I was surprised to see how different and current Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret still is, but yet it’s unsurprising because growing up is difficult, whether it’s 1970 or 2000. I can see how Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret would feel pretty life-changing to young girl growing up, unable to talk about the challenges of puberty and worries of getting your first period.

By middle age, more than 90 percent of adults have married at least once. Married people often describe their marital satisfaction in terms of a “U-curve.” People generally affirm that their marriages are happiest during the early years, but not as happy during the middle years. Marital satisfaction then increases in the later years after finances have stabilized and parenting responsibilities have ended.
