    A book to read before you do anything!

    I found this book several months after my husband moved out of our home, leaving me with three children and all the bills. I wish I had found it sooner, but still gained so much helpful information. When separation and/or divorce seems likely, I recommend that you read this book before sharing too much information about the details of your situation with others. So many questions are answered by the author. Instead, I turned to family and friends for help, later wishing I had not. I had them on "my side", but when my husband and I tried to reconcile, my family and friends were angry and resentful when my husband was around. We didn't make it, but the book helped me deal with the divorce and helped guide me through the legal process. It also helped me get through the most difficult time in my life.
