How to Get Divorced by 30: My Misguided Attempt at a Starter Marriage
Title: How to Get Divorced by 30: My Misguided Attempt at a Starter Marriage
Author: Sascha Rothchild
Describes the author’s early adulthood divorce, which paralleled the experiences of many of her peers and reflected her generation’s predilection toward “starter marriages” influenced by childhood examples, the dating scene and adolescent experimentation.
A hilarious memoir about the ending of a marriage that should have lasted forever-or at least for five years.
It’s an age-old story. Girl meets boy. Girl marries boy. Girl decides she is way too young to be stuck in nuptial mediocrity.
When Sascha realized that the one person she didn’t want at her thirtieth birthday party was her husband, she knew that it was time for the relationship to end. So, like the hordes of others of her generation for whom starter marriages are as common as Louis Vuitton knock-offs and $5 Starbucks lattes, they got divorced. With wit, moxie, and honesty, Sascha spills about the horrible ex-boyfriends, awkward dates, drugs, a near-death experience, and memories of growing up in an unconventional household that led to her short-lived marriage.
A story of love, loss, a flat-screen TV named Ruby, and plenty of misguided decisions, How to Get Divorced by 30 is a hysterical look at what exactly “Til death do us part” means today .
