Can there be a family curse on having a happy marriage?
Claire Woods and Jimmy Tyler were high-school sweethearts with a marriage proposal on prom night. Ten years later and they are no closer to the altar than that far away romantic night, thanks to Claire's family. Traits run in families, divorce runs in Claire's own. Her parents have eight marriages and numerous divorces between them. And her siblings aren't much better, with twin Corrine ready to walk the aisle for marriage number five. Or is she?
Jimmy Tyler is a man with a plan and with the help of Claire's family and friends he may just get his reluctant bride to the church...this time.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The sister's voice was irritating.
Any additional comments?
Claire has no faith in marriage and she based her decision to not get married on the examples of her parents and siblings' multiple divorces. She and Jimmy have been living together for ten years and she will still not see his devotion and commitment. She has avoided a serious talk with her parents about marriage and she disbelieves Jimmy when he talks about his parents' wonderful, faithful marriage.
