No matter what your age, divorce is one of life’s greatest challenges. But while your parents, friends, and lawyers may be chock-full of advice, the truth is that young women who divorce today face a brand-new set of issues and possibilities far removed from those of women a generation before. If you’re looking for a fresh, empowering, and thoroughly modern guide to starting this new chapter of your life, Not Your Mother’s Divorce offers the ultimate roadmap—from wading through legal jargon to getting back into society—as told by your best girlfriends who’ve been there.

Based on the experiences of more than thirty women who divorced in their twenties and thirties without children, Not Your Mother’s Divorce offers camaraderie and practical counsel on:
Breaking the news to family and friends
Coping with sudden singledom—from living arrangements to changing your name
Protecting yourself financially and dividing your assets
Legalese 101—making the legal process work for you
Reentering the dating scene
How to handle encounters with your ex

Warm and insightful, Not Your Mother’s Divorce gives you the tools to find your way through this difficult time—and emerge a stronger, wiser, happier you.

From the Back Cover:

"Moffett and Touborg understand what it's like to deal with sudden "singledom" and the feelings that accompany it. In their down-to-earth guide, they help young divorcees tackle both legal and emotional problems in a tone that is by turns chatty and straightforward. Overwhelming issues are discussed with authority and sensitivity. Highly recommended."
--Library Journal, October 1, 2003

"They [the authors] offer compassionate and no-nonsense advice on everything from sharing the news about the breakup, and what to do with the wedding album, to re-entering the dating world and getting re-married."
--Bergen Record, August 5, 2003

"Not Your Mother's Divorce offers the best kind of book therapy: comforting, informative, and practical advice for a new generation of divorcees."
--Pamela Paul, author of The Starter Marriage and the Future of Matrimony

"Not Your Mother's Divorce is a witty, knowledgeable and compassionate book. A standout performance."
--Mel Krantzler, Ph.D., author of The New Creative Divorce

"Twenty-something never-marrieds have their guides and gurus, as do their older newly-single counterparts. But how does Holly go lightly back into the world when her starter marriage ends? Moffett and Toubourg's witty, informed, true-to-real-life handbook will tell her everything she needs to know, all tied up with a big shiny bow of we've-been-there compassion."
--Lynn Harris, co-creator of BreakupGirl.net and author of Breakup Girl to the Rescue! A Superhero's Guide to Love, and Lack Thereof

About the Author:
