What if marriage was the law? Dare you disobey? Britain. The near-future.

But four couples are about to discover just how impossible relationships can be when the government is monitoring every aspect of our personal lives, monitoring every word, every minor disagreement - and will use every tool in its arsenal to ensure everyone will love, honour, and obey.

A very clever read from John Marrs, loved all the unexpected endings about all the couples. Only thing that worries me is that some of the A.I. in this book could actually become real - hopefully not in my lifetime though!
