Publisher's Description

In an age when the pressures on marriage are heavier than ever and divorce is more accepted and easier to obtain, marriages seem to fail as often as they succeed. As an adult child of divorce, Dr. John Trent offers insights into why adult children of divorce tend to repeat their parents’ mistakes. He then lays out a plan for a lifelong marriage that is strong and healthy. Couples will learn how to avoid repeating the mistakes that often lead to divorce.

In Breaking the Cycle of Divorce, author John Trent drives a hard bargain with adult children of divorce (ACOD) by stating that they will continue under the curse of divorce unless they choose to break through to a fresh start. A product of a broken home himself, Trent pleads with ACOD’s to break this cyclical pattern, and he shows them how to go about it.
The author defines the curse of divorce as a stream that’s been dammed up, cutting off the flow of “love, support, and good modeling of a healthy marriage.” Besides pointing out twelve negative manifestations of this curse, Trent also delivers the good news of how to reverse the cycle. “You can pick a different outcome and make it your reality,” he insists.
As President of the Center for Strong Families, Dr. John Trent is dedicated to helping many emotionally injured people to break free from the devastation of divorce. He leaves the reader virtually no space to wonder if it’s worth the effort. “Well, I’m living proof that…you do so…for your children, your grandchildren, and generations even in the distant future.”
The needling questions at the end of each chapter may benefit readers beyond ACOD’s who have other destructive patterns to overcome. Some may find Trent’s textbook-approach a little cut and dried, but his truth and warmth definitely come through as well. He doesn’t sugarcoat the challenge of overcoming one’s past, but he also makes the reader feel that with Trent as a coach, and with prayer and trust in God, one can triumph. – Cheryl A. Cecil, Christian Book Previews.com

    I loved this book. Almost every problem/area of argument my husband and I face-is dealt with in this book. So many topics and reasons have light shed on them! I always knew when I grew up and married, I'd have a different relationship then the one my brother and I were exposed to. But somehow its almost programmed in you to repeat history. You and your husband really have to make a choice everyday to choose love and obedience in Christ to make your marriage work! You will defiently learn how to overcome those obstacles and reach the full potential of your marriage with the help of this book!:)

    Tyndale should have revised this book slightly before publishing. It goes off to a slow and depressing start (analyzing your problems), and finishes well (how you can triumph). It's a good book that I needed to read, but they could have accomplished the same effect with a $7 softcover book.
