When I faced this life-altering situation there were no books on mid-life crises available. I wrote this book to be exactly what I would have wanted someone to place in my hands on day one. If you were expecting a magic answer that will give you your spouse and your life back, then put this book down and buy a different one - those books will not get him or her back for you either. Those books will make you false promises and give you hope. If you are ready to face the world as the remaining sane parent and save the rest of your family, then read on and let's get started. This guide is for you, not for the spouse that is causing this problem. You will not be able to change your spouse - only they can do that - but you can change yourself, and that will change how you see the whole world.
