The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings?

I’m occasionally asked if I’m anti-marriage. I’m not, although I’m against legislation and a justice system which uses divorce as a means to enrich women – particularly women with children – at the expense of men. I believe this is highly toxic to relations between men and women, and it’s hardly surprising that so many men today are disinclined to marry. The institution of marriage today gives men nothing they couldn’t get outside it, and it piles a mountain of risks on them.

In 2009, just before I started actively fighting the scourge of militant feminism, I wrote a book titled The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings? It received plenty of reader acclaim, and testimonials from leading authors and psychologists:

A highly original and stimulating critique of the modern marriage crisis, supported by important yet sometimes uncomfortable truths.

Oliver James, clinical psychologist, broadcaster, author of Affluenza, Britain on the Couch, They F*** You Up, How Not to F*** Them Up

Mike Buchanan’s analysis of marriage in western industrialised society is courageous and thoughtful. His perspectives on the challenges associated with marriage, and solutions to them, draw on important scientific evidence and arguments from some of our leading psychologists and wisest philosophers. This is a ‘must-read’ for all concerned with modern marriage.

Alan Carr, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University College, Dublin, author of The Handbook of Adult Clinical Psychology, Family Therapy and Positive Psychology

The book’s a hardback (with a dust jacket). The first edition was limited to 500 copies, the last few copies of which are still available, if you’re quick.

The book received good reviews – almost all with the maximum 5-stars – from buyers on Amazon:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
