I also disagree with the author's repetitive statement that it takes two for a marriage to fail. The abuser is at fault, not the victim. I resent the insinuation of blame for the victim. Victims have typically tried everything they can think of to make the relationship work, and still end up with the short end of the stick.
Also, I've read numerous books about abusive relationships and about abusers. They are not very likely to change. In fact, for most narcissists it is impossible. All my research has advised against going to couples therapy in abusive relationships because it often results in giving the abuser more insight into the victim's vulernabilities. That is dangerous ground to be traveling.
The author initially says to define boundaries and identify firm consequences. Then she says several times to give the abuser more chances. That is horrible advice. It shows lack of commitment to your boundaries and reinforces the abuser's sense of power over you. Be firm and don't keep giving them more opportunities to abuse you.
Finally, depending on the age of the children, I don't think it's wise to lie and say the break up is no one's fault. Teens should certainly be told the truth about the abuse and they should clearly understand why it is wrong. Even younger children will deduce there must be a strong reason for the breakup, and covering it up is not healthy. Yes, it should be explained carefully, but to lie about why you're breaking up is a bad example for your kids.
There are a great many books out there that are much better resources for people In emotionally abusive situations. I recommend you look elsewhere for better information and advice than what this book offers.
