Format: Paperback
I am a GKC fan but I avoided this book because basically is sounded boring and dated. I was wrong. As usual Chesterton gets to the root of the question by thinking about it the right way. Before asking "why people get divorced?" he asks "what is marriage and why would anyone seek it?"

He builds a solid reasoned foundation for vows and for the family itself.

I greatly enjoyed this book and it made me think larger and deeper of my family and my marriage.

I'm normally a big fan of the venerable GK Chesterton, and I did enjoy the read, but I don't think this series of essays was his most coherent work. Chesterton is known for his clever turns of phrases, but in these essays, it felt like he was concentrating more on the clever turn of phrase than actually making his point. To be honest, although I think he's generally not in favor of divorce (as the title would indicate), I would be hard pressed to come to that conclusion based on the text alone if the titles were all redacted.

If you're looking to read the "best of" Chesterton (and he has many great works), you might safely leave this one off your list.
