review 1: A laugh-out-loud account of what it's like to live with your other half and supress the urge not kill each other over the most ridiculous things in life. Even if you aren't married, you can relate to many of these stories. It's refreshing to read about Jenna and her husband slinging hilarious exchanges that are common occurrences in every household. It's part of a "normal, healthy relationship" to want to smash your partner with a bag of ice in the face every now-and-then or fight over the temperature in the bedroom every night. I love the author's description of the subtle kick under the table becoming a well known event and the "famous last words" by her husband. Read it, Read it, Read it!!!!
review 2: I’m not married nor do I know who Jenna McCarthy is
... more. This thing that she has written about the trials and tribulations of wedded bliss (hell), however, is hilarious. She nails it spot on when she says, “[F]undamentally…the marital minutiae we fight about has nothing whatsoever to do with money or messed-up hair or all of the rotting produce on the planet. We’re not really that bothered by the stinky socks on top of the hamper lid or the sound of back to back episodes of Throwdown Fishing constantly droning in the background of our lives. If these insults were perpetrated by, say, the best friend we hadn’t seen in a year or a beloved, dying relative, we’d either not notice them in the first place or at least find a way to overlook them. The problem isn’t him, and it’s not you. The problem is attempting to live in excruciating proximity with another full-size person who can’t read your mind and also isn’t a carbon copy of you.” (from the Introduction, pp. xiii-xiv) Read on to hear about how she and Joe and countless other couples are driving one another positively batty. You’ll feel better about YOUR marriage/relationship/situation. Probably. less
