Be a bit bendy

Lucy, Tess’ mother, gives her daughter advice about marriage.

“Sometimes I look back and think, goodness me, we took our feelings so seriously,” says Lucy in Liane Moriarity’s book The Husband’s Secret.

She’s talking about her marriage and why she divorced Tess’s father. “Everything was black-and-white. We got into our positions and that was that. We wouldn’t budge. Whatever happens, don’t get all rigid, Tess. Be prepared to be a bit…bendy.”
