“The documentary ‘The Truth About Marriage’ is a refreshing and often hilarious look at a problem that is not often addressed in our society.”
“The book is an essential primer for anyone who is thinking about getting married or would like to improve his or her current relationship. … Perhaps this should be required reading in all high schools. Educators, if you’re paying attention you may want to add the fourth ‘R’ to your curriculum – Relationships.”


“This is the kind of movie you’re going to want everyone you care at all deeply about to see, enjoy and learn from. In fact, I think it is literally the only example I’ve seen about relationships — in films, books, TV, and elsewhere — that I could wholeheartedly recommend.”
James van Maanen, TRUST MOVIES
“Somehow, Nygard was able to cram everything you’ve wanted to know about marriage into an 81-minute film.”
“There is so much detail and insight in The Truth About Marriage, it will literally make your head spin.”
“Nygard takes on a big, broad subject and crams it all into a tightly packaged film. It all feels academic and to his credit, he organizes all this information in a way that’s logical and understandable. You will glean knowledge and wisdom that can help better your relationships.”  MOVIE SCORE: 7/10

“The Truth About Marriage is exactly that: the truth. … The film is genuinely wonderful, free advice that should be beneficial for anyone.”
“For anyone who’s having trouble finding love or maintaining it, or even for those who think they have it all figured out, The Truth About Marriage is a quintessential viewing experience that will raise your hopes and expand the romantic side of your brain.”
“…it’s impossible not to watch the film and take away some valuable insights.”
“The Truth About Marriage is a simple but highly informative documentary about what makes relationships work.”
Nicolás Delgadillo, CULTURED VULTURES


“THE TRUTH ABOUT MARRIAGE, from returning Cinequest master Roger Nygard. With his trademark sense of humor and a rapid-fire editing technique, he takes us on a worldwide journey, starting close to home with his own friends and ranging as far as the amazing Don Blanquito, the most single man in the world (now married.) He ponders why a product that fails half the time and requires constant upkeep when it does work…is so popular? Full disclosure, this is a review written by a guy who has never been married, of a movie by a guy who has never been married, and is surprisingly optimistic about the institution. And he does come up with an answer in the end. And it’s a satisfying one. So all was right with the world….”
