Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person

The School of Life

Overview

If we are lucky, marriage can be a great source of support and happiness, but making the wrong decision can mean disappointment, resentment, and frustration. With so much at stake, how can we ever be sure we're making the right choice in love?

The School of Life brings together professionals from the fields of philosophy and social studies to focus on emotional intelligence and the skills we need to navigate through everyday life. Co-founded by British philosopher Alain De Botton, the School of Life creates thoughtful content about love, parenting, careers, communication, and finding joy in the small pleasures of life.

This book challenges the conventional view of love as an inexplicable magic, urging us to view it as a practical achievement to work towards. Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person explores how the idea of happily ever after has changed throughout history, what misconceptions still remain, and how understanding ourselves and others better can help us find happiness.
