Isabel saw red flags before her marriage but ignored them. He was a great catch and so was she. They made the perfect couple. Ann, like any happily married woman, occasionally thought of divorcing her husband, until the tragic death of their 5-year-old daughter forged their bond for life. When Terry McMillan went through her painful and public divorce she was surprised how the trauma affected not only her family but everyone in their lives. When Joyce was away taking care of her dying mother, the teenager she hired to care for her children took even better care of her husband. Andrea Chapin, after years of battling with her husband about money, finally realised she had to become the mogul in the family in order for her marriage, and her family, to survive. Annie found her marriage on the rocks when an unexpected pregnancy upset the delicate balance of her family. In this book women candidly discuss the good times, the bad times, and, what makes or breaks a marriage.
