What happens when two traveling journalists meet and fall in love in the Galapagos? Well, they get engaged and wed in a whirlwind that's just as exciting as their lives. And while author Jo Piazza may have known that the pairing was perfect, she wasn't about to wade the waters of marriage without a little research the best way she knows how - by packing up and going on an advice-seeking adventure. Five continents (and a baby-on-the-way) later, Piazza has published her findings in a fun new book that questions and explores the international secrets of a great marriage. We chatted with the How To Be Married writer to learn more about the journey, the surprising tips, and of course, what the French think about all this.
