Contemplating Divorce, A Step-by-Step Guide to Deciding Whether to Stay or Go
"This is a much-needed book. The anxiety of making a life-changing decision is sometimes overwhelming. It is of immense help to have a coach like Susan Pease Gadoua!" -- John Bradshaw, author of "Homecoming" and "Creating Love"
Ending a marriage can be a shattering, life altering event that, like marriage itself, should not be done without much consideration. Just as there are right and wrong reasons to marry, there are good and bad reasons to divorce. In Contemplating Divorce (New Harbinger; $16.95) therapist Susan Pease Gadoua, LCSW, guides couples in crisis through a series of tests and relationship evaluations to help them decide on what is best for them.
Pease Gadoua has over a decade of experience in working with couples considering divorce and her book offers insightful and practical advice that is needed at such a difficult time. Without taking one side or the other, she helps the reader explore the issues in their marriage that are troubling, and then provides insight into the next steps the reader should take. Pease Gadoua helps readers by explaining:
- the five types of needs happy marriages satisfy
- how to assess the level of fulfillment in their marriage
- how to fix problem areas in their relationship
- how to begin planning for the future, regardless of their decision
With non-judgmental sensitivity, Pease Gadoua provides couples at a crossroads with the tools they need to cope with the emotional rollercoaster of contemplating divorce and make the monumental decision of whether to stay or go.
"I have written this book for the hundreds of thousands of people considering divorce and seeking clarity on what to do next, with or without their spouses. By providing a step-by-step guide of considerations, along with some personal stories, and provocative exercises, I hope that all readers will come away with greater insights and acceptance about themselves and their relationships with their spouses." -- Susan Pease Gadoua
