Just because you can live without someone doesn t mean you want to This book is incredibly emotional and moving and I absolutely loved it This book follows Lauren and Ryan a couple who meets in college and is together for eleven years married for six We see them at their best and we see them at their worst and the couple is struggling to make their marriage work They just don t care about each other the way they used to This book reminded me a lot of one of my all time favorite movies Blue Valentine That movie and this book contain all of my biggest fears about marriage The concept that someone will get bored of you and you will eventually get sick of each other It s something that slowly happens over months and then years and then you can t stand each other any and I think that s the saddest thing in the world The one person who used to love and adore you than anyone in the whole world can t even stand to be around you any Ryan and I are two people who used to be in loveWhat a beautiful thing to have beenWhat a sad thing to be Ryan and Lauren decide to take a year apart instead of divorcing because they feel like they need space I cried multiple times while reading this and it was written so beautifully and so well which is something I ve come to expect from Taylor Jenkins Reid Lauren and Ryan are so in love in their first years together and I could honestly feel it Their love was infectious and it jumped off the page and made me giddy I instantly fell head over heels for Ryan he was so charming and likable I love Lauren s relationship with her family it all felt so real Her sister Rachel who she is so lose to and they are so alike they often forget they aren t the same person which reminds me a lot of me and my sister And her brother Charlie who also goes through some major character development in this book and is one of my new favorite side characters ever That s another thing I noticed about Taylor Jenkins Reid books she writes amazing side characters They always feel real and important and fleshed out and like they contribute something to the story Like Gabby in Maybe in Another Life is one of my favorite side characters ever Marriage is about commitment It s about loyalty It s not about happiness Happiness is secondary And ultimately marriage is about children When Ryan and Lauren start to have problems in their marriage it made me so physically depressed because their problems were so real and I ve seen this happen to couples in real life all the time They fight about everything like forgetting where he parked the car financial problems their sex life where they want to go for dinner and a lot of small everyday things that build up into something bigger They aren t honest with each other about how they feel most of the time and over a period of time they can t stand to be in the same house together Watching them go from being insanely happy and romantic to not feeling anything at all towards each other is so depressing but also so raw and real That s what is so sad and scary about this book how real it feels Isn t it nice once you ve outgrown the ideas of what life should be and you just enjoy what it is This book and all these characters have a lot of different ideas about what a marriage is and what it means to be a husband or wife Is it about happiness or stability Or selflessness I ve never personally been married but this book brings all those fears of marriage I have right to the surface Marriage is a huge commitment and it s all about compromise and even if you do meet the one you still might not be able to make it work That s fucking terrifying view spoilerIt was also sad to see her family react to her and Ryan splitting up You never realize how close he is with the family until he is gone That was sad but cute that they both secretly read each other email drafts When Ryan said he met someone in the email my heart broke for Lauren a little I thought for sure towards the end that Lauren might not want to get back together with him and that made me sad but then her and David got lost at Staples Center and she realized they were in the same scenario her and Ryan were in at Dodgers stadium last year and she would have rather been with Ryan I loved the side story going on of Charlie getting that girl pregnant and he s going to move to Los Angeles and raise the baby Charlie is a great side character I love the way he cares about his baby and this girl Christina It s so endearing I fucking love the end when Lauren s Grandma is dying at the same time Charlie s girlfriend is giving birth and Ryan shows up at the hospital and holds her as she cries It was so beautiful and heart breaking and it was written so well I love at the end when she gets a response from that advice column and she prints it out and keeps it in their memory box At least this story got a happy ending unlike Blue Valentine that just tore out my fucking heart and left it for dead lol But damn this book was an emotional roller coaster and I actually felt so depressed hide spoiler
