Overview

What happens when your husband is over thirty and still watches cartoons? What does it mean when you are looking for a second job and your husband spends his free time playing video games? Why do you and your spouse rarely talk?

Unfortunately, many women ignore such questions because friends, relatives and the media tell them that these problems are common. In her book When You Have Outgrown Him, Dr. Kimberly Ventus-Darks clearly identifies and confronts a concept that many feel is a taboo societal topic: Some women outgrow their mates.

Imbalances in relationships often grow as women strive for and achieve greater success and maturity than their spouses. Important problem areas Dr. Ventus-Darks examines include:

Hidden rewards of outgrowing him

Unrevealed secrets your mother did not tell you

Dangerous mistakes women make when choosing a mate

Crucial decisions on whether or not the relationship is worth saving

Now Dr. Ventus-Darks exposes the ways couples sabotage their relationships and presents constructive resolutions for relationship troubles. Women are often embarrassed to admit they may have chosen mates who are not mature or responsible or have decided to stay in a relationship even though they feel it isn't working. Adding to women's conflicting feelings is that many of these men are still loving fathers, committed family men and hard workers. With this insightful, informative and forthcoming guide, women can evaluate whether to leave a relationship or take the customized paths so they and their partners can grow together and forge fulfilling, everlasting bonds with one another.
