New book details couple’s life, marriage forever changed by accident that rendered husband ‘Split Apart’

Love was the number one inspiration to write this book. The love we have for each other, our family, our friends, our future. There is nothing more important than love.

“Marriage vows include through sickness and health, but what happens when the sickness is due to traumatic injury that left the victim not only with a walking disability, but also with sexual dysfunction? How does this play into the lives, and bedrooms, of the marriage partners?” Author Martine Imon answers those questions in her memoir, “Split Apart” (published by Balboa Press).

On December 17, 1993, a freak accident split Wayne’s (the author’s husband) pelvis in half to create what is known as an “open book” fracture, a life threatening injury with a lifelong impact on the survivor. From the moment his wife, Martine, was told that he may not survive, to the ongoing pain and torment of being emasculated and impotent, this book details a brave journey to recovery while having to reconcile with a life, and a marriage, forever changed.

Imon tells the first-hand account of Wayne’s experience being split at the pelvis and how he overcame his grim prognosis. All through her husband’s survival, rehabilitation (both physical and emotional), pain and suffering, the kind of healing that empowers and transcends individuals shine through. The accident has led the author and her husband to find out that they could express their intimacy in other ways; and that faith, hope and love had surely sustained them through the rough time.

“Love was the number one inspiration to write this book. The love we have for each other, our family, our friends, our future. There is nothing more important than love. Through this experience, love is what carried us onward,” Imon shares.
