After Your Divorce: Creating the Good Life on Your Own
It's over. The divorce is final, he's 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. Helps for emotional recovery (MacGregor is a "survivor," Alberti is a psychologist), practical matters (credit, home repairs), dealing with your ex (be assertive!), helping your children to cope ("we didn't divorce you!"), and much, much more.
