In fact, marriage rates have been declining for years and the percentages of never married young adults has reached a record low of 47 percent. With more women in the workforce, sharp increases in cohabitation, single parenthood, out of wedlock childbirth and skyrocketing divorce rates, fewer women than ever opt to tie the knot.Timely and relevant, Don't Say I Do! challenges the institution of marriage as the first choice for women in the postmodern era. It reveals that the rules of the game have changed drastically; our lifestyles have loosened and become hectic. It will inspire women to think for themselves seriously consider alternatives for achieving satisfying, rewarding lives and reclaim their strength in today's changing world....

    I’m giving a copy of Don’t Say I Do! as a Christmas gift to all of my female grad school friends. How many times have we joked about how often our parents ask if we’ve found someone yet? No, we haven’t found “someone,” and, actually, we’re not looking!Finally, a passionate, informed, forward-thinking book exists that shows things as they really are. Women are not saying “I do” as often, yet the cultural myth of marriage persists. Here in this book we have a framework for what the new era looks like and the myriad relationship options available to us. Hats off to writer Orna Gadish for exposing the old school ways and suggesting that in our postmodern era, the institution of marriage is perhaps a thing of the past.

    It would not have taken much to get me to like a book titled "Don't Say I Do." I mean, I'm already pretty much there; you don't have to convince me, really.But this book was BAD. It was cursory, a little condescending, poorly written, and rested on assumptions that were not examined. And I agreed with most of the assumptions - I think - but they're not givens, and they need a little defense, yo! Not to mention that it reads like it was written fifty years ago. I mean, it's 2012; do you really need to keep repeating that a woman "doesn't need a man"? And what is this crap about men and women being "wired" differently? That's even MORE offensive coming from someone who is ostensibly making a feminist argument.What I WANT to read is about how women still subconsciously ACT like they need a man, despite consciousness that they don't - how they wait for a man to get home to reach something on high, when a stepstool would do the trick, or how they "get the men" to lift heavy things - even when that means getting the 12 year old boy instead of the fully grown woman. What I want to read about is what happened between the 60s and now - when I was hanging out with a group of women my age recently, it came out that almost none of our parents had had traditional proposals, and yet most of these women not only want to get married but want to be proposed to. What I want to read about are meaningful statistics about the division of housework in marriage and unmarried cohabitation, both queer and straight, and some thoughtful theories about what's going on with it. What I want are words for the difficult to explain reluctance I feel when I think about marriage. And, actually, I know I can get at least that last bit just by perusing around some radical feminist blogs, but I didn't actually get it from this book.I couldn't even finish this one, and it's really too bad.

    Don't Say I Do! is an excellent book, very encouraging for single women. If you are looking for the perfect gift for your friend or daughter give her this book. Let her know you’ll support her decision to not embrace antiquated relationship ideas. Choice is one of the best gifts on offer, and women have more power now, than perhaps ever, to choose their destiny. Marriage is one of the choices, but not the best solution for today's women. According to the writer, women can lead successful and happy lives as singles and unmarried women with or without relationships, with no obligation to sign anything or pathetically commit for good.

    One of the best books written on the topic of wedding today! Highlights the uselessness and incompetence of marriage in a world where divorce and cheating have become so widespread. Empowers women and explains how they can be accomplished and realize themselves without a marital contract. Asks tough questions and answers them in a way that leaves you pondering your current state, and questioning commons and socially accepted beliefs. Plus discusses the benefits of staying unmarried (single or divorced) and gives you the truths about why marriage has become obsolete. In no way a light read but well worth your effort!!!

    Great concept and wonderfully written book that can entourage you to make the best out of your life as a single woman. This book is a wake up call to all women who believe in marriage as the holly grail. "A joyful life is an individual creation that cannot be copied from a recipe" and since marriage is a well recognized, although obsolete, recipe, women should not buy into this concept without questioning it first, and this is exactly what this book does so wonderfully!

    Here is my review in my Spanish Blog: http://bit.ly/Pe2wvUThis book is a compilation of several testimonies of women that for one reason or the other ended up not getting marriend and later on discovered that life was still possible. Duh. Nothing enthusiastic enough to create a whole new world pro-single-women movement. Really.
