Description

Hard-hitting divorce lawyer James Sexton shares his insights and wisdom from the front lines of divorce to keep you out of his office and improve your relationship.

If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late. James Sexton knows this. After dealing with more than a thousand clients whose marriages have dissolved over everything from an ill-advised threesome with the nanny to the uneven division of carpool duties, he also knows all of the what-not-to-dos for couples who want to build—and consistently work to preserve—a lasting, fulfilling relationship. Described by former clients as a “courtroom gunslinger” and “the sociopath you want on your side,” Sexton tells the unvarnished truth about relationships, diving straight into the most common marital problems. These usually derive from dishonest—or nonexistent—communication. Even when the alleged reason for separation is one spouse’s new “personal trainer,” there’s likely a communication problem that predates the fitness kick. Symptom and root cause get confused all the time.

Sexton has spent his career working with spouses-to-be-no-longer. Reverse engineering a relationship can help to identify and fix what does not work. Ever feel like you’re holding back criticism of your spouse because you just can’t have that fight right now? Sexton will tell you to “Hit Send Now.” Maybe you aren’t as adventurous as you used to be, or need some "you time," but for some reason it seems weird or exhausting to change up the routine now. Sexton knows where that mentality leads and offers viable alternative paths to take. Though he deals constantly with the heartbreak of others, he still believes in romance and the transformative power of love. This book is his opportunity to use what he has learned to help couples that aren’t so far gone get back on track.

    Great book! What and eye opener! I seen him on the Steve Harvey show and just the short overview that was given about the book I was curious to see what it looked like from the lawyers point of view. Sometimes (almost all the time) the best advice and insight can come from someone you would least expect it from, or want to hear it from. A lot of his views on things are in line with mine. Hit the nail on the head with the social media infidelity machine! I got exactly what I was expecting from this book and then some. The main reason for reading this book was to gain insight from the professional level on all aspects of marriage and relationships and to better myself as a companion, boyfriend, fiancé, and husband.The do’s and do not’s, some things seem to be common sense but are regularly overlooked or never a thought is given to even the most obvious in a relationship.
