Towards the end of the book, Jack talks about a new girl in his life - Erica. He even imagines her at home with him, playing "Trivial Pursuit" with his family. Do you think that Jack will be able to have a healthy and committed relationship now that his family, although different, seems put back together again?

It will take some time, but I think he will be able to have a healthy relationship once he sees his parents succeed in theirs.

We learn all kinds of lessons from our parents: some to imitate, some to avoid. Who knows which lessons Jack will make a priority.

I think that there are a lot of what if's that should be involved with that question. I would hope so.

Well, I would hope so. I wonder how he will introduce his family to Erica, as she must know the whole story, especially why the threesome.
