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.… (mere)

As the child of divorce, this book upsets me a little — marriage: not inherently awesome. Also the history of marriage that the authors assume is, uh, wrong. And holy unexamined privilege, Batman, on pretty much every axis I can think of.

But it's fluently written, the pseudo-case studies are interesting, and the glimpses into the negotiation of a 1960's inter-faith marriage are fascinating.

Worth reading, perhaps, certainly not worth re-reading. ( )

Cokie and Steve's personal reminiscences are mostly uninteresting, but they shine compared to the historical interludes and interviews with divorced couples. The historical stories are blandly re-told from collections of letters without any added value. The interviews are oddly summarized with fairly judgmental commentary. The awkward integration of all these sections is made even worse by the style in the sections about Cokie and Steve, which are written in a kind of screenplay-slash-dialog.

I really wanted to put this book down about 20 pages into it, but I forced myself to continue. And, in all fairness, some of the bits about Steve's family were pretty compelling. Final score: it's pretty bad, but at least there's not much of it. ( )
