Since she first gave voice to the struggles of a generation of women with "Up the Sandbox", Anne Roiphe has been a unique chronicler of how we live in relationships and in families. In this text, Roiphe offers a defence of married life from the perspective of a wife and mother who survived the 1950s, the sexual revolution and the women's movement. Drawing upon a range of examples from history, literature and popular culture - ranging from Jane Austen's Emma to Bill and Hillary Clinton - as well as her own two marriages, Roiphe looks at the state of wedded union from an emotional as well as a social perspective.
