Summary

Where is ‘happily ever after’? And what do you do once you get there?

Maybe you’ve just had a first date with ‘the one’, maybe you’ve been married for 10 years. Either way, it’s hard to know if they’re really meant to be by your side until you both wear dentures. In Where's My Happy Ending? Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson, authors of the Sunday Times best seller Parenting the Sh*t Out of Life, set out to discover what it takes to make it to forever, by asking our greatest questions about love.

They ask a former sex worker and her ex-gigolo husband, celibate monks and free-loving hippies. They ask people who never wanted kids and people who have loads of them. They ask porn makers and feminist academics, neurologists, psychologists and romance novelists. They ask a whelk fisherman and a lollipop lady. They speak to couples, throuples and singles; gay, straight and anywhere in between. 

And in asking these questions, they are forced to confront their own relationship after a decade of marriage. Through tears, laughter and one improperly discarded toenail clipping, Where’s My Happy Ending? gets answers for anyone who’s ever wondered ‘what’s next?’ Join Anna and Matt on a searingly honest, belly-laugh inducing journey through love and relationships, social media and small children, expert advice and everyday exasperation, as they navigate the muddy waters of modern romance.   

Discover whether love and relationships could be simpler or more complex than we think in this study on what it really means to find and keep love today. Explore what happens after you fall in love with this laugh-out-loud guide to relationships from husband and wife Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson - journalists, best-selling authors and cofounders of Mother Pukka. 

This audiobook includes an exclusive conversation between the authors, Anna Whitehouse and Matt Farquharson.

A must read

Refreshingly honest, funny, realistic and a must read. Adore these two ❤ Only downside is that I can't get Avril Lavignes 'My Happy Ending' out of my head now 😂

I would highly recommend their first book 'Parenting the sh*t out of life' if you enjoy this one.

Ammunition for life!

I feel armed, informed and heartened having listened to Anna & Matt’s honest and clever take on love and happiness.
It was a bit of a slog for me personally to get through the Tinder & porn sections but possibly useful to others living in a more modern society (not half way up a foreign mountain!) But well rewarded by the ending! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Must Listen

An unobvious modern love story, despite all of the challenges life throws at us, there is a strong feeling of undeniable love. Maybe not throw you up the wall, kiss until your lips hurt love but, it is definitely love. A must read/listen.

Brilliant - informative, entertaining and thought-provoking

A brilliant analysis of love and relationships, and a wonderfully realistic portrayal of what ‘happily ever after’ might really look like. I loved it!

Engaging listen with a brutal yet comforting insight into others happy ending.

Absolutely love listening to Anna and Matt and their honest account and findings on love, life marriage, kids and chaos. We indeed spend our lives with an inherent belief in Happy every after, it is comforting to know not many people live in a fairy tale. And my take/mistakes/general inept attempt at life isn’t all that dissimilar to many others. Well worth a listen/read.

Fabulous

A funny moving, educational, insightful trip through Anna & Matts' relationship and the truth about happiness and the elusive happy ending.

As always, it was great to hear the authors read their own thoughts and research.

It's brilliant!
