Marriage Material Book Review:

A London graphic designer is suddenly forced to take over his South Asian family’s convenience store in this “hugely enjoyable” novel (The Sunday Express). “Sathnam Sanghera’s witty first novel chronicles three generations of a Punjabi Indian family in England. After his father dies, Arjan Banga, a graphic designer in London, returns to the dreary West Midlands to help run the family convenience store. The move causes tension with his white fiancée, Freya, whom his mother regards with passive-aggressive disapproval. Arjan must explain to customers that ‘as a Sikh I was not expected to marry my cousin or join Al Qaeda’ and smile politely at their interpretations of his name (‘Mind if I call you Andy?’). Torn between familial duty and the freedom he enjoys in London, he gains unlikely clarity from his dimwitted friend Ranjit—a pot-smoking devotee of Steven Seagal movies, Xbox and hip-hop. Arjan’s woes are comic, but the novel’s depth is evident as it sheds light on the economic and political struggles of immigrants.” —The New York Times From an author whose work has been shortlisted for Costa and PEN Awards, this novel about a man trapped between British and Punjabi culture is “filled with details of the lives of Sikhs from the late ’60s to the riots of 2011. The divisions within the Sikh population are poignantly and comically captured in the protests against the Wolverhampton Transport Department’s ban on turbans” (Los Angeles Review of Books). “Sanghera’s precise, hilarious rendition of voices and cultural details is the signal pleasure of a novel rich in humor, history, and heart.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Marriage Material Book Review:

This book, Marriage Material: How I Found my Husband, is the story of how two very different souls found themselves and fell in love. Chronicled through the pages is the long, often tortured journey of Deisy and Keith and how they overcame adversity to forge a new life together. One question that it definitely answers is that, indeed, opposites do attract! The book touches on the challenges faced by the author as she journeyed towards love. She narrates how she found the person destined for her in a place where she least expected to see him. The Dominican-born esthetics expert and writer also touches on how difficult it truly is to be away from loved ones, especially during very special moments in life. She got married without any of the most important people in her life, and draws a parallel with the current pandemic situation affecting so many planned weddings. Moreover, her book delves deeper into love, relationships, and marriage. She takes pride in the fact that she and her husband have been successful at keeping their love alive through never-ending hard work while building a successful spa business in Los Angeles. Through her book, Deisy shares some of the lessons that she has learned from dating, life, love, and from her own marriage. So, for the doubters or cynics of love - or for those who say “I’ll never find the right person” - this book provides plenty of hope. For those fearful of taking that next step forward, a reading of this book illustrates how risk-taking can pay dividends. And for those stuck in unfulfilling relationships, it illustrates how years of chronic domestic mental abuse can take its toll when unrecognized and untreated.

Marriage Material Book Review:

Arjan Banga is forced to leave London to help his lonely mother run Bains Stores, their family’s provincial corner shop. But, it’s also a return to all that he tried to leave behind: narrow worldviews and post-industrial decline—and Singhfellows, a desi pub that defines itself by a religion that officially rejects drinking. But, his mother is adamant to keep the store open, forcing Arjan to work with her, reassess his relationship with his gori fiancé and discover his family’s silent history: his aunt’s elopement, his mother’s marriage to a lower-caste man, and his family’s strange relationship with their desi neighbours, the Dhandas, whose macho heir can’t stop listening to Malkit Singh and declaring: ‘Am just gonna bun dis spliff.’ The story of modern Britain as seen through the windows of an English shop with a big Punjabi heart, Marriage Material is the humorous chronicle of finding love as a desi in England—and of English desis forging and celebrating a betwixt identity that is neither here nor there.

The Material Culture of Sex Procreation and Marriage in Premodern Europe Book Review:

This interdisciplinary anthology takes as its starting point the belief that, as the material grounds of lived experience, material culture provides an avenue of historical access to women's lives, extending beyond the reaches of textual evidence. Studies here range from utilitarian tools used in Late Roman abortion to sacred, magical or ritual objects associated with sex, procreation, and marriage in the Renaissance. Together the essays demonstrate the complex relationship between language and object, and explore the ways in which objects become forms of communication in their own right, transmitting both rather specific messages and more generalized social and cultural values.

How To Determine If Your Girlfriend Is Marriage Material Or Your Future Ex wife How To Find Out If Your Girlfriend Is A Sociopath Or Psychopath What Makes A Marriage Long Lasting Between A Husband And Wife And Why Weddings Are A Waste Of Money Book Review:

