Thoughtfully and poignantly written. As a psychotherapist myself, I admire the author's ability to present, sometimes painful, information in an appropriately humorous fashion. I particularly enjoyed her inclusion of other people's comments in her own work. I am a 25 year marriage veteran, who was feeling stuck and blind-sided after being served with Divorce Papers, and this book helped , largely by giving me some " one session therapy" (read : a slap in the face, but in the good way) .This book is a must read for any woman (or man) facing a " Gray divorce " .
"Very real and applicable book for any lady"
Very real and applicable book for any lady going through midlife separation. It provides research and relevant stories.
"A good guide"
As I begin to navigate the waters of divorce this book was helpful. Abby helped validate my thoughts and feelings and identified some additional steps to consider as I move through this journey.
"he wants it, I don't. married at 19, "D" af 14yrs"
Though I'm not the asking party in my divorce... this book did bring to light, how much I have blind to, thee entire time I've been married.
(currently still in the divorce process and proceedings).
He claimed unhappiness, and I had given him my world, universe, and beyond... for 14yrs.
He was literally my "everything"!
Without telling my whole life's "sob story" of now realizing that I was "young and dumb"... (although I loved him, [ and will always love the memories, in which I choose to remember, categorized as either: positive or "self-building"], I know he will always be loved in my heart; even with the good, bad, and the ugly.... I have no regrets, just what I like to consider to be "better knowledge of me" now.
THANK YOU, Abby Rodman.
I now have a different perspective of my divorce... I can (and will) survive this!!
I loved hearing other peoples experiences, successes, and feelings going through their troubled times. This book is encouraging and a great help in guiding a person in making such a life changing decision. Thank you!
This was an easy listen for a brutally not-easy place to be this far down life's finite road. Thank you, Abby!
"Not the book for me."
shortly after I began read it,I realized I wanted to reconcile my marriage not end it.
