The 8 Best Books About Divorce

Although it is unfortunate, about 40 to 50 percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce.
Going through a divorce is difficult for both spouses and the children involved. However, there are people willing to help during these difficult times.
In this article, we will share some of the best books about divorce. Read on to get started.
1. Reconcilable Differences
Although many expect divorced couples do not get along after a grueling and long divorce, many couples choose to still make their families work.
In her book, Reconcilable Differences, Cate Cochran examines ten unique divorces her divorce included.
These divorces are what she calls “successfully failed marriages.” In said divorces, couples found peace and a way to move forward with their lives without resorting to bitter feelings and damaged children.
This book is helpful to any couple going through a divorce who want to end in amicable terms and move on with their lives.
Cochran says, “When our marriage failed, my ex-husband and I tried an unusual arrangement to keep our family together. We share a house. He lives upstairs, I live downstairs, and our young children and dog float between us.”
This system might not be ideal for every couple, but at least they know it can be done.
2. On Your Own Again
Even when some marriages become difficult, spouses are still used to their routine and each other. After the separation and divorce, it can be quite difficult to get used to a life on your own.
In his book, On Your Own Again, Keith Anderson offers some insight to couples who are ready to move forward. He wants people to not only put the pieces back together but also build a stronger happy life.
This is a step-by-step guide anyone can relate to no matter their gender, sexual orientation or age.
3. A Parent’s Guide to Divorce
After a divorce, many parents worry about what the effect will be on their kids.
In this book, A Parent’s Guide to Divorce: How to Raise Happy, Resilient Kids Through Turbulent Times, Karen Becker want to assure parents it will all be okay.
She addresses conflict and coaches parents on how to make the best out of a bad situation and create strong family bonds as they embrace their new normal.
4. If You’re in My Office, It’s Already Too Late
As a successful divorce lawyer, James J. Sexton has seen it all. In his book, If You’re in My Office, It’s Already Too Late, Sexton tries to help couples who are considering divorce determine if their marriage can survive.
He has helped thousands of couples go through a divorce and has learned a thing or two about when it’s too late for a marriage. This book is a guide for couples who want to figure out if their marriage has or hasn’t reached the point of no return.
According to Sexton a lot of problems in the marriage start when couples fail to have honest communication. If you think there’s still hope to save your marriage, this book is worth a read.
5. A Man, A Can, A Plan
Despite the fact that some marriages divide the responsibilities 50/50, there are still some people that have no clue how to do the things their former spouse used to take care of.
Some people used to let their spouse take care of the cooking, grocery shopping and even picking up the dry-cleaning. Meanwhile, they took care of taking the trash out and making house repairs.
Although the title suggests otherwise, this book is for any person that doesn’t know how to cook or effectively shop at a grocery store.
David Joachim offers 50 easy-to-follow recipes for those who need to learn to cook after their divorce and want to avoid eating takeout every night.
The book offers 4 breakfast, 8 sandwiches, and 25 dinner recipes among others.
6. This Isn’t the Life I Ordered
What a better way to start moving on from a divorce than to read about someone who has already been through it.
In her book, This Isn’t the Life I Ordered, Jennifer Weigel provides a first-person narration of her experience going through a divorce.
This book is half a memoir and has a manual for how to get over a divorce. By using her great sense of humor, she assures readers everything will be okay.
7. Talking to Children About Divorce
As a family and marriage therapist, Jean McBride has helped thousands of families deal with the aftermath of divorce.
In her book, Talking to Children About Divorce: A Parent’s Guide to Healthy Communication at Each Stage of Divorce: Expert Advice for Kids’ Emotional Recovery, she guides families on how to openly discuss divorce with their children.
She offers tips and tools so everyone in the family can have open and honest conversations.
8. Getting Back Out There
No matter how long you were married for, dating is a difficult step you have to take sooner or later.
For many, going back into the dating scene is terrifying, to say the least.
In her book, Getting Back Out There: Secrets to Successful Dating and Finding Real Love after the Big Breakup, Susan Elliot offers her readers an eye-opening approach to dating.
Not only does she want you to be ready for what’s next, but she also wants you to realize what you might have done wrong before. According to Elliot, learning how to catch someone’s eye and flirt won’t create a new lasting relationship.
In fact, unless people are aware of their past mistakes and patterns, they will do it over again.
This book can help people identify red flags, keep their standards high, develop healthy boundaries, and more.

Fast fact about writing
