It's over. The divorce is final, he's out of your house and - mostly - out of your life. Now what? Are you ready to get on with your life? Do you have dreams, plans, skills, energy for what comes next? And will you be making it happen, or letting it happen? MacGregor and Alberti have prepared a friendly, straightforward manual of advice and suggestions that assumes every woman is capable of handling life on her own. Help for emotional recovery (MacGregor is a "survivor," Alberti is a psychologist), practical matters (finances, home maintenance), dealing with your ex (be assertive!), helping your children to cope ("we didn't divorce you!"), and much more. Chapters include: Getting Off the Emotional Roller Coaster; Your Working Life; Broadening Your Horizons; "What Have I Done to My Kids?"; If Your Kids Aren't "Kids" Any More; About Your Family and Friends; Dealing with Your Ex; Dating Again; The Other Dating Game: Kids 2, Dates 0; To Marry Again - or Not?
