Description

In this lovingly hilarious look at her 44-years-and-counting marriage to a man she wouldn't trade for anything in the world -- who would finish her sentences? -- Erma Bombeck offers observations as only she can, on:

The true test of compatibility: buying a house that "needs work" Surviving parenthood, and the nest that won't stay empty How times of struggle are a piece of cake compared to handling success Elevating guilt to a sacrament What to do with a man who saves instruction manuals; thinks a fishing license makes a great anniversary gift; and, thanks to the remote control, has never seen a television commercial Frazzled mothers wondering who they have to sleep with to get fired from the job Facing maternity, mortality, and metamorphosis together

This entertaining portrait of an American marriage is Erma Bombeck at her most intimate, and her funniest.

display_description"I now pronounce you husband and wife." There are few phrases as sobering, with the possible exceptions of "We have lift-off" and "This country is at war." Yet, as they have done for centuries, millions of courageous men and women continue to walk down the aisle every year, without so much as a job description. Now, in her most autobiographical book, Erma Bombeck puts it all in loving and laughing perspective, as she looks back on her own forty-three-year-but-who's-counting marriage.
