How to Recognize Your Future Ex-Husband is a simple, clear, and concise manual for maneuvering through the initial stages of dating that helps to distinguish who to pursue and who to leave behind. The straightforward presentation is a mix of questions, answers, and personal stories that illustrate the various “themes” encountered in the dating process. The book is organized by “issues” such as anger, boundaries, conflict avoidance, money, and married men, etc., to easily access the information that is most relevant your situation. How to Recognize Your Future Ex-Husband addresses the pitfalls of the rationalization process and will help you to identify, which doubts must be listened to and which ones may be discarded in your pursuit of lasting love and marriage.

The idea for this book came about during a conversation I had with a former therapist when we were talking about how prevalent the rationalization process was among women we knew. This led to her sharing a story with me about a friend of hers who had recently called to tell her all about a new relationship and how she had found "the one." After politely listening to her friend speak almost exclusively in superlatives (based on four weeks of dating), she said, "Congratulations. I think you have just met your future ex-husband." I was so enthralled by the phrase that I began to work on a project that would evolve into this book.
