At the end of her bestselling memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever under any circumstances get legally married. (Both were survivors of previous horrific divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which - after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at the American border crossing - gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. In this sequel to her best-selling memoir, Gilbert looks for guidelines historically and internationally as she reflects how to approach this institution differently her second time around.
