Sex and the City 2 is ridiculously over-the-top, but what about its presentation of marriage?
If there's one thing we learned from the Sex and the City 2 movie, it's that we're in the wrong income bracket. If there's a second thing we learned, it's that we're not trying hard enough. (Seriously; do we need to start wearing stilettos around our condo in order to keep the fires burning? Some of us have just been wearing bunny slippers.)
