Now, the book had a very promising beginning. The main character, Claudia, happily married to Ben, is no fan of children, has never been and isn't planning on changing that. Ben seemed to agree until one not so beautiful day he decides he wants children after all. So, what to do when a couple cannot agree on a such major, life-changing issue?An ept author could build a fascinating story from here. A story of struggling, suffering, thinking, talking.. Unfortunately, Emily Giffin doesn't even try. The events that follow Ben's revelation are so implausible that they make you want to grub the author and shout into her ears: "Hello? Is this real life we are talking about here?" And so, the "happily married, madly in love" Claudia and Ben don't even try couples counselling or talking or even thinking a bit. No, they immediately divorce - just like this, on the spot (sort of makes you wonder what kind of "true love" they had if getting a divorce is their first and immediate decision upon first serious disagreement). But hey, that's where things only become more "interesting"! Because after some time - guess what? - Claudia suddently decides that Ben is her soulmate after all and she's ok with having a baby "just to keep him". Now, how do you like that? One lucky baby it's going to be, its reason for birth being "you know honey, I just really wanted to keep your daddy, I hope you don't mind that I don't care about you that much". I really hate it when the author is trying to sell me cheap stupid morals of this kind. Like "love is worth sacrificing everything for it". Really? Would you jump out of the window if your lover told you to? Or "every woman wants to be married and having children". What kind of naive and stereotypical generalizing is that? As soon as I could see where this book was heading, I knew it would be the last one by Giffin that I ever read. Don't take me wrong. I love romance, and tear-jerking scenes, and I don't mind reading about marriages and having children and stuff. I just hate it when the author is trying to persuade us that this is the only way for every woman.
