There are two sides to every story I'm going to read the wife's point of view and then the husbands for the same situation But this is not what this actually is It is a wife's thoughts and a husbands but not in that manner It would make sense that there is some common Happenstance that the reader reads the male vs female point of view But it was not like this I can only think of one commonality between both of their stories and to me it doesn't count as a plot Yes I am stating that I found this uite plotless I found myself asking this various times as I pushed and plodded through this book What I observed
