From reading the reasons for divorse and how to remedy the situation, I am 100% convinced the problem would almost go away if all serious marriage minded people would read it. The reason I am still single is due to a combination of the reasons or some of them. Many people I know will have very happy and peaceful relationships if their other half will stop having unrealistic expectations about sex, money, power control, commitment, and mental psychosis.
I highly recommend the book without reservations.

I have not read the book yet, but from the excerts provided about the book it seems very informative and interesting. Both, a person reading that may be entering marriage and a person that has been in a marriage for 10 years, like myself, who may be considering divorce would choose this book.
The title is eye catching for anyone that is questioning any stage of marriage.

"Jaffe identifies the keys as sex; unrealistic expectations; money; communication; control; mental challenges and physical addictions; spouse clones, steps and the ex; growing apart; and lack of commitment. Each of these items is discussed clearly and includes helpful anecdotes."
Many of the attorneys interviewed count among their clients some of America's most famous names. The impressive list includes, among others: Eleanor Breitel Alter (who represented Mia Farrow in her divorce from Woody Allen) Irwin Buter (repped Viacom's Les Moonves), Bruce Clemens (Brad Pitt), Robert Nachshin (Barry Bonds, author Terry McMillan), Sorrell Trope (Nicolas Cage, Rosanne Barr) and Dennis Wasser (Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin).
This book provides concrete advice on how to prevent divorce from the real experts on the subject: divorce lawyers. Based on in-depth interviews wih 100 of America's leading divorce attorneys, it explains what can be done to immunize today's marriages from the ever-growing divorce epidemic.
