The Status Quo

Neither separation nor divorce is a remedy for healing bad relationships

Neither  separation  nor  divorce  is  a panacea for healing bad relationships. In  fact,  it is no way  of healing  at all. Separation  is  a  traumatic  event,  a desperate cry from the soul:  »I can’t go on like this any longer!«

Until now, separation has always been  what  everyone  involved  was striving to avoid at all cost. So we stay imprisoned in the relationship instead, partly because it feels so much like home. It feels like what we watched being lived, no matter how bad it was.

The  purpose  of  this  book  is  to point out a possible way for »partners in crisis« to be able to come closer together and  finally let go of each
other.

Separation can be the end of something that has lost its meaning.
