This book would be great for the reader who already knows that they want a divorce. However, I would absolutely not recommend it to someone who still believes that they have or might have a reason to stay in their marriage or that the marriage can be saved. There are other books that can help readers learn how to stop their negative behavior patterns and develop positive relationship skills. This book skims over that crucial aspect of determining whether one should "stay" in a marriage--an aspect that might save more marriages.

The author provides exercises and case studies that can be used to help and encourage individuals and professionals to think about and examine the state of a marriage in a concrete way. The exercises provide a language so that a dialogue can occur within a marriage or within a therapy session. What is the foundation of a healthy marriage? What is it about the foundation of my/our/your marriage that is creating sorrow? How have I/we/you contributed to the sorrow? In becoming more aware of the answers to the questions that the exercises provide, the questions can then be asked, how might we be able to address and solve the problems that exist in the marriage? Is it possible? Can we/you move forward together in marriage? These exercises provide a guide for an individual and/or couple to turn over every stone before a decision is made.
There are so few resources available for people and individuals contemplating divorce and for professionals working with clients struggling with the question of whether or not to remain married. There are even fewer resources available that are unbiased and non-judgmental. This is a painful stage for an individual, a couple and a family. Author Susan Pease Gadoua offers help in a cerebral, compassionate, mature and unbiased manner.
