Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
The true story of a marriage (not really), a lovable and relentless mother, a six-year old who says his parents cannot get married (but wants to go to the reception), a partner who doesn’t want to act like a straight person, and the author, who has written a hilarious and poignant memoir about making "The Commitment."

There is no hotter issue than gay marriage in the culture-war debate, and Dan Savage, one of America’s most outspoken and beloved columnists, takes it on and makes it personal in this rollicking memoir of coming to terms with the very public act of marriage. What he discovers will make readers—gay or straight, right or left, single or married—howl with laughter as well as rethink their notions of marriage and all that it entails.


Review:
"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
