Book Description

Winner of The 2012 EPIC EBook Award for Best Non-Fiction

Are you and your romantic partner under stress? Either from a heavy workload, a traumatic event or illness, a death in the family, financial hardship or any number of stressful situations we encounter daily? Or are you a divorced or single person trying to figure out why your last relationship crumbled? Then The Indestructible Relationship is the book for you.

The Indestructible Relationship--a collection of inspirational stories that reveal the secrets of couples whose relationships have survived stressful and heartbreaking events--empowers couples to overcome adversity and shares wisdom that will help you understand where your last relationship went wrong. The book reveals how to feel more loved, supported, and understood by your partner during life's pressure cooker moments.

Whether you’re a caretaker of your ill or paralyzed spouse… On a journey to understand more about your last breakup. . . A parent who has suffered the heartbreak of a child’s death. . . A couple who’s feeling the effects of work stress or bankruptcy… Someone who has had your home destroyed in a flood, tornado, hurricane or fire. . . A cancer patient frustrated your spouse isn’t providing all the support you need. The Indestructible Relationship will help you get the right type of support from your partner--whether you're going through a traumatic event or simply facing the stress we all experience daily.

In The Indestructible Relationship, you'll discover:

• The number one factor that can destroy a relationship in times of stress.
• An easy way for long-time lovers to fall passionately back in love with their partners.
• Why you don't have to worry if your grieving partner sometimes wants to grieve alone.
• How one very important and easy change in your attitude can revitalize a marriage in trouble.
• When it's okay to seek support outside your relationship.
• A simple strategy you can use to see your partner’s point of view and head off arguments before they start.
• A common trait of couples who survive a crisis with their partnership intact. In fact, without this one trait, your relationship will very likely not make it through the toughest of times—much less day-to-day struggles.
• An effective way to argue that resolves conflict rather than hurts feelings.
• The one emotion to avoid no matter what you're going through—a child's death, a natural disaster, cancer, financial hardship or work stress.
• A surprising reason why some men have affairs—and the one time you should forgive your partner for cheating.

Praise For The Indestructible Relationship:

“I read the first few pages of The Indestructible Relationship and I was hooked. I was fascinated by the ways these couples kept their relationships strong. When I think about how many couples I know that divorce, it amazed me how these couples managed to stick together through thick and thin. I learned a lot from these poignant stories.
--Ann LaRoue, a mother in Florida

To be honest, I wasn't sure what I could learn from "The Indestructible Relationship", as my husband and I have been together 30 years, have weathered all sorts of tough times, and have a great relationship. But, I loved the book! The stories are powerful and inspiring. The advice given is very practical...I really like the Crisis-Coping Techniques listed at the end of each couple's story. Maybe if my husband and I had read this book when we were going through a crisis, we would have had an easier time of it. I think this book would make a beautiful gift for any couple you know who is going through a challenge; health crisis, death of a child, or other trauma.

As a family law lawyer, mediator and former state court magistrate, I have seen thousands upon thousands of couples who have thrown the towel in to adversity; and a few who have gone to the brink and made it back. This book provides insight and inspiration for any couple challenged by the slings and arrows of life, who find themselves on the brink, but who want to make it through to the otherside.

With so many marriages ending in divorce, it's a relief to read about couples who kept their relationships together, despite so much tragedy and hardship. The advice given is right-on and practical; a "must read" for anyone who is in a tenuous relationship.

More About the Author

Author Kimberly Pryor was discouraged. Two close friends were getting divorced from their husbands. And she hadn't been successful at finding the man she could settle down with for the rest of her life. She wondered if "'Til Death Do us part" was just a myth.

"Indestructible relationship?" She thought. "Is there such a thing?"

As a journalist who has had more than 600 magazine and newspaper articles published, she set out to answer this question. First, in a magazine article about spouses who had overcome adversity. Because, she thought, if a relationship can survive a house burning down in a fire, a chronic illness, the death of a child, or bankruptcy, then it could surely survive day-to-day struggles. Kimberly's goal? To prove that indestructible relationships are possible, and that, despite the statistics, divorce doesn't have to be a fact of life.

Kimberly was amazed by the inspirational stories she heard from the spouses she interviewed. Barb and Wayne, who went through the shock of Wayne injuring himself in a family football game and becoming a quadriplegic a month after their wedding nearly 40 years ago. Meryl and George, whose son Danny died at the age of 11 of heart disease. Martin, who felt uncomfortable with the way his wife's priorities changed after she survived breast cancer. And other couples who had gone through floods, wildfires, chronic illness, work stress, home foreclosure and bankruptcy.

She decided these inspirational stories about overcoming adversity couldn't be told in a magazine article alone.

The Indestructible Relationship book was born.

As a single person who was--and is--looking for a long-term partner--the topic fascinated her: what skills do couples use to keep their unions strong during and after major traumas? How is that spouses who have gone through far less have their relationships fall apart while couples who have gone through some of the worst things two people can experience stay together?

In interviewing spouses who have overcome adversity and portraying their experiences in a dramatic, highly readable way, she was able to put her finger on a number of skills these resilient partners use to keep their relationships strong, skills you can use in your own relationship to avoid arguments (or at least argue more effectively), rekindle the passion you felt in your first year together, and develop a greater sense of appreciation for each other.

Kimberly Pryor invites you to meet the amazing couples featured in The Indestructible Relationship book. Their stories will inspire you, renew your faith that love can last forever, and provide the two of you with the skills necessary for coping with life's challenges.
