Hillary Clinton's recently released memoir What Happened details the Democratic party's 2016 election defeat at the hands of the Republicans under Donald Trump.

However, it also discusses her personal life and her family.

She addressed head on the assumption that her marriage with Bill Clinton, after his very public in-office infidelity, is merely a marriage on paper.

She writes that she has "many, many more happy days than sad or angry ones", spinning an anecdote as she writes:

He is reading this over my shoulder in our kitchen with our dogs underfoot and in a minute he will reorganise our bookshelves for the millionth time.

But I don't mind because he really loves to organise those bookshelves.

She also addressed his affair head on:

There were times that I was deeply unsure about whether our marriage could or should survive.

But on those days, I asked myself the questions that mattered to me: Do I still love him?

And can I still be in this marriage without becoming unrecognisable to myself—twisted by anger, resentment, or remoteness?

The answers were always yes.
