The Walking Unwed: 100 Ways to Survive a Dead Marriage Apocalypse
Never in a zillion years did Judy Jones think she'd marry a man who'd get infected. But after the wedding, she learned her husband had contracted the Unwed virus. In her desperation, she found old research from a lost doctor, who had studied the virus and compiled 100 survival tactics to keep spouses from turning into walking corpses. The list has never been published until now. More
Not to be confused with unmarried, the term Unwed refers to a particular virus that, in essence, turns spouses into walking married corpses. According to historical data, this disease has been infecting couples for millennia. But its causes and properties remained largely a mystery until the early 20th century when a doctor in Indian made a critical breakthrough.
After studying infected pairs in a series of trials, he posited a controversial theory that the Unwed virus has six phases and symptoms tended to appear in the first 100 days of marriage. Thus, he believed, the infection could be thwarted or even reversed with the early application of certain wellness tactics. Unfortunately, most of the doctor's research has been lost or destroyed since he went missing some time around 1906. His list of survival tactics, however, was discovered decades later by a woman in New York who was desperate to save her marriage.
