I never heard about this movie until I came across it playing on AMC (when it was worth watching. ( hate all the changes they have made!)while channel surfing. No spoilers here, just a typical love story that actually have some funny characters who devleope throughout the story. This is the sequel to "Dear Ruth". Dear Ruth was a story of how a little sister writing love letters to a member of the Armed Forces and pretended to be her older sister. Well you know it would work out so now we have Dear Wife which tells the story of how their relationship progresses with all of the housing shortages after WWII. There is another movie in this trilogy, I think it is called Dear Brat. The center of attention is focused on the younger sister. If you like just plain old funny movies you should enjoy Dear Wife and Dear Ruth.
