Practical Guide for Women in Troubled Marriages
Beverly J. Grottkau, Ph.D. and Eva Augustin Rumpf
Till Divorce Do Us Part is designed to meet the needs of women in troubled marriages who are not prepared to face the threat of divorce. The authors explore the personal, legal, and financial factors that must be addressed by women in order for them to assess the nature of their relationships, reduce the harmful psychological effects of loss that divorcing women experience, increase the potential for their fair and equal treatment in the courts, and find the resources that can enhance their personal and professional lives after a divorce.
Effective strategies are offered in the treatment of children of divorce in an effort to minimize the psychological trauma children experience as they attempt to adjust to the loss and to accommodate to a new and unfamiliar family structure.
The authors discuss the legal and financial implications of divorce, women and depression, and the many problems of dealing with children before, during, and after a divorce and finally, the problems of rebuilding one’s life following a divorce.
