Sunday Times bestseller. Where is ‘happily ever after’? And what do you do once you get there? Maybe you’ve just had a first date with ‘the one’, maybe you’ve been married for ten years. Either way, it’s hard to know if they’re really meant to be by your side until you both wear dentures. In Where's My Happy Ending? Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson, authors of the Sunday Times bestseller Parenting the Sh*t Out of Life, set out to discover what it takes to make it to forever, by asking our greatest questions about love.
They ask a former sex-worker and her ex-gigolo husband, celibate monks and free-loving hippies. They ask people who never wanted kids and people who have loads of them. They ask porn-makers and feminist academics, neurologists, psychologists and romance novelists. They ask a whelk fisherman and a lollipop lady. They speak to couples, throuples and singles; gay, straight and anywhere in-between.
And in asking these questions, they are forced to confront their own relationship after a decade of marriage. Through tears, laughter, and one improperly discarded toenail clipping, Where’s My Happy Ending? gets answers for anyone who’s ever wondered ‘what’s next?’ Join Anna and Matt on a searingly honest, belly-laugh inducing journey through love and relationships, social media and small children, expert advice and everyday exasperation, as they navigate the muddy waters of modern romance.
Discover whether love and relationships could be simpler – or more complex – than we think in this study on what it really means to find and keep love today.
"As entertaining as it is instructive...surprisingly funny and touching." Evening Standard
"As a divorced single mother, thank god there is none of that smug, married-couple twattery in this book. I loved it." Jane Garvey, BBC Presenter
"The honesty, wit and wisdom in this book make it a joy to read. There's a genuine drive to get to the bottom of our often questionable romantic philosophy. It's painful and funny - and painfully funny." Emma Freud
