Lou and Josh have been together for 14 years. They share two kids, a mortgage, careers and plenty of history. Now, after a particularly fraught Christmas, Lou is ready to ask herself: is this marriage worth hanging on to?
I Give my Marriage a Year paints a sharply accurate, often hilarious picture of a modern Australian marriage. Lou and Josh are a couple on the edge, and their efforts to bring their relationship back from the brink will resonate with anyone who has ever asked themselves: is this enough?
'Wainwright gets the tone right, there are some funny moments alongside the marital drama . . . by the end you'll be looking at your own relationship and wondering if it's time to set your own deadline.' Courier-Mail
