Barry & Emily McCarthy, realists in today's world (despite a 36-year first marriage), present us with the inevitable sequel to Getting It Right the First Time. In Getting It Right This Time, we pick up when the lessons offered in the first book didn't quite hit home, and the romance, myth, and wonder in the passionate love, sex, and intimacy didn't develop into a solid foundation for marriage. What went wrong, what can we learn from the mistakes of a first marriage, and how can me move on to start over? In the authors' own words, "there are two crucial learnings from a divorce. The first is to identify vulnerabilities and traps, so they do not control your life and the potential of a subsequent marriage. The second is the commitment to create a second marriage and family which is satisfying and stable."
