Summary At the end of Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity, but also never to get legally married. The U.S. government gave them a choice: either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackles her fears of marriage.
