Marry Him: the case for settling for Mr Good Enough

Lori Gottlieb

When Lori Gottlieb found herself forty and still single, she came to an uncomfortable realisation.

If so many of her friends were very happily married to ‘good enough’ guys, the type of men who might not make you weak in the knees but made great partners and fathers, maybe she had been looking for the wrong man. Could her Mr Right have been, well, right in front of her all along?

Funny, confronting and very very real, Marry Him is Lori Gottlieb’s account of her search for a partner and the adjustments she had to make to her own expectations in order to find happiness.

Praise for Lori Gottlieb
andMarry Him

‘A must-read for single women in their late twenties and thirties… Gottlieb is onto something, nailing critical reasons so many single women miss out on marriage and motherhood.’

‘Gottlieb’s advice contradicts the romantic message of a million love songs and Valentine’s cards and chick flicks. But given the perennial shortage of perfect men, she’s got a point.’
