In an age when the pressures on marriage are heavier than ever and divorce is more accepted and easier to obtain, marriages seem to fail as often as they succeed. As an adult child of divorce, Dr. John Trent offers insights into why adult children of divorce tend to repeat their parents' mistakes. He then lays out a plan for a lifelong marriage that is strong and healthy. Couples will learn how to avoid repeating the mistakes that often lead to divorce.

From the Back Cover:

Make sure your marriage makes it!
Is a healthy, lasting relationship only for other people?
If your parents divorced, making your own marriage work can be an uphill climb—or a risk you’re afraid to take. Without a positive example, you can be hobbled by fear and negative patterns you may not even notice.

If you’re worried about your own ability to maintain a satisfying marriage, statistics say you’ve got good reason and a lot of company. Fortunately, author John Trent—an adult child of divorce himself—has faced the same fears and found answers.

In this book you’ll discover how to . . .

  • avoid repeating your parents’ mistakes
  • root out habits and assumptions that hold you back
  • take realistic steps that build the wisdom and persistence you’ll need
Breaking the Cycle of Divorce gives a plan for building a lifelong, thriving relationship. You don’t have to repeat the past. Make your own history with a marriage that works—and endures.

Review:

This book gives compelling evidence that the negative power of parental example can be broken. John Trent is living proof that the insights of this book can lead to a successful marriage. (Gary Chapman, Ph.D., author of The Five Love Languages )
