A Marriage Made in Heaven or Too Tired For an Affair by Erma Bombeck



Now, in her most autobiographical book, Erma Bombeck puts it all in loving and laughing perspective, as she looks back on her own -who's-counting marriage and the timeless passages that make the honorable estate of matrimony the highest-risk, highest-reward profession of all. A Marriage Made in Heaven. or Too Tired for an Affair is Erma's personal story as well as a resonant evocation of the decades that have shaped modern American matrimony - for better, for worse, and for laughs.

Erma Bombeck, one of the most popular newspaper columnists in the United States and the author of numerous bestselling books, died in San Francisco on Monday, April 22, 1996 from complications following a kidney transplant earlier in the month. Bombeck had been ill for some time. In 1992, after she underwent a mastectomy, her kidneys failed and she began dialysis at her home in Arizona.

A Marriage Made in Heaven book. Excerpts from the book: What Bill and I lo When I was a teenager I read several Erma Bombeck books that my mom had checked out of the library. They were hysterical. Even as a teenager, the honesty and humor of everyday life was not lost on me. My most recent book to read was A Marriage Made in Heaven: Or Too Tired for an Affair and was full of gems on getting married, wading through the waters of being a wife and a mother, joining the workforce, becoming super mom, and growing old with your mate

And there are some unusually serious moments as well: the death, at age 33, of a close friend-the first intimation for Bombeck and her husband that life is finite and for real; a late-life and much- wanted pregnancy that ended in miscarriage; the pathos of reversing roles as the author cared for her aging, ailing mother; Bombeck's breast cancer and mastectomy

"I now pronounce you man and wife." There are few phrases as sobering, with the possible exception of "We have lift-off" and "This country is at war." Kids. Dogs. Neighbors. In-laws. These were all warm-ups to the Main Event: Erma Bombeck on marriage.

Irresistible Force met Immovable Object on the sunny day in 1949 when Erma and Bill Bombeck plighted their troth.  Now, from their canned chili days of "Living on Love" to "How Much Happiness Can We Finance?" through "Creative Arguing", from "A House Divided Cannot Stand One Another", to "Run for Your Life" and "For Better or for Work", Erma serves up - as only she can - the timeless tales of laughter and love that have defined couples since Adam and Eve.

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.
