Publisher's Summary

“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 43-year-but-who’s-counting marriage.

©1993 Erma Bombeck (P)1995 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

Critic Reviews

“Bombeck…is in top form here, detonating snappy one-liners throughout this account of her 40-plus years of marriage.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Nostalgic

I read this book when I was much younger and really enjoyed re-visiting it so many years later as a married woman. It's just as witty and surprisingly touching as it once was and I really enjoyed it.

It's Erma's Life & Laughs

If you remembered "Aunt Erma's" witty tales of suburban wifery; then you'll appreciate the true tale from the marriage trenches.
