Happy Enough Ever After with Heather Havrilesky

Happy Enough Ever After with Heather Havrilesky

For this week’s episode, Emily was thrilled to chat with Ask Polly and Ask Molly columnist Heather Havrilesky, whose new book, "Foreverland: On the Divine Tedium of Marriage" is out February 8. Emily and Heather talk parenting in a pandemic, anxiety, exercise, ambition, what it takes to make a marriage work, and how being a good-enough mom is enough.
