From the beginning of recorded time Man's big question has been: How can I live with this Woman the gods have given me? And Woman's question matches his: How to live with this Man? Finding no suitable answer they turned to the gods and said, 'Explain this difficult, sometimes rewarding, sometimes punishing relationship, this...this...this marriage.
So the Marriage Myth was born, for when the gods and goddesses were brought into the question it became a three-way discussion.
Man and Woman lived together under this ever-present cloud of gods and goddesses who were always active, sometimes enabling, sometimes interfering in the marriage.
The Marriage Myth is not a manual on how to succeed at marriage. It is not a compendium of all the mythological tales in the world. It is a re-telling of twenty-four of the best myths from the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Teutonic, Hebraic and Christian traditions, all of them Man's attempts to understand and solve the Man/Woman/God puzzle: Marriage.
From the Trojan War for love of Helen to the battle of Christ for His Bride, the Church, the story is told here in language the modern reader will understand. Now let the Myth begin!
