How to Recognize Your Future Ex-Husband
(The same would apply to recognizing your Future Ex-Wife)
The best way to avoid divorce, even before you get married, is to understand the power of the “R” word, i.e., rationalization. This is the process of trying to create a sense of logic for something that we know is wrong. Oftentimes it is the quicksand that devours our ability to reason in the first few weeks and months of dating.
When someone asks me to describe my new book, How to Recognize Your Future Ex-Husband in two sentences or less, this is what I tell them. The essence of the book is about understanding the rationalization process and how it obstructs our ability to identify the early warning signs of trouble ahead.
