A crash course in commitment: one couple and forty dates that could make or break their marriage before the wedding.
Picking a partner is life’s most important decision, but how are we supposed to make it? Being in love is a good start, but the issues that ultimately wreck marriages—money and monogamy, career and kids—are hard to gauge until you’re actually hitched. So after a few years of dating, Jill Andres and Brook Silva-Braga built The Marriage Test to confirm their compatibility before saying “I do.”
Forty revealing challenges simulate the issues that could tank or strengthen their union. For a month, they swap credit cards, for a weekend they borrow a baby. An embarrassing lunch with their exes tests their trust issues. Sexual gymnastics are required to recreate TV love scenes. From a night of speed dating to 24 hours handcuffed together, the crazy, awkward, emotional trials fling them headfirst into assorted marital minefields.
Is their love strong enough to weather real life? Only forty dates will tell...

"I thought this was the smartest way to prepare for marriage that I could have ever thought of." Lori Leibovich, Editor in Chief, RealSimple.com
"A 240-page love letter... Someone, somewhere is going to option this as a romantic comedy." The Washington Post
"A really charming, engaging read. In part it's because of the format, which takes each date and explains the setup, then gives readers both Jill's and Brook's perspectives...They undid nearly every reservation I had about the experiment. For starters, the dates are more revealing than you'd expect, and the couple is much more brutally honest about their shortcomings than I expected." Jezebel
"A fun, inspirational read that left me contemplating what it means to be close to my significant other... When I turned the last pages of the book, I felt uplifted and hopeful about putting effort into strengthening a relationship." WriteBrave
