What a great book. This book teaches you to stop being selfish and take your partner into consideration, failures and all. Stop dwelling on the negative and focus on the positive. Give your spouse a blessing instead of an insult.
Very Readable and Very RealMay 30, 2007 Thinking of giving up on your marriage? Author Brenda Clayton knows what it feels like. She's been there, and she talks about it. She is divorced and remarried --- and the second marriage hit the rocks after several years. Finding help for the second marriage became the inspiration for much of this book. No wonder the book shines with real life! This book is honest, gritty, realistic, down-to-earth. It speaks to women who are hurting and tired --- from the perspective of someone who understands it and who has experienced it. Not preachy, not theoretical, just good help. Clayton draws on the Bible, noted marriage authors, and others, but much of her advice comes straight from her own heart. Dr. David Frisbie The Center for Marriage & Family Studies Author of 8 books, including Happily Remarried: *Making Decisions Together *Blending Families Successfully* Building a Love That Will Last
Local 'Desperate Wives' author offers tools and hopeRomance isn't dead. But sometimes it takes a little work.Carson City author Brenda Clayton has written a book called "Desperate Wives: Help and Hope for Women Considering Separation or Divorce." Clayton wrote the book for women who don't know where to turn in their marriages. "If what you're doing isn't working, what else can you try?" Clayton says. Her hope is to give women practical tools to apply in marriage. "Divorce is not always wrong, but 65% of problems are resolvable," she said. Clayton explains that, though a person may feel frustrated, there are tools that can be used. "We have to deal with conflicts in a way that's positive and affirming. In withdrawal, nothing gets solved," she said.
