Publisher Comments:

After thirty years together, Cokie and Steve Roberts know something about marriage and after thirty distinguished years in journalism, they know how to write about it.In From This Day Forward, Cokie and Steve weave their personal stories of matrimony into a wider reflection on the state of marriage in American today.

Here they write with the same conversational style that catapulted Cokie's We Are Our Mother's Daughters to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. They ruminate on their early worries about their different faiths — she's Catholic, he's Jewish — and describe their wedding day at Cokie's childhood home. They discuss the struggle to balance careers and parenthood, and how they compromise when they disagree. They also tell the stories of other American marriages: that of John and Abigail Adams, and those pioneers, slaves and immigrants. They offer stories of broken marriages as well, of contemporary families living through the "divorce revolution". Taken together, these tales reveal the special nature of the wedding bond in America. Wise and funny, this book is more than an endearing chronicle of a loving marriage — it is a story of all husbands and wives, and how they support and strengthen each other.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback and with a new Introduction, journalists Cokie and Steve Roberts take a look at the institution of marriage, American style, including their own match of 33 years. With a narrative similar to "We Are Our Mother's Daughters", they use personal recollections as a springboard for the discussion of larger issues regarding love and family.
