With one night to remember a lifetime, I Married You for Happiness is a riveting and deeply moving love story. "His hand is growing cold, still she holds it." The story unfolds over a single night, as Nina, numb with grief, sits at the bedside of her husband Philip. There she recalls the defining moments of their long marriage, the intimacies, dark secrets and overwhelming joys that shaped their lives. Moving, powerful, and utterly engaging, I Married You for Happiness is a riveting portrait of a forty-three-year-old marriage and a meditation on how chance can affect both a life and love.
