Elizabeth Gilbert, is best known when her book Eat Pray Love was sold more than ten million copies worldwide and published in over thirty languages. In Eat Pray Love, she shared her life experiences while facing a terrible divorce and her attempts to get over the painful experiences via travelling to Italy, India and Indonesia, where she fell in love again with her new Brazilian boyfriend, Felipe. That was the end of Eat Pray Love.
Committed resumed the story when they resettled together in America, swore internal fidelity. But being a survivor of a divorce, each of them swore to stay together, but not convinced enough to get married again.
Nevertheless, they didn't live serenely that long when US government intervened into their relationship that they were forced to choose: either marry, or Felipe had to leave US, for good.
Obviously they didn't have much choice other than get married. Felipe was forced to leave US while waiting for the residency was granted to him. And both of them wandered across Southeast Asia aimlessly while waiting for the ongoing immigration process.
While they were in Vietnam, Gilbert explored the subject of matrimony so that she (believe that) would be more ready to face her second marriage. It is interesting when she had a dialogue with Hmong old folks who sustain their marriage until they were very old.
Reading this book makes me feel like reading a blog, with a lot of messages to learn about the concept of marriage in modern world. Some are applicable to our daily life while some are depending to our own value and mindset to consider.
And this is a hard fact that I think is interesting for us to ponder
If you think it's difficult to talk about money when you're blissfully in love, try about it later, when you are sad and angry and your love has died.
