For Better or For WorseFor Better or For Worse (FBorFW) is a comic strip by Lynn Johnston that began in September 1979.
Set in the fictitious Toronto-area suburban town of Millborough, Ontario, the strip chronicles the lives of a Canadian family and their friends. The father, John Patterson, is a dentist whose hobby is model railroading; he appears less often than the mother, Elly, a housewife turned book store owner. The Pattersons have three children: Michael, Elizabeth, and April. Michael is married to Deanna, Elizabeth teaches on a First Nations reserve, and April is in high school. The strip also features Elly's father, Jim Richards, and his second wife, Iris.
Unusually for comic strips, the characters age. The strip may be unique in that this occurs in real time, and fans have been known to express surprise and dismay at passing time in the story (e.g., "Michael is married?! He can't be that old!"). The closest comparisons to the strip are Gasoline Alley and Baby Blues, both of which feature character who age progressively, slower than real time.
The comic's characters were based upon Lynn Johnston's real family. However, the characters are substantially different from her real family. When her children were younger, she asked their permission before depicting events from their lives; and she only once used a "serious" story from their lives.
