Apposite means appropriate.
* AllWomenArePrudes: Tracy's attitude towards sex isn't just conservative; there's actually some evidence that she herself doesn't much care for it. The issue is never really addressed, despite the problems it apparently caused in her first marriage and could cause in her second. Although her attitude seems quite apposite this trope when she's drunk.

* TheAlcoholic: Dexter -- much as Seth's philandering is apparently Tracy's fault, Dexter's drinking problem was apparentlly also Tracy's fault, for not helping him enough with it.

* DomesticAbuse: The papers insinuate that this was one of the causes of Tracy and Dexter's breakup. Only Dinah seems to give the rumours any credence.

* InformedFlaw: Quite a few, including Tracy's intolerance, Mike's cynicism, and Dexter's drunkenness. To be fair to Dexter, by the time the story starts he's firmly on the wagon.

* RunningGagStumbles: At the end of the movie, Margaret seems to have forgotten who Mike is ''again'', because she turns to him and cries, "Dr. Parsons!" Mike starts to correct her, then realises that Dr. Parsons is actually the pastor, and he is standing right ''behind'' Mike.

unfortunate implications need citations
** Dexter is plainly shown knocking Tracy down in the opening scene. It's [[UnfortunateImplications played for laughs]], as are the other abuse references.
