Until now, couples facing the dilemma of deciding whether or not to stay in an unhappy marriage had three options: individual or couples therapy, separation, or divorce. "Should I Stay or Go?" provides these couples with a fourth option - the Controlled Separation (CS). "Should I Stay or Go?" explains CS and shows how it can be used as a tool to help couples make the best decision for both partners.
This book provides advice and tips to help couples who are trying to save their marrage.
The latest book by Greg Behrendt, author of the multi-million plus copy bestseller 'He's Just Not That Into You', is another hilarious, wry and wise take on relationships, and how to move on when one goes sour. 'He's Just Not That Into You' is more than a book. It's a revolution. The phrase, coined by Behrendt for an episode of 'Sex and the City', has now entered the language: it features in ads, it's referred to in newspaper headlines and it has spawned spin-off spoof books and more. 'It's Called A Break-up Because It's Broken' promises to do this and more. It will help you get over anyone and move on. Behrendt's voice is unique - combining tell-it-like-it-is advice with humour and the 'guy's eye view'. The book is filled with solid advice to help you let go of your ex - for example: 'It's 3 am, the bottle of wine is empty, do you really want to make that call?' Each insightful chapter is complemented with a Q-and-A with Greg on what he's thinking, case studies, and games. Greg and Amiira tackle tough issues, such as break-up sex, how not to lose your friends during a break-up, and 10 great places to cry. It's the ultimate read and reference for anyone who has ever been in a relationship.
These women have been there and they have lived the pain, as I have. Everything they have gone through is very real and honest. This is the light at the end of the tunnel. After much prayer and down time, this book is helping me begin to find a way back to sanity and life again.

The Custody Minefield is an essential self-help work for mothers, fathers and grandparents wishing to resolve residence and contact issues related to separation and divorce, and is intended for parents separating in England and Wales under the jurisdiction of the English and Welsh Courts.
It's extraordinary that there is no other book to help parents reduce the pains of divorce for their children. Both professional authors work in the areas of family support and family law. They have deep experience of the cause-and-effect problems that relate to divorce. This book draws on the questions children ask and the feelings they hide. These are organised as sub-headings under each new topic. The book explains in clear, simple terms how to anticipate problems, avoid unneccessary harm and, of course, what action to take if things have gone wrong.
Alex has two homes - a home where Daddy lives and a home where Mummy lives. Alex has two front doors, two bedrooms and two very different favourite chairs. He has a toothbrush at Mummy's and a toothbrush at Daddy's. But whether Alex is with Mummy or Daddy, one thing stays the same: Alex is loved by them both - always. This portrayal of the life of a child whose parents are divorced is full of warmth, comfort and affection.
This book will take you through every aspect of a divorce using clear explanations of the law, and providing checklists, together with examples of the court forms and draft letters. It explains the complete procedure.
