Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

With financial problems the leading cause of divorce, this is certainly a much-needed title. Estess, who is the founding editor of Sylvia Porter's Personal Finance magazine and author of Kids, Money & Values (Betterway, 1991), shares the stories of nearly 100 remarried couples and her own personal experience to talk about the financial aspects of remarriage. She takes into consideration all possible scenarios of remarriage, e.g., how to deal with child support and alimony responsibilities from previous marriages; financial obligations to children and stepchildren living and not living with the new couple; and buying a home in the new marriage and selling home(s) from previous marriages. Estess also includes a very helpful consideration of prenuptial agreements and the importance of discussing financial issues before the marriage, even if a prenuptial agreement is not used. Recommended for public libraries.?Joel Jones, Kansas City P.L., Mo.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter Gerlach on September 6, 2004
Format: Paperback
I have specialized in providing professional education and therapy to divorced, courting, and re/wedded couples since 1981. I am (a) 66, (b) a stepgrandson, stepson, and ex-stepfather and stepbrother, (c) an invited Board member of the Stepfamily Association of America, (d) a contributing editor to 'Your Stepfamily Online,' and (e) the author of six personal-growth and family-relations books. I am not a financial expert, as author Patricia Estess is.

I recommend this book to readers who want (a) a well-researched, readable, practical introduction to money management in stepfamilies, starting in courtship. The single reservation I have about this book is that the author makes no mention of several factors that will hinder typical readers from following her practical advice. Like most authors in this genre, she omits:

1) why and how to assess and reduce co-parents' psychological wounds from childhood (vs. divorce). Most divorced and stepfamily adults appear to be significantly wounded - and don't (want to) know it;

2) the origin and impacts of blocked grief in adults and kids, and how to spot and reduce it;

3) co-parent unawareness of - and indifference to - five key topics: (a) normal personality formation, composition, and function; (b) keys to high-nurturance families and relationships, (c) effective communication skills, (d) healthy 3-level grief, and (e) stepfamily realities, norms, implications, and hazards. And...

4) the implications of little effective re/marital and co-parenting help (i.e. courtship coaching, classes, informed counseling, co-parent support groups) available in most communities and the media.
