Delia Ephron: 'You Have To Divorce Someone If They're Crushing Your Dreams' (VIDEO)

The late Nora Ephron famously said, "Marriages come and go, but divorce is forever." That opinion is shared by her sister, writer Delia Ephron, who also learned firsthand how much a divorce can benefit one's life.

"You have to divorce someone if they're crushing your dreams. That is just a given," Ephron said during an interview with HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani.

Ephron is now married to her second husband, screenwriter Jerome Kass. But her first experience with marriage was not so successful, she explained during a conversation about her latest book, "Sister Mother Husband Dog: Etc."

Her first husband was a professor from Brown University, and after their wedding, the couple moved to Rhode Island, where Ephron said she worked as a "girl Friday" before she got the courage to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.

"My first husband didn't want me to be a writer," Ephron told HuffPost Live. "He said, 'I don't want you to be a writer.' And I said, 'Why?' And he said, 'I don't want you to be famous. Suppose you become famous.' So I said, 'I promise I won't be famous.'"
