Happy Divorce

Divorce…a term that denotes separation or dividing asunder a relationship that was once, more than likely, friendly and loving. No one starts into a meaningful marriage or co-existence expecting to one day face the bitter challenge of a divorce. It often comes on the heels of infidelity, lost trust, disavowed love, or a thousand other reasons, but regardless of the cause

Recommends it for:
Anyone seeking a more fulfilled relationship.

In my line of work I occasionally encounter people who are having relationship problems and they look to me for answers. Too often I struggle with what I might say to sooth their troubled heart, which is why I downloaded this book. The title was the selling point for me – I wanted something upbeat that would offer me some insight into divorce from a professional’s perspective. As a child, I watched my parents endure a bitter divorce that ate at my mother for 22 years, until the day she died. Aft

I must admit I am happily married, but Happy Divorce did me a wealth of good. It certainly is geared toward individuals navigating a broken relationship, but it’s also about bettering yourself. The author is well versed in this field and her expertise comes through with the content and writing style. The book itself is divided into two portions, each having a unique focus. I appreciated the section on building self-esteem, and becoming your own person. She’s included an exercise in the form of a questionnaire that was very intuitive and rewarding. It took me a few hours to complete the written task, but I found the experience quite fulfilling. My wife and I did it together and we had fun comparing our responses. I would recommend the book to anyone, based solely on access to the questionnaire.

I thought of my mother often as I read this book. So much of what was written puts divorce into a clear, understandable, manageable box for anyone in the midst of a split. It did help me gain some valuable insight into the psyche of divorce and what I might say to help others in need. There are some useful specifics in part two, such as finding a divorce lawyer, how to deal with the ex’s family, and how to help children understand the sadness of a family dissolving. I did find a bit of redundancy throughout, but the emphasis was not distracting.

I would recommend this book to any individual or couple that is embroiled in a separation or thinking about it. It is very detailed, leaving no aspect of divorce unexplored. I believe most, especially women, will relate to the author, as she writes from a position of having been there and had to discover what it meant to have a Happy Divorce.

The cover shows just a female, in divorce there would be another person, male ,or in the case of civil partnership, another female. The book is in my opinion bias. Not everyone experiences ‘stress’ during divorce. I myself felt elated and enpowered, yet a whole section is devoted to ‘stress management’. All the details within that section, could be applied to managing other emotions, completely separate from any relationship issues. Further into the latter stages of the book, it deals with getti
