In this Boston Globe bestseller, twenty-four bestselling and award-winning women writers—married a few years, a few decades, or a few times—explore one of lifeÂ's most challenging and rewarding relationships

At a time when more single women are financially successful and leading full, independent lives Â...when more than half of marriages end in divorce Â...why do we continue to marry? And why do we stay married? Featuring original essays by Julia Alvarez, ZZ Packer, Erica Jong, Marge Piercy, Susan Dworkin, Elizabeth Graver, and many other notable writers, Why IÂ'm Still Married captures the passion, loss, joy, friendship, and humor that mark lifelong commitment, and offers a voyeuristic glimpse of life behind closed doors. Revealing the myriad ways in which women navigate the bumpy terrain of emotional intimacy, weather arguments and separations, reconcile cultural differences, adjust to parenting, avoid—or succumb to—the temptation of infidelity, this riveting collection will speak to any woman whoÂ's ever been in a long- term relationship.

From the Publisher:

Twenty-four bestselling and award-winning women writers explore one of life’s most challenging and rewarding relationships

Revealing the myriad ways in which women navigate the bumpy terrain of emotional intimacy, weather arguments and separations, adjust to parenting, avoid—or succumb to—the temptation of infidelity, and decide who does the dishes, this riveting collection is at once unique and universal, and will speak to any woman who’s ever been in a long-term relationship.
