If you liked this show, you should follow Conversations About Divorce.

As a divorce coach and blogger,  I hear lots of stories about people's marriages - they write and share the awful things that have been going on, often times for years, Then they say they really feel like throwing in the towel and calling it quits but should they?

They feel guitly, scared, embarassed, ashamed, afraid for the kids, can't afford to leave and sometimes even wonder if their reason for wanting out is good enough.

If things are so bad and have been so bad for so long why do they stay? What keeps them from leaving?

Joining me for ths Conversation is Alex Delon, author of Leaving You ... For Me. Alex left her marriage of 47 years, with a medicare card in her pocket and bravely entered singledom. In this frank, honest and vulnerable Conversation Alex shares how she was pressured to accept her marriage for so long, normalized the mistreatment and rationalized staying until the final straw.

You'll find a synopsis of the show at Mandy's blog.
