Re: New Book Release: Nonfiction/Relationships
"'Til Death Do Us Part "
The words above are taken from a new release, 'Til Death Do Us Part , by Rene Reid Yarnell. As the sub-title indicates, it is the story of one woman facing the reality of her marriage ending after clinging to the dream that it would last until they were separated by death. The author comes to the realization that "'Til death do us part " is no longer a realistic aspiration for most couples today. After her own struggle, she proposes that a new paradigm is needed for entering into marriage and dealing with the inevitable ending of the majority of them. Through the telling of her own novel-like story, the author suggests that ending a marriage need not equate to failure. "Moving on" should mean letting go of blame and taking the good with us into new beginnings. She predicts that the movement in the future will be away from fiscal-legal bonds toward a new form of committed, publicly acknowledged unions. For some, like herself, it is likely to be a spiritual partnering.
With the longevity of life increasing, it becomes less probable that
a marriage begun at the age of 25 or 30 will last 'til death do us part.
It is conceivable that some will experience two or three 15-, 20-, 25-
year treasured relationships over their lifetime. Through the telling
of her own fairy tale romance that culminated in marital crisis, the author
raises consciousness that a more realistic mind-set is needed as couples
embrace marriage today. Of course, our human nature will always lead us
to enter relationships with the belief that they will last forever. But
how can we continue to ignore the statistical data on divorce and be surprised
when relationships end? Somewhere in our collective consciousness we must
prepare ourselves, should a breakdown occur, to emerge from our crises
more ready than ever to make sound choices - either to renew and enhance
our existing unions or to move on, perhaps giving birth to new relationships
without the usual sense of failure.
Clearly, 'Til Death Do Us Part
a lifeline to anyone who is facing, or has faced, or will face relationship
crises, transforming feelings of utter devastation into energy for marital
renewal or the decision to begin a new life. Through her own experience,
the author offers: coping mechanisms for those living with a partner afflicted
with addiction and alcoholism, a process for rebuilding trust with the
hope of renewing the marriage in a new form, a course of action for recovering
if the relationship should end. Yarnell demonstrates the courage to face
adversity head on, using painful times to make personal changes within
and assessing the circumstances to determine when to take action and when
to let go. Once she accepted the reality that her marriage was over, she
explores with the reader the future of relationships today, looking beyond
the legal and fiscal confinement of traditional marriage and searching
for alternatives - life choices wherein more emphasis is placed on the
personal and spiritual growth of ourselves and our partners.
