Love Life For Every Married Couple
Fine. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. Contains: Illustrations, black & white. Audience: General/trade.
A wildly amusing addition to Pat the Husband, this parody continues the story of Paul and Judy, from their beginnings as newlyweds to celebrating the everyday grind of married life, and now to the stereotypical matters of a mid life crisis. Every spouse and married couple will appreciate the interactive humor as they use pull tabs, touch-and-feel, and other designed elements to see Paul and Judy through unnecessary purchases, vision loss, a dying sex life and marriage counseling; but in the end their love is always for better or worse Paul and Judy have been through the demands of married life from wedding planning to parenting, and everyday co-habitation.
I DO presents the real voices of older married couples, who have endured life in the trenches together for fifty years. It proposes the survival strategies that they have personally developed and tested in over a half century of marital commitment. These are their stories and their secrets. As a clinical team, with a physician specializing in geriatric medicine and a geriatric social worker with a background in gero-psychiatry, we have had the privilege of witnessing extraordinary love stories every day.
