We’re very happy to announce that we’ve partnered with ICED Media and the authors of Love for Grown-Ups: The Garter Brides Guide to Marrying for Life When You’ve Already got a Life to give away a FREE copy of this wonderful relationship book that is full of advice from 3 women who found love and happiness after their 35th birthday.
Who are the Garter Brides? 3 women who got married after the age of 35 who have a lot to share about the difference between a mature marriage and one where you marry in your twenties. What we really appreciate about this book is that each of these women share what they know based on their own life experiences and those of women they’ve interviewed around the world.
Here’s an excerpt from the book with a little more on the Garter Brides:
It all started as many great adventures do, with girlfriends having dinner (i.e., drinks). Nina, Ann, and Pat were business colleagues and longtime friends, all over the age of thirty-five. All had successful careers and were going on dates (approximately 9,000 of those by Pat alone, according to her), but none of them thought she’d get married.
Six months later, Nina got married. Six month after that, Ann got married. Six months after that , Pat got married. Nina said, “At my age you wear a garter, but you don’t throw it.” She slipped it off and gave it to Ann, who wore it at her wedding. Ann then gave it to Pat, who wore it at her wedding. They named themselves the Garter Brides—and a new tradition was born.
Today, this good luck garter has been worn by girlfriends ranging in age from 38 to 57, and it has traveled—in a FedEx box all over the United States.
In the book, you’ll find great advice on the importance of staying in the dating game, how to blend family, friends, and kids, taking your romance to the next level, along with a host of other issues unique to “grown up” brides.
So, how do you enter? It’s simple.
