Couples in Crisis : Overcoming Affairs & Opposite-Sex Friendships: A Fast & Innovative Approach to Rebuild Trust & Revive Your Marriage (Not Talk It to Death)
Leading marriage author-expert and couples mediator Debra Macleod, B.A., LL.B., provides a ground-breaking and plain-spoken approach to tackling affairs and inappropriate opposite-sex friendships. She outlines an innovative way for spouses to work as allies to rebuild trust and repair their marriage: the betrayed spouse reads Part I of the book, while the unfaithful spouse reads Part II. Each part contains frank insight and workable advice that is tailored to the position each spouse finds himself or herself in. The goal is to get couples working as a team as quickly as possible. ** But be warned -- this book doesn't pull any punches. While it is insightful, fair and very encouraging to partners who are sincerely motivated to rebuild, it is alive to the realities of infidelity and particularly to the behavior displayed by some unfaithful partners (i.e. downplaying the indiscretion, refusing to end the affair, shifting blame, refusing to share passwords or unlock cell phones, etc.) which can make overcoming infidelity particularly challenging. This book is less concerned with delivering "warm fuzzies" and more concerned with helping motivated couples take the real-world steps that are necessary to keep their marriages and family lives intact, and to enjoy the benefits of a loving, devoted and mature marriage moving forward. It is suitable for partners and couples who are willing to hear the "hard truth" at times, which includes looking at their own behavior and making changes when necessary.
