This week I celebrated my 32nd wedding anniversary. When I got married, I promised my “soon to be” that I would do the best I could in our marriage; to be my best. I didn’t promise necessarily to stay married, but to do my very best in our marriage–to be the best me. I think Martha Grossman in Coming of Age: Come Rain or Come Shine, in her own way, made a similar promise. She needed to get out of her marriage to fulfill that promise. Reading her book prompted me to take a good hard look at my marriage. Divorce was always a possibility, but her memoir made me realize I needed to stay in mine. Martha, the Martha that I know, is living “the best Martha.” She and her book are teaching me to do the same.
