Publisher Description

If you marry, you will regret it. If you do not marry, you will also regret it...

We are the ultimate social animal. Our intimate relationships are the most important thing in our life, often, more important than life itself—insofar as we would die for those we love. But at a time of unprecedented social and technological change, the path to the intimacy that we crave has been confused, leaving us more connected and yet more alone and uncertain than ever before. This book is intended as a thinking person's guide to marriage and its alternatives, and to human relationships and sexuality in general.

Even if you have already determined your destination, even if you have already set sail, this book should help you to navigate the storms and doldrums that lie ahead, and, more important still, to question the very purpose and value of your journey.

A tour-de-force: erudite, funny, and even wise. —Prof Anthony Synott, author of The Body Socialand Re-Thinking Men
