Author seems pro-adultery

Good book for those wanting to rationalize or justify having an affair or putting personal “happiness” above all other values in life even to the clear detriment of their loved ones.
Listening to this book is an insult and further injury to those who have been betrayed by a spouse.

he wants it, I don't. married at 19, "D" af 14yrs

Though I'm not the asking party in my divorce... this book did bring to light, how much I have blind to, thee entire time I've been married.
(currently still in the divorce process and proceedings).

He claimed unhappiness, and I had given him my world, universe, and beyond... for 14yrs.
He was literally my "everything"!

Without telling my whole life's "sob story" of now realizing that I was "young and dumb"... (although I loved him, [ and will always love the memories, in which I choose to remember, categorized as either: positive or "self-building"], I know he will always be loved in my heart; even with the good, bad, and the ugly.... I have no regrets, just what I like to consider to be "better knowledge of me" now.

THANK YOU, Abby Rodman.
I now have a different perspective of my divorce... I can (and will) survive this!!

A really helpful and insightful book

I've enjoyed listening to this book which provides clear information on many aspects of separation and divorce. There were some real light bulb moments which confirmed to me that the decision I made was the right one. I feel empowered to live my life and although I'm not ready for a new relationship, I know I am getting stronger every day and that day will come. I would certainly recommend this book if you are considering separation or in the process of divorce.
