This review is from: Surrendering to Marriage: Husbands, Wives, and Other Imperfections (Hardcover)
I am relieved that someone actually had the guts to write about their imperfect marriage. I think it helps to know that there are others that contemplate ending it all out of boredom or frustration. I was inspired by the stories of others and will work harder to make myself happier, thereby creating a more happy marriage and home. I spoke to a newlywed today who saw Mrs. Krasnow on TV and thought the book topic to be B.S. This book does not necessarily speak to the newlywed or younger marriage when they are "playing house". It speaks to those of us married 8-10-20 years or more who feel that perhaps the grass is greener. Iris has said what Irma Bombeck has said for years, the grass is always greener over the septic tank. She has said it with self deprication of her own marriage and humor and tears.
