The Marriage Act
From the bestselling author of THE ONE, now an eight-part NETFLIX series. Set in the same world as THE ONE, THE MARRIAGE ACT is a dark, high-concept thriller.
'One of the most exciting original thriller writers' Simon Kernick
What if marriage was the law? Dare you disobey?
Britain. The near-future. A right-wing government believes it has the answer to society's ills - the Sanctity of Marriage Act, which actively encourages marriage as the norm, punishing those who choose to remain single.
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.
BLACK MIRROR meets thriller with a dash of Naomi Alderman's THE POWER.

'Marrs is brilliant at twists . . . for the addicts of adrenaline-fueled twisty rides' - Peter James
'Another savagely clever near-future thriller. Provocative, terrifying and compulsive. If you loved The One, you'll love this!' - Cara Hunter
