The author of the popular travel memoir Eat, Pray, Love held a commitment ceremony with her partner almost one year after she divorced her husband. Writer Elizabeth Gilbert, 47, and her partner Rayya Elias, also an author, held a 'simple and spontaneous ceremony of love' in New York City Tuesday. Gilbert separated from her husband of nine years, José Nunes, in July last year after she discovered her feelings for Elias, her best friend of more than a decade.

Awww. How cute. Oh crap. I misread it and thought ‘lizzie warren’. Never mind. ;-)
I thought The original ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ was written because her first husband left her.
Eat at the Y, Pray, Love.
"...Eat, Pray, Love..."
Oh how sweet. Is the guy on the hook to pay the b!tch big bucks, as he always is? Did anybody mention the word “adultery”?
What’s with this commitment ceremony horse blank??? Homosexuals can get married now. They worked hard to turn society’s view of marriage upside down so they can get married, not just have a “legal arrangement” or even a “civil union”; it had to be marriage or nothing for the homosexual.
She’s betraying the homosexual cause by not getting married to her girl. Doesn’t she know that???
But, left him last year after realizing her best friend had cancer ad she realized she was in love with her.
Eat, Pray, Munch
She then married a loser (in the movie he was depicted as handsome), who she finally also left.
Meanwhile, the husband she dropped the first time married a younger, hotter woman: Canadian diplomat Béatrice Maillé.
He gets a younger, hotter wife that his ex-wife would be attracted to as well? I call that a win/win.
She’s going to have to think of a weirder, more self absorbed situation to get herself into to write another book about next time. I suggest a gorilla.
Elizabeth Gilbert represents everything that’s wrong with women today.
I couldn’t make it through “Eat, Pray, Love” all the way, but I read the early part where she dumps her husband basically because she has become bored with him.
I can understand ending a marriage over alcoholism, abuse, abandonment or adultery.
But boredom? Of course, these “inspiring” divorce stories always sugar-coat things. “I needed space,” “I needed to find myself,” or the ever-popular “I wasn’t happy.”
Someone like Elizabeth Gilbert is too shallow to realize that happiness comes — if at all — relatively late in life when you can look back and say “I honored the commitments I made. I didn’t betray my nearest and dearest, and I never took advantage of someone weaker than me.”
At 59, and as one of the last Old-School Bachelors, I thank God I never got mixed up with a woman as fickle and scatter-brained as Elizabeth Gilbert.
Eat, Pray, Love, pass the strapon
Cheat, prey, lust...
Self destructive feminists need no help from this woman to ruin their lives. That particular phenomenon precedes even Helen Reddy’s idiotic “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar” drivel.
The activist fringe, sure, but no group is as monolithic as that.
It was probably more about the option of getting married than a duty to marry.
In this case, the girlfriend is terminally ill, so maybe they didn't want to take the final step.
