Savage deftly juggles being a newspaper editor, loving father and partner, and a dignified gay man in today's America, all while writing one of the most salacious weekly advice columns in print today.

The book deals with true story of a marriage, a lovable and relentless mother (she gives the strongest defence of marriage and she's a divorced Catholic), a six-year old who says his parents cannot get married ("eeeewww... that's gross!" but wants to go to the reception), a partner who doesn't want to act like a straight person, and the author.

What he discovers and explores will make readers-- gay or straight, right or left, single or married-- laugh as well as think. Well worth reading!

I'm admittedly not much of a book reader, but having knowledge of Dan Savage through his It Gets Better campaign - and learning more about him, led me to buy this book. I love it. For me, a 24 year old gay guy living in London and in a long term relationship, it was a great read and it provided me with an insight in to the kinds of things to think about when you consider the future and the idea of marriage and building a family.

Dan Savage is candid and humorous throughout the book, and you get to learn so much about not only him, his partner Terry, his son DJ - but also his wider family, and you get a good feeling for how Dan fits in within his family dynamic.

I'd recommend it to all gay guys who are the type of men who are pro-relationship and commitment.

Most enjoyable book I've read in a while. Addresses issues that we will all encounter at some point in our lives unless you spend your entire life living under a rock. Recommend to anyone, Gay, Straight or Inbetween.

This is an excellent book - not only as a story of commitment but also as a study of an extended family. The humour is great and the ending is inspirational.

Very provocative in the debate of marriage equality, Dan Savage's voice screams out of this book. I love him and the way he thinks
