The Remarriage Blueprint
How Remarried Couples and Their Families Succeed or FailBook - 2013
Relationship expert Maggie Scarf shares in-depth stories of seven remarried couples--revealing the unique challenges they face as they strive to achieve lasting intimacy and familial harmony. It's estimated that 40 percent of new marriages in the US are remarriages, but the survival rate of second marriages is alarmingly low. Many remarrying couples set out with a sense of optimism, a belief that this marriage will usher in a life of happiness and family unity--but family dynamics can often strain new partnerships to the breaking point. The challenges of remarriage are pervasive, but little guidance has existed until now. Based on more than a decade of candid, revelatory interviews, The Remarriage Blueprint provides a crucial explanation of the obstacles to remarriage and the secrets to overcoming them.--From publisher description.
