Description

Leading marriage author-expert and couples mediator Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B., provides a ground-breaking approach to tackling affairs, indiscretions and opposite-sex friendships. Recognizing that a couple who is experiencing an infidelity crisis is already dealing with an explosive situation, Macleod outlines an innovative and low-conflict way for spouses to work as "allies" to rebuild trust and have a stronger, happier marriage as quickly as possible. Challenging the current "talk therapy" approach to resolving infidelity, Macleod provides real-world ways for couples to work through their problems and save their marriage without "talking it to death." In her trademark no-nonsense style, Macleod offers couples workable real-world strategies, eye-opening insight and straight up advice, preferring these to the psycho-babble, speculative theories and endless "exercises" found in abundance in other infidelity guides. A true marriage saver, this infidelity guide jumps into the trenches with spouses who are struggling to restore trust and love. It is a rare self-help book that will appeal to men as much as women. The premise is accessible and effective: The spouse whose trust has been broken reads Part I of the book while the spouse who has broken trust reads Part II. Each part contains true insight and workable advice that is tailored to the position each spouse finds himself or herself in. The goal is to get spouses working as a team in a respectful, positive way while maintaining each partner's motivation to work on the marriage. The content is comprehensive and timely. Emotional and sexual affairs are covered in depth, as are various online indiscretions such as fake dating profiles and online porn. Of particular relevance is the coverage of inappropriate opposite-sex friendships, "partner predators" and "spouse scavengers" (people who go after married or committed people) and the role of personal technology including text messaging and social media. From its inspired approach to its user-friendly and effective content, this marriage-saver is destined to change the way couples cope with affairs and opposite-sex friendships.show more
