Helps me understand so much about your Xers that this late Boomer finds mystifying. I did, however, put it to down because it’s time to feed my…CATS. Four of them. You seem like a nice person; I’m trying to put aside the fact that you hate cats. Trying to move on. After I feed said FOUR cats, I shall return to In Spite of Everything and probably read till midnightish when I expect to finish it. While I read, at least TWO cats shall be close by.

I come from the perspective of a long term marriage (just celebrated our 40th) that began as the divorce revolution was picking up steam. Many of our friends didn’t make it. I am also a marriage therapist and writer who thinks that my colleagues should read your book. Back in the 1970s the field slipped into a “neutrality” approach to whether marriages succeed or end in divorce. Your story is an antidote to that misbegotten ethic. If you’d like to communicate about this outside the blogosphere, let me know:

Your style is fabulous! I am a mid-lifer who’s parents divorced back in the late 50′s when it was most uncommon, to say the least.
But I’m really writing to ask you if you might consider doing a blog interview. I am a social worker/life coach. I recently launched my website/blog – http://www.rebuildyourlifecoach.com. My specific focus is on working with people to help them rebuild their lives beyond their personal adversities, and hopefully recreate good and meaningful lives despite…
Once a month I interview someone who has successfully been able to do this. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing some incredibly inspirational people thus far. You can see one such interview at:

Divorce is one topic I have not hit upon as yet. You would be a perfect person for this.
Hoping you’ll say yes; but certainly understand if you can’t now that your book is taking off.
Thank you for your consideration.
Best.

It was amazing. I am a child of parents who are still together after many years. But I still found what you had to say valuable because you helped me understand the experiences of my friends who are the product of divorced households. My previous attitude had been “get over it.” Now I see how tough it is to live with that legacy. Thanks very much.

Best, Jon
