You were a fabulous single girl--you were swell, you were a bombshell, you were a bad girl on the open road. Now you’re getting hitched--are your glam days gone for good? Is “matronly” the hidden meaning of matrimony? No way. The Thoroughly Modern Married Girl shows how to retire that little black book without tossing the little black dress.
Full of wisdom gleaned from dozens of savvy Married Girls, The Thoroughly Modern Married Girl serves up the pros and cons of changing your name, the trick to hanging out with singletons without feeling wistful, the art of the grown-up (but not geriatric) cocktail party, and the key to staying wildly in love. Plus you’ll get answers to all those sticky questions you might be pondering as you’re about to take the plunge.
“Do I have to say good-bye to my exes?” (Yes. It’s impossible to make two men who have both seen you naked into good friends.)
“Can I just marry my guy and divorce his family?” (Sorry, honey, it’s a package deal.)
“How do I deal with the frightening furniture my sans-style guy delivers to our love nest?” (Slip the movers a c-note to “lose” it.)
From the moment you return from the honeymoon and find that the spotlight, tragically, has moved on from you and your guy, The Thoroughly Modern Married Girl helps you navigate the new terrain of marriage with flair.
