Meltem (Pinar Altug) and Haluk (Tamer Karadagli) have been married for 16 years and have two children: Emre (Furkan Kizilay) and Duygu (Aysecan Tatari/Hayal Garip).
Although they are married for a long time, they still manage to turn the minor upsets of married life into major disasters and continually accuse each other in this respect. They squabble all the time and frequently speak of divorce but at the end, they always back down.
The characters of the drama is very colourful: Haluk is quite feudal and jealous, Meltem is a working wife trying to maintain her independence in the marriage, Haluk’s colleague Selami (Ozgur Ozan) does whatever his wife says so he is labeled as being a “light man”, Selami’s wife Gonul (Zeyno Gunenc) who is called by Haluk as being the “dominant aunt” is a close friend of Meltem and Haluk’s boss Ismail is a womanizer and so on.
