Despite the fact that more than 40 percent of Canadian marriages end in divorce each year, over 70 percent of divorced people eventually remarry and fail again - over 50 percent of the time. Among the many reasons for the failure of these second marriages between supposedly older and wiser participants, the problems stemming from step-parenting and the blending of the families ranks high, explains psychologist and author Scott Wooding in this comprehensive and ground-breaking look at the challenges faced by couples starting over again.

Starting with the breakup itself, and after outlining the pitfalls and hurdles surrounding the love which most adults assume will lead to new found happiness, Dr. Wooding presents a comprehensive roadmap, a one step-at-a-time guide to successful remarriage for parents and children alike.
