What if the only way to end your marriage was to be the perfect husband?
Nick and Maya Wakefield’s marriage is in crisis. Sex is a distant memory, and the love is gone. The turning point came when Maya left her high-powered legal career to stay home with their twins. Today she feels invisible, anxious and under-appreciated, while Nick feels his wife has become neurotic and obsessed with the children. A workaholic with a wandering eye, Nick has decided he wants out but balks when their old friend, Gray, a divorce attorney, shows him the financial damage. He and Gray hatch a plan: Nick will act like an ideal husband and father in order to get a better court settlement. But with his cynical ruse comes a surprising change of heart. By acting like the perfect husband, Nick is surprised -- and delighted -- to find that he feels like one. But will Maya buy the new Nick even when his old lies come home to roost?
