I Do, I Did, Now What?: Life After the Wedding Dress

Front Cover
Workman Pub., 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 256 pages
Like the Margaret Mead of the married, Jenny Lee investigates the care and feeding of those extraordinary creatures called husbands. Her Vera Wang gown still warm, she explores the uncharted territory of suddenly being a wife, with a real-life husband and one television remote, and shares the mysteries of: How to deal with the freakish occurrence of getting beaten at Scrabble, now that you can no longer retreat to your own apartment What to do when you find out that he's using your very, very expensive, very, very hard-to-find shampoo.Figuring out who is least inept at handling the money, including how to make it through a weekend when the ATM comes up zeroes Confronting dinner duty while staying faithful to your guiding principle: "It's not that I can't cook. I don't cook." Plus, the Great American Couple-Off, surviving the Perfect Fight, Date Night, and more.
Before the wedding, the most anyone told Jenny Lee about marriage was that it was "an adjustment," but "nice." So she took it upon herself to write the one book to read before (or definitely after) saying "I do." Hilarious, sharply observed, sweet, feisty, and courageous, it finally answers the eternal nuptial question: Am I really legally bound to a man who leaves mustard-covered knives on clean kitchen towels?
