View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Attorney Jed H. Abraham explodes the myths about divorce in this candid, often caustic, book about the ways in which divorce laws are unfair to men. Drawing upon his extensive experience, Abraham sketches a compelling picture of what men can expect during court battles over alimony, child support, division of property, and charges of domestic violence. Forget your illusions about amicable separation and fair divorce laws, says Abraham, as he details the economic and emotional hardships that beset many men during, and long after, the divorce process.

But "From Courtship to Courtroom" is also a helpful guide to men who want to avoid the drain of divorce. At first suggesting that they not marry at all, but also acknowledging that they will, Abraham warns men to prepare before marriage for the worst that might happen if the knot unravels. He makes concrete, feasible suggestions about selecting the right mate, pre-nuptial agreements, spousal bank accounts, and how to change the law. Any man considering marriage, or going through divorce, will want to read this book.
