The Longest Date by Cindy Chupack
Chupack writes about topics that are common in many marriages. Some are mundane, some heartbreaking, some hilarious. They cover issues from nursing a husband through a cold, infertility, marriage vows, cooking, money and the decision to have a child. The writing will make the reader laugh out loud in one chapter while bringing them to the point of tears in the next. My personal favorite was the chapter about being supportive to a man who has a cold, which in many households translates into a major calamity. Chupack's take on the situation was classic.
Cindy Chupack has won three Golden Globes and two Emmys for her work as a writer/producer of Sex And The City and Modern Family. She also worked on Everyone Loves Raymond, Coach and Love Bites. She has written about dating and relationships for many years in various venues, including Glamour and The Oprah Magazine. Her insight into personal relationships in all their many facets told with her trademark humor makes The Longest Date a book that readers will read quickly and remember fondly.
