No one wants to talk about the silent battle stay at home mothers face when there are dissatisfied with their marriages

When author, mother and divorcee Elif Ekin first thought about divorce, she began writing a journal. As she moved through the process and tried reaching out to other stay-at-home mothers, she realized that there weren’t many willing to speak about the subject. To help others going through divorce to not feel so alone and offer insight during this transition, Ms. Ekin decided to pen her new book, “Mostly Happy: A Stay-at-Home Mom's Journey through Divorce” (published by iUniverse).

In “Mostly Happy,” a stay-at-home mother finally comes to the stark realization that her marriage is failing. For the health and well-being of herself and her daughter, she risks everything to live a life filled with peace and happiness. This book is a journal of her journey and her growth through the process of divorce, ultimately rediscovering herself on the other side.

“So many women find it hard to strike out alone and file for divorce because there seems to be a stigma attached to single mothers,” explains Ms. Ekin. “No one wants to talk about the silent battle stay at home mothers face when there are dissatisfied with their marriages. It may seem selfish to others for a mom to put herself first in this instance, but it is important for the mom to regain self respect and strength in herself in order to be a good example for her children.”
