The Good Divorce:
Keeping Your Family Together When Your Marriage Comes Apart
by Constance Ahrons
While the title may seem strange (and may be misunderstoodjust as the title of The Monogamy Myth is misunderstood), this is a hopeful, practical book that is neither pro-divorce nor anti-marriage. It is based on two decades of research by an internationally acclaimed social scientist and family therapist.
This insightful book offers encouragement and hope to divorcing parents by showing them how they can move beyond the confusing, even terrifying early stages of breakup. It provides practical guidelines for raising healthy, well-adjusted children during this stressful time. For those couples who are committed to the well-being of their children, this book can literally be a survival guide as well as a blueprint for a "good divorce."
