Happily Ever After—The Second Time Around!
Are the scars from an unsuccessful first marriage keeping you from marrying a second time? Are you afraid of committing again—even if you think you've found the right person? Then this book is meant for you.
Husband-and-wife therapists Doug and Naomi Moseley show you how to get past the disappointment of a broken marriage and take positive control of your romantic life. You'll learn to identify what went wrong the first time, overcome any lingering doubts or insecurities, and embrace the joys and rewards that only a successful marriage can offer.
The second time around also brings with it the complications of past histories. Here, you'll learn the best ways to deal with: ex-spouses and in-laws, stepchildren, finances, prenuptial agreements, and much more!
With the help of this book, you can let go of the past and enter into your marriage of a lifetime!
