Reva’s previous book, First Comes Marriage: Modern Relationship Advice From the Wisdom of Arranged Marriages (Simon & Schuster, June 2008), examined what the centuries-old tradition of arranged marriages could teach modern women about dating, love and relationship happiness. The book was based on over 300 interviews Reva conducted with women in arranged marriages across the US, Canada and Europe.
First Comes Marriage received both critical acclaim and global media coverage from such major outlets as 20/20, CBS Sunday Morning, Canada a.m., The Steven & Chris Show, The Daily Mail, The Atlantic, Redbook, Reader’s Digest, The Times (UK), The Times (India), The Globe and Mail (Canada) and The Christian Science Monitor.
First Comes Marriage also appeared in the documentary “American Marriage” and is currently being discussed as the basis for a reality show.
