Tributes: Nora Ephron

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Nora Ephron was many things – a screenwriter and director, responsible for “Sleepless in Seattle,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail,” and “Julie and Julia.”  She loved writing, and came on the show a number of times over the years for her books I Feel Bad About My Neck, and I Remember Nothing,” as well as for her play, “Love, Loss & What I Wore.”  She was also a very funny, and very generous person, who volunteered to be on the show on the spur of the moment, should a guest cancel.  But she had her priorities: one of the last times we invited her to be a guest, she said that her son was performing in a band that night, and she had to be there.  She died at the age of 71. You can listen to her conversations with Leonard below.

The Takeaway

Is Marriage Worth the Effort?

Friday, November 12, 2010

When the statistics for success are still grim (50 percent of marriages fail), we're asking: is marriage really worth the effort?

Whether you're married, divorced or considering either, do you have a story that made you think twice about tying the knot?

Ephron tells us that the stories of relationships ending are often as rich as the beginnings. She writes about her experiences over at The Huffington Post:

Divorce seems as if it will last forever, and then suddenly, one day, your children grow up, move out, and make lives for themselves, and except for an occasional flare, you have no contact at all with your ex-husband. The divorce has lasted way longer than the marriage, but finally it's over.
