In the United States, half of all marriages do not end in divorce--despite the interference of hell-bent lawyers, biased therapists, the media, and even well-meaning friends. The Divorce Remedy aims to increase this percentage by offering seven clear steps that couples--or even one hopeful spouse--can implement privately. A therapist herself, relationship expert Michele Weiner Davis accurately (and often humorously) shows how typical counseling and communications tactics backfire. Her method for saving a marriage involves an effective blend of subtle and obvious action steps, each taken in specific order. After a myth-busting lecture on the realities of divorce, Weiner Davis thoroughly outlines her simple plan. Intimidating discussion topics and emotional letter writing are not required; as she succinctly puts it, "happiness is a do-it-yourself job." Poignant questions help readers define their own needs, set specific marriage goals, and monitor results. Weiner Davis pays special attention to issues of infidelity, depression, midlife crises, and "passion meltdowns," showing how basic relationship skills (like understanding and patience) can reverse even the most dire marital scenarios. Clients' stories and letters provide ample testimony for the program's success, and despite her own zealous back-patting, Weiner Davis's sensible approach to revitalizing one's marriage seems truly worthy of praise and practice. --Liane ThomasFrom the Author:
"I love you but I'm not in love with you." "We've just grown apart." "I married you for all the wrong reasons." "I've never really been happy in this marriage." "I feel dead inside."
If any of this sounds familiar to you, I know the devastation you are feeling right now. That's why I wrote this book. It's not for people who have garden variety marital problems. There are lots of other books for them. It's for people whose marriages teeter dangerously on the brink of divorce. It's for people who, more than anything else in the world, want to do whatever they can to make their marriages work and keep their families together. I wrote this book for you.
For two decades I've been helping couples make their marriages more loving. I've been teaching them new relationship skills and new ideas about what it takes to keep friendship, passion and love alive. No one is more optimistic than me about the possibilities of turning around even the most troubled of marriages. I urge you to find out the reason for my optimism. Learn everything you need to know about saving your marriage.Michele Weiner-Davis
