The statistics are alarming--in the world, in the Church, in temple marriages. Divorce is all too common among today. Of every 100 U.S. couples who marry, 40 to 50 couples will eventually divorce. In this new collection, a variety of mental health professionals and others present their Latter-day Saint perspectives on divorce and related issues. The book discusses women and divorce, men and divorce, children and divorce, dating again, blended families, remarriage, marriage counseling, and so on. All but one of the contributing authors can speak from personal experience about divorce. This book, which will help couples contemplating divorce and men and women who are working through divorce, offers guidance, ideas, comfort and gospel perspective for those struggling through the painful experience of divorce. Author Dr. A. Dean Byrd writes, "After divorce lives can be put back together. Healing can occur." This hopeful message can help people begin that healing process.
