The one you never thought you'd become, the one who really wants to get engaged and can think of little else.... Rest assured, you are not alone.
Understandably, official engagement stories tend to leave out the unsavory details of the not-so-subtle hinting, the uncomfortable conversations, and the ultimatums. But like any good relationship, getting engaged takes work.
In The Truth Behind the Rock, couples share their experiences in "he said/she said" anecdotes that offer a glimpse of what men and women are really thinking when it comes to engagements. From knowing the subtle art of persuasion (and what to do if it fails) to sifting through the wreckage once he drops the "I don't really believe in marriage" bomb, author Jessica Kaminsky offers up sisterly advice. This candid, reassuring examination of the great engagement debate is essential reading for every woman in a serious relationship who is ready to make the ultimate commitment.
