The marriages of Mad Men may be dysfunctional, deceitful or just plain doomed, but watching all that drama unfold sure is entertaining. Season 4 of the series comes to DVD and Blu-Ray tomorrow, with all 13 episodes plus special features and commentary.
One of those features is a three-part documentary on divorce in the 1960s, a time when the all-American-family ideal reigned supreme. And no discussion of marriage in the 50′s and 60′s is complete without a nod to Ladies’ Home Journal‘s classic Can This Marriage Be Saved? column, which debuted in January 1953. Check out the clip below from the Mad Men documentary for LHJ‘s shout-out.
Check out our take on Don and Betty’s marriage, when it still existed, through the perspective of one of our therapists. Pick up Season 4 on DVD for the rest of the documentary – and every addicting episode!
