Jack's risk-taking in his sexual encounters leave him feeling scared and contrite. Karen's best friend Miranda helps her to see there is a future with or without Jack. And Karen's parents' golden wedding anniversary help her and Jack to appreciate their own honest, tough-love kind of marriage.
In this third series of writer Nicholas McInerny's autobiographical look at modern relationships, Jack and Karen are at a crossroads. Two years after he came out, they're still married, still close, have a regular date night each week and are both involved in steering their girls through their teenage years.
But time doesn't stand still and Jack wants to live openly as a gay man. He wants to find out what that could mean. He also wants to be a good dad and keep his family healthy and safe. So it's time for more negotiations with Karen and the girls to see how they can remain a close and loving family and allow each other to grow in their own different ways.
