"When it comes to divorce, there's the old way- and there's the fair way. I know, because I learned the hard way." —Karen Stewart Divorce is costly. It costs money-masses of your money. It costs time-hours and hours spent in meetings, on the telephone, and completing paperwork and depositions and filing affidavits. It costs heartache as battle lines are drawn and loved ones, especially children, suffer emotional pain. Karen Stewart's own harrowing story of divorce is an unqualified testament to these truths. Her experience led her to believe that there had to be a better way to end a marriage and get on with life. Her ideas and vision evolved into Fairway Divorce Solutions, which provides a model for divorce with dignity and an end to traditional divorce. the Fairway Process Offers: a strategic step-by-step process that brings win-win resolutions regarding children, property, and money a decision-making process that leads to consensus and fair outcomes a focus on the children of the marriage a plan to control costs that can often escalate out of control in typical divorce proceedings a process that rejects blame or victimization a focus on the future that has a well-thought-out plan for parenting and finances. More and more Canadians are turning to this new divorce approach to help them transition to new beginnings. If you are facing the reality of divorce, you owe it to yourself, our chi8ldren, and your bank account to read a book that offers promise, not dread, and calm instead of a storm. "This Practical step-by-step process will not only save considerable time, energy and money, but most of all it will provide a clear path for a hopeful future." —Les Hewitt

National Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2017 Named Best Book of 2017 by Esquire, Times Literary Supplement, Elle Magazine, LitHub, Publishers Weekly, Financial Times, Guardian, Refinery29, Popsugar, and Globe and Mail "A brilliant novel. I am full of admiration." —Philip Roth "One of America’s most important novelists" (New York Times), the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The History of Love, conjures an achingly beautiful and breathtakingly original novel about personal transformation that interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals—an older lawyer and a young novelist—whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert. Jules Epstein, a man whose drive, avidity, and outsized personality have, for sixty-eight years, been a force to be reckoned with, is undergoing a metamorphosis. In the wake of his parents’ deaths, his divorce from his wife of more than thirty years, and his retirement from the New York legal firm where he was a partner, he’s felt an irresistible need to give away his possessions, alarming his children and perplexing the executor of his estate. With the last of his wealth, he travels to Israel, with a nebulous plan to do something to honor his parents. In Tel Aviv, he is sidetracked by a charismatic American rabbi planning a reunion for the descendants of King David who insists that Epstein is part of that storied dynastic line. He also meets the rabbi’s beautiful daughter who convinces Epstein to become involved in her own project—a film about the life of David being shot in the desert—with life-changing consequences. But Epstein isn’t the only seeker embarking on a metaphysical journey that dissolves his sense of self, place, and history. Leaving her family in Brooklyn, a young, well-known novelist arrives at the Tel Aviv Hilton where she has stayed every year since birth. Troubled by writer’s block and a failing marriage, she hopes that the hotel can unlock a dimension of reality—and her own perception of life—that has been closed off to her. But when she meets a retired literature professor who proposes a project she can’t turn down, she’s drawn into a mystery that alters her life in ways she could never have imagined. Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a profound, mesmerizing novel of metamorphosis and self-realization—of looking beyond all that is visible towards the infinite.

What is your biggest challenge in life right now? What have you experienced in your life that is holding you back from the life you desire? If you were able to remove this challenge, what would your life look like? What would you be doing? How would you feel? If you could remove the fear, the stress, the anger, and the worry, what would that do for you? What if you could take away the overwhelm, the shame, the guilt, the loneliness, the bitterness? How would your life be different? How would your relationship with your kids be different? How would your relationship with your spouse, significant other or future significant other and family be different? What if you could discover the REAL you? The YOU that is deep down inside, longing to be set free? What if you could reframe all that you have gone through into joy and gratitude? What if you allowed your life experiences to become the passion that fuels your purpose? What if you chose to create a new beginning, right here, right now and stepped into the life you were created for? What if all of this suddenly became possible? Anthony (Tony) Fonte is a New Beginnings coach, an author, a speaker, and most importantly, a dad. Inspired by the tragic loss of his wife in 2011 and the many life experiences he has walked through, Tony began a journey of intense personal growth and vulnerability where he learned tools to help him create a new beginning for him and his daughter. He was (and still is) intentional about overcoming tragedy as well as his past, so that he can be the man, and the dad, he wants to be. Now, he teaches these same tools to help others achieve their new beginning and transform their lives and their relationships. You can feel, see, and hear the passion when Tony talks about these trials and the triumphs. The systems and tools Tony uses in his one-on-one sessions, his small groups, or his large groups from the stage help others achieve results extraordinarily fast. He believes that life is a journey, not a sprint, and hopes that New Beginnings will help you find the life that YOU were created to live.

Abuse & Betrayal

The Cautionary True Story of Divorce, Mistakes, Lies and Legal Abuse

Page: 180

View: 8588

Abuse & Betrayal is author Richard Joseph's deeply personal autobiographical account of his experiences with marriage, divorce, and the effects of his ex-wife's behavior. Sure to strike a chord with anyone who has ever been in a dysfunctional relationship or divorce situation, it follows the couple from happy beginnings to their tumultuous divorce, and describes the abuse and alienation Richard faced during and after the marriage. Richard's narration touches upon sensitive topics such as the emergence of his ex-wife's narcissistic personality, her obsession with status, and the inappropriate behavior she exhibited. But the most raw and exposed of his passages are those dedicated to describing his ex-wife's attempts at alienating him from his daughters, which makes Abuse & Betrayal a story not just about Richard's divorce, but also about his feelings and efforts toward parenting and fatherhood. Filling a void in the media market, Abuse & Betrayal delivers a story uniquely told from the male perspective and draws attention to important issues that too often get swept under the rug. Through Richard's encounters with lawyers, the courts, and prison, it raises questions about the fairness of the divorce process in our country and speaks to the biases in the legal and judicial systems.

The role divorce plays on emotional stability can be devastating for many men and women—anger, resentment, and a sense of loss often linger well beyond the life and death of the marriage. Since much of the stigma of the past has been lifted, many are discovering that it is easier to work through these negative emotions, turning this life-altering event into a positive one by creating a better, more fulfilling life after divorce. Whether a marriage was short-term or long-term, the pain felt by the individuals involved in either type is often quite similar after it dissolves. There are also key behaviors and emotions unique to both the individual leaving the relationship as well as the one being left. What both partners have in common, however, is a deep sense of loss. Life After Divorce, Revised & Updated guides readers through this confusion, offering tips on how to heal, secrets to dealing with both new and old relationships outside the marriage, how to communicate with children caught in the crossfire, and how to deal with the effects of financial instability in the home. In this updated and revised edition of the classic book Life After Divorce, bestselling author and therapist Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse outlines the most common issues associated with the dissolution of marriages—abuse, addiction, lack of communication, money, career goals, social interests, and cheating are just a few. Readers learn how to navigate the divorce process without the added cost of unwanted attorney fees, the difference between a collaborative and mediation divorce, and how to choose which path is right for them. Also provided are two new chapters, one focusing on adult children whose parents have chosen to divorce later in life and how they can effectively deal with the guilt associated with feeling the pressure to take sides, and the other explains how technology plays a role in the dissolution of marriages. Wegscheider-Cruse believes that each and every person has the ability to grow from the trauma of divorce, coming out a better, well-rounded individual. Peace, fulfillment, and greater self-esteem are possible after divorce, as is achieving a loving and lasting relationship with a new partner.
