Remarriages are harder than firsts! Discover 10 keys to success—including communication, money, sex, step-kids, and more.
While we joke that marriage should come with a manual, for remarriages, it’s absolutely essential! The divorce rate for second marriages is 60 percent, compared to 50 percent for firsts.
Having counseled couples for more than 30 years and conducted original research, I know the pitfalls and the landmines. Unfinished business with exes (and other old baggage), pressures of dealing with debt and handling money, blending families, finding time and space for sex, managing conflict, and more can strain second marriages to the breaking point.
The Remarriage Manual is a culmination of my work—providing insights, stories, and tools that I’ve used to direct countless remarried couples toward lasting happiness (including my own). Whether you’re thinking of remarrying or you’re already remarried, this book is for you.
