My Fifth Ex-wifeby Richard O. Jones
Synopses & Reviews
As Perry Wintergreen, a three times divorced claims adjuster, searches for the root cause of his matrimonial disasters, he becomes entangled in a workplace sex scandal. Simultaneously, Perry perceives that the insurance company, where he has worked many years, has unjustly targeted him for forced early retirement.
Meanwhile, he meets a widow who gives him solace, intimacy, and reenergizes his affinity for marriage.
'I love you and don't want our children to witness us shacking up like this. Will you marry me? I want to be with you forever.'
Perry once again rolls the matrimonial dice-and again craps out.
Subsequently, Perry feels that his thirst for commitment is quenched by yet another extraordinary romance. He proposes marriage, he hopes, for the last time.
'I have to learn to love people as they are and stop trying to love them only on my terms.will you marry me?'
'Yes, I'll marry you, I'll marry you tomorrow if you want.'
'That's great! I'll make you a good husband.'
'And I'll always be honest with you.'
His fifth marriage-an unfamiliar paradise-ultimately challenges his deep-seated beliefs at its core.
