By J. White on June 26, 2008
Format: Paperback
Having grown up without role models for a good marriage, I am finding that the author's recommended exercises are very helpful to me (even though I've been through therapy myself). Hearing first-hand accounts of people's experiences has helped me validate my feelings and better understand my parents (and their parents). It is a must read for anyone considering marriage or already in a marriage (even if it is a happy one). Considering the steps the author suggests could only help improve what you have or launch you in the right direction with a new relationship. It will also help those people who are in unhappy relationships and looking to fix or end them. BUY THIS BOOK!

Format: Paperback
Just because your parents divorce does not mean that in your own marital relationship that you are destined to as well. "Overcoming Your Parents' Divorce: 5 Steps To a Happy Relationship" is a divorce coping book aimed at an audience so often forgotten in this area - adults. With practical 'real-world' advice on dealing with the shadow of one's parents failure and how to overcome it within our own lives for a healthier future, the advice offered by Elisabeth Joy LaMotte is specifically designed to put relationship worries behind us. "Overcoming Your Parents Divorce" is recommended to the non-specialist general reader with the comforting message that marital success is not circumscribed by genetics or parental example.
