Committed: A Love Story by Elizabeth Gilbert: My honest thoughts on the book’s plot, characters, and overall impact.

The #1 New York Times bestselling follow-up to Eat, Pray, Love–an intimate and erudite celebration of love—from the author of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.

At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship. The couple vowed eternal fidelity but swore to never legally marry due to their past experiences with bad divorces. However, their plans were upended when the U.S. government detained Felipe and forced them to choose between marriage and permanent separation.

Faced with this ultimatum, Gilbert decided to confront her fears of marriage. She embarked on a journey of historical research, interviews, and personal reflection to understand the institution of matrimony. Through this process, she explored compatibility, infatuation, fidelity, family tradition, social expectations, and the risks of divorce.

With her trademark wit, intelligence, and compassion, Gilbert examines the complexities of marriage. Committed is a clear-eyed celebration of love, capturing its real-world consequences and responsibilities.
