Joy for Beginners

A novel I recently read. The following quotes rang so true to me. Enjoy:
They had stayed friends over the years, even as their children had gone to different elementary schools. They counted on each other to hold memories and identities, to remember birthdays and Mother's Days when husbands or children might forget, to be the extra backbone when a hard parenting decision had to be made. The wife's wife, they had called each other jokingly, the third support in the three-legged stool that is the unseen structure of many marriages.

The other excerpt from the book:
"They said- Adults need to have fun so children will want to grow up."
