Overview

In Surrendering to Marriage Krasnow offers a raw and penetrating portrait of modern marriage and the backbreaking work required to make it last. With funny, sexy, shocking stories of real marriages, real affairs, and real divorces, Surrendering to Marriage moves far beyond a how-to manual on twenty-five ways to make your marriage hot again; Krasnow has written a how-to book on surrendering to the reality that even the best of marriages cause as much misery as happiness.

Editorial Reviews

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.
