The author married Bill Bombeck in the 50's. They had three children, and family life was both satisfying and something of a letdown: & hid my dreams in the back of my mind. It was the only safe place in the house. The dreams were of writing, and a lecture in the 60's by Betty Friedan galvanized Bombeck to ask her local newspaper if she could write a column

I now pronounce you husband and wife. Since the sunny day in 1949 when Erma and Bill Bombeck first plighted their troth, their marriage has weathered the advent of televised football and the dark side of Donna Reed.

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 wa. 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.

A Marriage Made In Heaven; or, Too Tired For an Affair (1993). You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. As quoted in 50 Ways to Stand Up for America : Put the Spirit of July 4th Into Everyday Life (2002) by W. B. Freeman. It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.

I miss Erma. I really do. I miss her style of writing, her humor and her wit. She is probably the only writer from my childhood that I have read faithfully of. Her columns were the highlight of our day when it appeared in our newspapers. Reading this book is like going down memory lane. I remember some of her stuff, but not all of them. This one is a honest and true look at marriage.

Marriage isn't happily ever after. We spend our lives changing our partners, resisting the changes that life throws our way, staying married through thin and fat, through children, through illness and career changes ~~ through death, death of a father and friend. It's a wonderful little book full of wisdom and insights. I love her chapter titles: A House Morally Divided Cannot Stand Each Other or Living on Love.

She offers insights to her own life and marriage oftentimes, poking fun at herself and her family. She is never mean but instead she is inspiring. She makes you think even while laughing at some of the silly things we all do in our own lives. I have not been married as long as she has but already, I see some of the things she has pointed out such as trying to change your husband.

If you're looking for a wonderful book to read ~~ don't miss this one. It's beautifully written and so poignant in some places. Erma writes about life because she has lived it. Her stories are still true today as they were fourteen years ago.

This book is full of wit and one liners from a woman who knows family. I myself only have a husband and no kids but her writing is still hilarious to me. It reminds me of things my own mother used to say in her own funny and sacastic way. When she talk about her husband and his "ways" of packing a suitcase or talking about the kids I laughed out loud while reading in bed and scared my husband. I sure do miss her and only wish she could have spent a little more time on earth to make us laugh. I bet God is having a ball with her in heaven.

Another great Erma Bombeck book to add to my collection. She was a wise woman.

This is a funny and witty book. It's slightly dated (she talks about trying to work a VCR) but the tales and struggles of Motherhood have not changed. I like how she also talks about the feminist movement and how she felt/dealt with it and her role has a Mom.

I re-read Erma's books every so often, because I just don't get tired of the humor of real life. Particularly good if you remember the good old days, but really works anytime you need some laughs.

Fun to read in small snippets.
Maybe her book is better, but I didn't care for Ms Bombeck's corny humor on the cassette tape.
