A sweet, hilarious and slightly subversive romantic comedy that examines the issues of marriage, monogamy and whether "I do" is the only path to life-long love and happiness.
Ira Black is brilliant, neurotic, Jewish and has so many issues he can't fit them into 12 years of analysis. Abby Willoughby is a free spirit who works in a gym and is better at solving her friends' problems than selling memberships. When the two meet, the impossible happens: they fall in love, meet each other's parents and decide to get married, all in a few breathless hours.
Married life is good, for a while, until a series of comic misadventures (multiple divorces, in-laws, affairs, exes, and too many therapists) force the couple to rethink their strategies.
