This thoroughly researched volume examines the emotional process of divorce, from the characterological struggle that leads to the breakup through the difficult adjustments that come after the marriage is over. Illustrated throughout with evocative case examples, the book explores why marriages fail, the feelings and reactions of both the rejecting and rejected partners, the psychodynamics of jealousy, the possibility of reconciliation, and the impact of divorce on children. Psychological and cultural perspectives are combined to provide valuable conceptual and clinical insights for professionals working with individuals and families in crisis.
