“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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Like the column she’s known for, this book is full of laughs but also explores serious subjects.” USA Today
“Though she has managed to combine a spectacular career with a successful family life, Bombeck makes clear that having it all means giving one's all.”  Publishers Weekly
“Bombeck…is in top form here, detonating snappy one-liners throughout this account of her forty-plus years of marriage.” Kirkus Reviews
“C. M. Hébert wisely reads the book without inflection, allowing the subtle humor to flow from the text.”  Library Journal
