Eat, Pray, Love is a book and film that glamorizes female-initiated-frivorce and thus inceldom. The term “eat, pray, love” is also used sarcastically in various places on the internet to make fun of flighty or airheaded women.
Another popular variation is “live, laugh, love”.
At 32 years old, the author, Elizabeth Gilbert was educated, had a home, a husband, and a successful career as a writer. She was, however, unhappy in her marriage and initiated a divorce. She then embarked on a rebound relationship that did not work out, leaving her devastated and alone. After finalizing her difficult divorce, she spent the next year traveling the world. She spent four months in Italy, eating and enjoying life (“Eat”). She spent three months in India, finding her spirituality (“Pray”).
She ended the year in Bali, Indonesia, looking for “balance” of the two and fell in love with a Brazilian businessman (“Love”). Dalrock writes, with regard to this man, “her remarriage was no more a trade up than her divorce made her more moral. In real life ‘Filipe’ is 17 years older than Elizabeth, and appears to be shorter than her.”
