woulda. coulda. shoulda.A divorce coaches guide to staying married.
Don't become a woulda. coulda. shoulda.
Imagine there was a “secret recipe” to a successful and everlasting marriage… would you want it? Of course! And who better to stir it up than a woman who figured it all out just a bit too late… after she signed her divorce papers.
Jennifer Hurvitz, author of the best-selling book, One Happy Divorce: Hold the Bulls#!t, offers a no-B.S. look at what the divorce process really looks like for those contemplating a separation or divorce or those already going through one. Take a deep breath and read as Jennifer shares her insight into what the “greener grass” honestly looks like. Jen hopes to change some minds… and save a few marriages.
“It’s one of a kind. Again, like the last book, (One Happy Divorce), it’s honest and raw but this time it’s also self-reflective. It’s not easy to admit to yourself (let alone the whole world) that maybe you would’ve, could’ve, should’ve, done something differently. It’s a peek at “the other side of the grass” that asks “is it actually greener? Or maybe not?” Most importantly, this book (Woulda. Coulda Shoulda.) explores the parts of divorce that no one seems to explain before it’s too late. Of course, it’s just one woman’s journey... but OMG it’s so relatable on so many levels. For me it was so on point about marriage that at times I thought it was my own story. Lastly, she doesn’t just lay it all out there, she offers solutions too that seem so easy but are often overlooked or brushed aside when the ego is involved. Such a good read.”
One Happy Divorce
One Happy Divorce is a bold dose of reality coupled with sound advice for those divorcees who just want to keep things civil and “hold the BS.” Hurvitz' tone is spunky, irreverent, and at times, laugh-out-loud funny as she explores topics from nesting to single parenting to hosting Passover dinner as a newly- single mom. Through Hurvitz' heartfelt and honest stories, readers will gain an understanding of what a happy divorce can look like and how to make it work.
Hurvitz started her dating and relationship blog, The Truth Hurvitz, after she and her husband separated. The blog became an overnight success, even garnering attention from an LA agency that approached her for a sitcom about her family. Her book, One Happy Divorce, soon followed. “After my divorce, I felt lost and alone,” says Hurvitz. “But ironically enough, I always had one person by my side… my EX. I learned that divorced couples actually can be kind to each other, but it takes work. I got inspired to share my story on how to have a healthy, happy divorce. I thought it was important to spread my message: A happy marriage takes work; so does a happy divorce. You just have to check your egos at the door and put your kids first.”
Hurvitz explains that her book isn’t a self-help on coping with divorce. “No ‘how to get over it’ or ‘man-hating’ allowed!” says Weintraub. “Divorce is difficult; a struggle. It takes work. This book is for the truth-seekers, those willing to jump into reality and hopefully learn from the mistakes I made along the way.”
