I found "Divorcing" The Complete Guide for Men and Women by Melvin Belli and Mel Krantzler was a good reference.<p>
I am not sure if I agree with their attitude that divorce can be a wonderful learning experience--but the rest of it is good. <p>Good luck....what an awful experience isn't it?<p>Take Care

Thank you very much for the suggestions.<p> <blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><hr>I am not sure if I agree with their attitude that divorce can be a wonderful learning experience--but the rest of it is good. <p>Good luck....what an awful experience isn't it?<hr></blockquote><p>It's hard to belive there's any good in this..An awful experience seems to be right! I try hard to administer to myself, convince myself I'm ok. Often, though, I just feel like I'm just a walking hurt..<p>And people recover from this? <p>Ok, then I will too...<p>Dan

hi. The best book i can recommend is "Rebuilding" by Bruce Fisher. It is so good that Relationships Australia, (countrywide relationship couselling centres here where i live) use it as a base for their recovery from divorce courses. I found it to be really good for me. And do people survive? - yes they do - i know from personal experience. Read my post, it may help you ...<p>http://www.marriagebuilders.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=34&t=005410<p>Take care

Thanks all; I've ordered each of the books suggested. <p>I've also looked for support groups in my area, for a little face to face support, but nothing! <p>As usual, MB has proven to be a blessing. What a great place in a terrible time!<p>Prayers for all here to find what they're looking for..<p>Dan

Dear Dan:<p>I found a church that was holding Divorce Care recovery classes in my area. They really helped because I was in a group with people all experiencing the same grief and pain that I was. They helped with the anger, dissappointment and questions on visitations and all the other problems divorce causes. This web site is a great help when you need to connect but sometimes a real person face to face is what you need. Divorce Care has a web page you can go to and see if there are any classes near you. It's free and helpful.<p>erigby

{{{{dan}}}} we're here, supporting you. We cyber-love you! Dan, you know that I'm moving out of my family home in 10 days. The pain is great, but the anticipation of a better, happier life is beginning to tip the scales a bit. I got a book of quotes from the library. They're by famous and not so famous people. They're simple, yet can be uplifting. The book is called "Untying the Knot" by Deborah Brodie. It's helping me a teenie tiny bit. I'm praying for you!!!<p>PEACE,<p>Kari
