It was interesting to read the accounts of women who wanted to get married but who had boyfriends who were happy with just dating or living together. There are 50 stories and each is written by different women telling her own story. They range from women who got married really young to women who had been married before and had children. Some are driven by their faith. I liked the stories of the women who were strong enough to stay true to what they wanted (and were willing to walk away from the relationship) rather than having to resort to manipulation or pressure.
