At the end of her successful memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe – Brazilian-Man born of Australian citizenship who had been living in Indonesia when they met.The resettlement in America, the couple swore an eternal fidelity to each other, but also sworn never, never, never in any case to get legally married.(Both survivors of difficult divorcesI’ve said enough.) But providence intervened one day, in the form of the U. S. government, which – after unexpectedly holding Felipe at an American border crossing, gave the couple a choice: either marry, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again.That he was effectively condemned to the sea, Gilbert tackled his fears, marriage, to plunge completely into this rubric, trying with all his strength to discover (through historical research, interviews and much personal reflection) that this stubbornly enduring old institution is in factThe result is Engaged an intelligent mind and contemplation of marriage that demystifies myths, unthreads fears and suggests that sometimes even the most romantic of souls must negotiate in her loving fantasies for the humility lesson of adult responsibility.Gilbert’s memoir – intended to become a valuable guide for anyone who is reflecting on the point of marriage – is, in the end, a clear idea of celebrating love, with all the complexity and consequence that true love in the real world really requires.