This essay sheds light on how to determine if your girlfriend is marriage material or your future ex-wife and also elucidates how to find out if your girlfriend is a sociopath or psychopath. Furthermore, what makes a marriage long lasting between a husband and wife is delineated, why weddings are an egregious waste of money is explicated, and why men should abstain from getting married in the digital era is demystified in this essay. Moreover, how to have a low cost affordable wedding is revealed, the extraordinary benefits of being single forever are identified, and how to earn substantial money online so that you can afford to finance your lofty wedding budget is expounded upon in this essay. Ascertaining if your girlfriend is marriage material is less cumbersome than it is perceived to be in the digital era. Succinctly stated, a six question criterion can be leveraged to ascertain if your girlfriend is deemed marriage material or will likely become your future ex-wife if you choose to marry her. The six basic questions that a prospective husband should ask himself before ultimately determining if a relationship with his girlfriend should be continued encompasses the following questions: 1. Does my relationship with my girlfriend complement me and is it a non-competitive relationship? 2. Does my girlfriend support me, respect me, and not neglect me? 3. Does my girlfriend enrich every facet of my life? 4. Is my girlfriend emotionally stable and does she never throws tantrums? 5. Is my girlfriend moral, trustworthy, responsible, and a pacifist? 6. Is my girlfriend innately caring, compassionate, emphatic, understanding, and nurturing towards myself and others? If you can answer yes to all six of these aforementioned criterion questions then it is highly likely that your girlfriend is deemed marriage material. If you answered yes to at least five out of six of the criterion questions then it is still likely that your girlfriend is marriage material unless you answered no to the criterion question that inquired if is your girlfriend is moral, trustworthy, responsible, and pacifistic. Additionally, if you answered yes to at most four out of six of the criterion questions then it is unfortunately highly likely that your girlfriend is presently not deemed marriage material and would presumably become your future ex-wife if a marriage were to transpire. While there is no reason for men to date nor get married in the digital era, people have a proclivity to form relationships with others to assuage their need for companionship even though prospective friends can be abundantly found either online or through in-person events. The irony is that even though the need for companionship can be profusely satisfied by socializing with friends, this is not sufficient for most men even though it does not cost them a single penny. Most men will instead choose to imprudently temporarily buy someone's companionship by marrying someone who is not deemed marriage material even though they will often subsequently wind up paying alimony payments to their future ex-wife for years to come as a result of their impetuous marital decisions. Men who have experienced the throes of divorce first-hand will often repeat the same mistakes they made in the past by getting married to their future ex-wife and then subsequently having to pay alimony to another ex-wife. As per the first criterion question, it is of salient importance that the relationship with your girlfriend is salubrious and not insalubrious. In other words, it is incumbent that the relationship with your girlfriend complements you and is not a competitive, hostile, bitter, nor toxic relationship. A girlfriend who is marriage material will not be envious, haughty, spiteful, competitive, cruel, crude, nor domineering towards you. Rather, she will do everything in her purview to be supportive of you in an attempt to enrich your life.

The Mathematics of Marriage Book Review:

Divorce rates are at an all-time high. But without a theoretical understanding of the processes related to marital stability and dissolution, it is difficult to design and evaluate new marriage interventions. The Mathematics of Marriage provides the foundation for a scientific theory of marital relations. The book does not rely on metaphors, but develops and applies a mathematical model using difference equations. The work is the fulfillment of the goal to build a mathematical framework for the general system theory of families first suggested by Ludwig Von Bertalanffy in the 1960s.The book also presents a complete introduction to the mathematics involved in theory building and testing, and details the development of experiments and models. In one "marriage experiment," for example, the authors explored the effects of lowering or raising a couple's heart rates. Armed with their mathematical model, they were able to do real experiments to determine which processes were affected by their interventions. Applying ideas such as phase space, null clines, influence functions, inertia, and uninfluenced and influenced stable steady states (attractors), the authors show how other researchers can use the methods to weigh their own data with positive and negative weights. While the focus is on modeling marriage, the techniques can be applied to other types of psychological phenomena as well.

Material Relations Book Review:

Focusing on marriage figurines—double human figurines that represent relations formed through social alliances—Hendon, Joyce, and Lopiparo examine the material relations created in Honduras between AD 500 and 1000, a period of time when a network of social houses linked settlements of a variety of sizes in the region. The authors analyze these small, seemingly insignificant artifacts using the theory of materiality to understand broader social processes. They examine the production, use, and disposal of marriage figurines from six sites—Campo Dos, Cerro Palenque, Copán, Currusté, Tenampua, and Travesia—and explore their role in rituals and ceremonies, as well as in the forming of social bonds and the celebration of relationships among communities. They find evidence of historical traditions reproduced over generations through material media in social relations among individuals, families, and communities, as well as social differences within this network of connected yet independent settlements. Material Relations provides a new and dynamic understanding of how social houses functioned via networks of production and reciprocal exchange of material objects and will be of interest to Mesoamerican archaeologists, anthropologists, and art historians.

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Book Review:

Just as Masters and Johnson were pioneers in the study of human sexuality, so Dr. John Gottman has revolutionized the study of marriage. As a professor of psychology at the University of Washington and the founder and director of the Seattle Marital and Family Institute, he has studied the habits of married couples in unprecedented detail over the course of many years. His findings, and his heavily attended workshops, have already turned around thousands of faltering marriages. This book is the culmination of his life's work: the seven principles that guide couples on the path toward a harmonious and long-lasting relationship. Straightforward in their approach, yet profound in their effect, these principles teach partners new and startling strategies for making their marriage work. Gottman helps couples focus on each other, on paying attention to the small day-to-day moments that, strung together, make up the heart and soul of any relationship. Being thoughtful about ordinary matters provides spouses with a solid foundation for resolving conflict when it does occur and finding strategies for living with those issues that cannot be resolved. Packed with questionnaires and exercises whose effectiveness has been proven in Dr. Gottman's workshops, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work is the definitive guide for anyone who wants their relationship to attain its highest potential. The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work is the result of Dr. John Gottman's many years of closely observing thousands of marriages. This kind of longitudinal research has never been done before. Based on his findings, he has culled seven principles essential to the success of any marriage. Maintain a love map. Foster fondness and admiration. Turn toward instead of away. Accept influence. Solve solvable conflicts. Cope with conflicts you can't resolve. Create shared meaning. Dr. Gottman's unique questionnaires and exercises will guide couples on the road to revitalizing their marriage, or making a strong one even better.
