Any person in a committed relationship should check out this book. It's not a depressing view on marriage--far from it--just a very realistic view, with a bit of humor put in, too.

I loved this book! Gaffney is sensitive to the intricacies of middle-aged relationships and life-changing decisions. Written from the perspective of the three main characters, we see the thought processes behind what they do, their hesitations, things not said, false assumptions, etc.. She balances a respect for marriage as well as for individual growth -- so refreshing in these days of the quick divorce. In addition, this book mirrored (in a number of ways, if not in exact expression) some things my husband and I have experienced. This made the book very cathartic for me. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
