This book isn't about one couple, but is about an ensemble of several couples with equal attention. It also felt like it should fall into the 'inspirational/religious' category even though religion wasn't mentioned. It strongly emphasized traditional roles: the women do the cooking and the cleaning, and the men take care of the women. With so many stories going concurrently, with similar dynamics, it quickly felt like I was being preached to about the ideal family and the proper, responsible behavior of each person in that family.
The reader did a very good job, and if this type of story appeals, then it would be enjoyable. For me, it was not what I was expecting, and I found it pushy and increasingly annoying.
