Not long after they start dating, she discovers that he is being unfaithful to her. She reacts violently, but she stays in the relationship. Eventually they get married. Things don't get better, however. Robert continues to be unfaithful. And he uses Melinda's inherited money to pursue his business idea.

It was originally released under the title She's Living My Life. Tyler Perry's Acrimony outperformed expectations on its first week of release, coming in second to Ready Player One. However, its eventual worldwide gross amounted to only $46 million. The film received broadly negative reviews upon its release. Critics were generally not impressed by the film's screenplay, finding it illogical, confusing, and slow-paced. Some critics noted that Perry and star Taraji P. Henson were both capable of better.
