I have to be honest- I was very hesitant to read Conscious Uncoupling, but after just a few pages I was hooked. Unfortunately, the truth is that not all relationships can actually work out in the end. If we have the ability to maintain a sense of respect and sanity, things can progress nicely. I recommend this book to anyone who has gone through some type of trauma with regard to separation in a relationship. Whether it has been a marriage or not, there are great guidelines that can be used for everyone.
