'One husband's confession you might be tempted to hand to your other half next time he does something infuriating' Daily Mail
'Could genuinely help save a few rocky marriages' Literary Review
One night during his divorce, after one too many vodkas and a phone-in-therapist's advice to 'journal his feelings,' Matthew Fray started a blog. As he tried to piece together how his ex-wife went from adoring to angry he realised that even though he was a decent guy, he was kind of a bad husband.
From the raw, uncomfortable and darkly humorous stories he shared about the lessons he's learned from his failed marriage comes this strangely hopeful guide to saving relationships. This is How Your Marriage Ends offers immediately actionable advice to help readers identify toxic behaviour patterns in their own lives, and break them out of the cycles of dysfunction that ruin relationships.
This is a must-read for people in any stage of a relationship, whether it's near the beginning or nearing the end.
Good people can be bad partners - here's how to ensure that isn't you.
