In The Three Marriages, David Whyte, the bestselling author, poet, and speaker, asks you to think about your significant relationship to your partner, your work and your inner self in a radically different way by drawing them into a mutually supportive conversation. According to Whyte, we humans are involved not just with one marriage with a significant other. We also have made secret vows to our work and unspoken vows to an inner, constantly developing self. These Three Marriages constantly surprise us, and they demand larger and renewed dedication as the years go by. Whyte's thesis is that to separate these marriages in order to balance them is to destroy the fabric of happiness itself; that in each of these marriages, will, effort, and hard work are overused, overrated, and in many ways self-defeating. Happiness, Whyte says, is possible, but only if we re-imagine how we inhabit the worlds of love, work, and self-understanding. Whyte argues that it is not possible to sacrifice one marriage for any of the others without causing deep psychological damage. He looks to a different way of seeing and bringing these relationships together and invites us to examine each marriage with a fierce but affectionate eye as he shows the nonnegotiable nature at the core of each commitment. Only by understanding the journey involved in each of the Three Marriages and the stages of their maturation, he says, can we understand how to bring them together in one fulfilled life.… (mere)

A deep, serious and provoking reflection on the wholeness of our life (our beloved, our work, ourselves) which tries to go beyond the "work-life balance" rhetorics to find more meaningful insights, often coming from the author's experience or from the lives of great personalities. ( )

He got it right! I attended a workshop at Green Gulch (San Francisco, CA) where David Whyte introduced the book. I bought it and read it two times. I found it very helpful! ( )

great, another 'self-help' book that my dad is thrilled to bits about and insists that I read. but wait! There is something different about the poet David Whyte's writing style, a man who understands his place in the world and doesn't come strictly from a place of pompous 'right and wrong' instead he glances at various approaches throughout history, while non-pretentiously explaining his own life story all the while keeping the reader engaged. Like his Stevenson before him, his writing has made an impact on a youthful spirit that would usually be too weary to ever open such a book.

Recommended. A thoughtful look at the three key commitments of our lives that in order to live well, we need to work at (Marriage to our Work, Marriage to Self and Marriage to your Mate - or in the case of single people - to that idea or calling that we've married ourselves to - thinking Queen Elizabeth here). I love the fact that he did not leave single people out. ( )
