The Longest Date: Life as a Wife

By Cindy Chupack
The bestselling author of "The Between Boyfriends Book "and an award-winning writer for "Sex and the City "and "Modern Family "takes a hilarious, heartbreaking look at marriage
Cindy Chupack has spent much of her adult life writing about dating and relationships for several hit TV series and as a sex columnist for "O, The Oprah Magazine." At the age of thirty-nine, she finally found The One and a wealth of new material.
Marriage, Cindy discovered, was more of an adventure than she ever imagined, and in this collection of essays she deftly examines the comedy and cringe-worthy aspects of matrimony. Soulful yet self-deprecating, "The Longest Date "recounts her first marriage (he was gay) and the meeting of Husband No. 2, Ian.
After the courtship and ceremony, both Cindy and Ian realized that happily ever after takes some practice, and near constant negotiation over everyday matters like cooking, sex, holidays, monogamy, and houseguests. "The Longest Date "takes a serious turn when it comes to infertility.
"The Longest Date "is the perfect companion for anyone navigating a serious relationship, be it newlyweds or couples moving in that direction."

"Laugh-out-funny and surprisingly poignant." " Booklist" "A straight-talking, funny and poignant memoir." " Kirkus Reviews" "The characters on 'Sex and the City' (for which Cindy Chupack wrote) could never wait to get together and share the most scintillating details of their romantic triumphs and tribulations. Opening Cindy's book is like getting invited to lunch with those women--the details are keenly observed, laugh-out-loud funny and you never want the meal to end." Cynthia Nixon "If you need a new best friend--look no further! Cindy Chupack's wonderful book will make you laugh, cry, and feel less alone." Winnie Holzman "Cindy's essays are dizzyingly good. They're funny, they're meticulously crafted, and you hardly notice she's doing a comedic equivalent of a ballerina's masterful pirouette. I laughed, I commiserated, I wanted more and more. Marriage is laid bare, negotiations, passion, uncertain leveraging, children, dogs and even boob-jobs are all covered with affection and brutal honesty." Julia Sweeney
