Divorce, separation, property settlements, custody arrangements - the very words are enough to bring on a migraine. Everyone has heard of the passionate property fight, the wrenching custody battle. But there are plenty of happy endings as well: the ex-spouses who still socialize with their reconfigured families, the parents who sit across from one another at the Thanksgiving table or stand up side-by-side at their child's wedding. Still Friends is a tribute to people who have bucked the stereotype of the bitter divorce to create a kinder model of splitting up. It provides hope that the end of your life as a couple does not have to mean the destruction of your dreams, your friendship, or your family. Filled with real-life stories from men and women who have transcended the trauma, disappointment, and jealousy that plague the lives of many ex-couples and their children, Still Friends is a valuable resource for anyone struggling to regain balance and civility after a divorce.
