Despite the pain, the emotional turmoil, the fights and the tears, marital problems can be solved -- without ending in a trauma that will haunt you and your family for years.
Written by a renowned clinical psychologist, this reassuring book reveals how your family, your friends, and even society at large can inadvertently encourage divorce -- and subtly deceive you into thinking that single is better. Discover:
-- Step-by-step methods for recognizing your marital problems and working them out-together.
-- The very valid reasons to stay together that are usually given bum raps, including "We Should Stay Together for the Sake of the Children" and "I'm Staying in My Marriage Because I Can't Face Being Alone."
-- The most common reasons given for divorce -- and why they are, more often than not, excuses for not wanting to face the difficulties of marriage.
-- The destructive myths of divorce, including "The Fresh Start." "Meeting Lovers is Easy," and the "Greener Grass Syndrome."
-- The exceptional situations when divorce really is the only answer.
-- And much more.
