Today's Chapter @sprainedbrain reminded me of this prompt from 4 years ago from @RealLifeReading Challenge. I always think #smugmarrieds when I read it. 😆

This book has so many fascinating titbits! I feel like like I want to incorporate elements of these ‘surplus women‘s‘ stories into characters in SO many stories...
Maybe some #ValentinesDay #flashfiction is in order??

#smugmarrieds

It's like the dinner party Bridget Jones was invited to.

Maybe Bridget and Cormoran would have made ... On second thought, probably not. 😁

Zelma They could have gotten drunk together at that dinner party, whispering snarky remarks about the smug marrieds and awkwardly ignoring all attempts to set them up. 5y
julesG @Zelma Great idea. 5y

I looked at my shelves for ages for #smugmarrieds, glossing over this several times until it hit me like a tonne of bricks... Jules is such a frickin' smug married. #junebookbugs (and with this, I'm now caught up after starting late!)

To the paparazzi and the world, Anne and Charles Lindbergh were the epitome of #SmugMarrieds, but Anne definitely didn't feel smug about her marriage to the famous aviator.

Day 5 #JuneBookBugs #smugmarrieds I think all of my choices for books with smug married couples like most of Jane Austen's work & Bridget Jones's Diary have been picked a lot for this prompt, so I just decided to go with the last book chock full of smug marrieds that I've read, Big Little Lies. Although most of the marriages had issues--some much worse than others--in public, both in the book & series, these couples were pretty damn smug.

merelybookish Loved this series! (More than the book. 😯) 5y
Purrfectpages Good fit for the tag! 5y
Melistoro I love the book. The series was missing something. 5y

The #SmugMarrieds #JuneBookBugs prompt brought this to mind: "I feel contentment and pride as Victor and I pause our shouting to share a smug, knowing smile with each other as we pass the baffled couple, who move to give us room on the sidewalk."
