Ten novels that teach you something about marriage

At B&N Reads Jeff Somers tagged "which offer you all the marriage advice you’ll ever need," including:
Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty

Lesson: The grass is always greener. Every married couple has at least one other couple they see socially whom they love/hate because they seem too perfect. They are financially affluent, they have great taste, their kids behave well, they are obviously affectionate. As Moriarty’s great novel reminds us, that’s often window dressing. Everyone has problems. Some of us are just better at hiding them.
