Read in July, 2009

A Little Bit Married is hopelessly dated (it was published in the early 80s) and nostalgically reminiscent of a Judy Blume novel, including the dropping of F-bombs in an attempt to be modern. I never mind using the F word, but to me it should be to show anger or frustration not part of everyday language. To me many of the feminist statements of the times go without saying, however the question of fidelity in marriage is even more relevant today. With FaceBook, Myspace, twitter and On-line dating sites the definition of cheating varies from couple to couple. Personally, if my husband had an emotional time consuming relationship with someone on-line I would be just as hurt than if he had an actual affair.

I enjoyed reading A Little bit Married over a long holiday weekend, but wouldn't recommend it unless you need a Judy Blume fix.
