AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Matt and Bec have been married for seven years... and we all know what that means. He wants a raise. She wants her cushions fluffed. He keeps fingering his car keys. She spends hours staring into the back yard longing for a new deck. If only they hadn't started scratching The Unspeakable Itch. So what if Matt occasionally sleeps in the car and Bec has trouble remembering his name? It's just a phase. Once they get their bank loan, a timber deck and a heated infinity pool all their little grievances will disappear. But if they don't get that loan they'll do what any other normal Australian couple would do - have a nervous breakdown and sing about it.'
