9780452287631: The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family

Dan Savage’s mother wants him to get married. His boyfriend, Terry, says “no thanks” because he doesn’t want to act like a straight person. Their six-year-old son DJ says his two dads aren’t “allowed” to get married, but that he’d like to come to the reception and eat cake. Throw into the mix Dan’s straight siblings, whose varied choices form a microcosm of how Americans are approaching marriage these days, and you get a rollicking family memoir that will have everyone—gay or straight, right or left, single or married—howling with laughter and rethinking their notions of marriage and all it entails.

From the Back Cover:

"Hilarious, heartfelt."
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"As funny as David Sedaris’s essay collections, but bawdier and more thought-provoking."
Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

"Most of all, a book about creating and appreciating family."
Seattle Times

"I think America would be a better place if everyone on every side of the gay marriage debate would read this book."
—Ira Glass, host of the public radio show This American Life

"The strongest argument here, which [Savage] brilliantly plays down, is that family means everything to these people: married, not married, blended, gay, straight, whatever."
The Washington Post
