Bottom line: if you are divorced with kids still at home you’re better off not dating or remarrying. You should devote your time to raising your children. The odds of remarrying at this time and not becoming a twice-divorced statistic are not in your favor.
However, they are not insurmountable, and, as Mr. Deal realistically observes, many single parents do not want to wait-especially if they believe they have met someone they want to spend the rest of their life with.
Therefore, the rest of the book is devoted to detailing what steps a single parent needs to take to not only prepare themselves but their children for what is at stake and what they have in store for themselves.
If you’re thinking of remarrying, this would be a good book to read before embarking on that adventure.
