Spouse: The Truth about Marriage by Shobhaa DeHow marriages work and why they fail... Marriage is an adventure, says Shobhaa De, celebrity writer, devoted wife and mother of six. Its about trust, companionship, affection and sharing. Its also about learning to cope with your partners moods and eccentricities. Not to mention the delicate balancing act between parents, children, friends and a career, and the sometimes overpowering need to get away from it all. In this delightful book on societys most debated institution, Shobhaa De writes about how and why marriages work - or dont.
With her usual disregard for rules, she reinvents tradition and challenges old stereotypes, addressing all the issues that are central to most Indian marriages: the saas-bahu conundrum (how to escape the role-trap and enjoy each other), the need for honesty (arent some secrets better left secret?), the importance of romance (no, expressions of love are not unmanly!), and not any less important, how to recognize the warning signs in a hopeless relationship and run before its too late. Fun, savvy and, above all, pragmatic, this is the ultimate relationship book for all those who want to make the adventure of marriage last a lifetime.
Interspersed between them are beaming photographs of her children; a contented portrait with her husband; a busy, buzzing kitchen; an Irish setter running in and out The phone constantly rings with calls from her six kids four girls and two boys. Her conversation is an engaging mix of compelling anecdotes and strong views. Energy brims from the fine-boned, animated face. Why do you feel you are qualified to write a book on marriage?
