It's over. The divorce is final, your ex is out of your house and—mostly—out of your life. Now what? Are you ready to get on with your life? Do you have dreams, plans, skills, energy for what comes next? And will you be making it happen, or letting it happen? MacGregor and Alberti have prepared a friendly, straightforward manual of advice and suggestions that assumes every woman is capable of handling life on her own. Help for emotional recovery (MacGregor is a “survivor,” Alberti is a psychologist), practical matters (finances, home maintenance), dealing with your ex, helping your children to cope (“we didn't divorce you!”), and much, much more.
“This is an excellent resource for women facing the challenges of reconstructing rich and full lives after divorce. In this easy-to-read guide, MacGregor and Alberti provide clear pathways and practical information for coping with the complex changes in the aftermath of divorce.
