Book Description:

Espouse: (v.) to take in marriage; to make a marriage permanent by court decree; the court-approved process by which couples may stay together beyond the legal 15-year term.

In the contemporary world, fifteen years is considered the legal life cycle of a marriage. If a couple wants to stay together (married), they must hire a lawyer and petition the court to become Espoused.

After 14 years of marriage, Sara and Thomas Healy are still in love. Their decision to go to court to be espoused permanently is a source of great embarrassment for their children. Avery is ready for the benefits of uncoupling, and Sam really doesn’t need the social stigma of parents who decide to stay together, on top of everything else. Lame! Their espouse attorney, Gwen Stevens, has other problems. The judge for the Healy case is her nemesis, Carly Abraham, also known as “the Wicked Witch of the Bench.” Judge Abraham was previously married to Gwen’s husband Dennis, from whom she uncoupled after the allotted 15 years. She hates espouse lawyers on principle, and seems to have an extra dose of dislike for Gwen personally.

While the Healys struggle through the espouse experience—trial separation, uncouple counseling, and ongoing financial burdens—Gwen has to deal with the judge and her own struggles at home. In this fight for love, who has the answers?

I rated this book 5*****'s 

Marriage is always a battle between two people in love or fall out of love

This book is an opening for me and my marriage. It is always a battle between two people in love or falls out of love. I will admit I like the uncoupling when couples are not happy being in love. Divorced is the last hurray for every marriage. We should try to spend time with ourselves even if we are married. The "Me" time is very important like spending time with your friends or just go shopping or drink coffee by yourself to have peace in your life when everything is in chaos.

I felt bad for the kids but sometimes you have to do what is right for your marriage. It does not matter if you are espoused or uncoupling. 

This story is so emotional. I cried in that specific chapter. Working in a nursing home, I have experienced so many scenarios like that. In the end, love always wins. It does not matter if you are espoused or uncoupling.
