magazine
Krasnow does get to something that the other discontented-wives books don't; that marriage does not provide happiness, though it can often provide an environment in which to experience happiness.
Time Magazine
One book, The Rules for Marriage, will get a lot of attention. But the other, Surrendering to Marriage, is the one to read.
O The Oprah Magazine
Krasnow acknowledges all the temptations, all the pain, and still shows us that the long, gray corridors of our daily lives are in fact blessed places where we can, if we try, find our true happiness.

    Finally an instructional manual to a successful relationship!

    This book covers all of the good and bad elements of marriage. It depicts a true picture of what a "real" marriage is. Enough of the fairy tales and those happily ever afters, they just don't exist. Marriage is full of trials and tribulations, love and dislike, happiness and sadness, contentment and betrayal. Everyone, men and women, hetero- or homo-sexual entering into marriage or a committed relationship should read this book. Everyone who has been in a committed relationship or marriage for however long should read this book. Read it, highlight it, read it again. You will be happier, more fulfilled and at peace with your partner and your relationship.
