Her husband, Steve, is an aspiring writer who just needs time away from his busy job to make it good as an author.

What is the happy newlyweds to do?

As time marches on, things go mostly well, but writers block sets in. Disappointments, set backs. Frustrations over money. Jealousy creeps in on both sides.
A few more months go by, and the marital bliss has evaporated. On top of it all, Ann finds out she’s going to have a baby. With the strife in the relationship, she chooses not to tell Steve that little detail. Especially when a separation takes place.
Though Steve has made progress in his writing during the separation, neither want to be without the other. It takes the threat of divorce, and the realization of all they are about to lose to wake them up.
