Page 158 Books welcomes author Jennifer Hurvitz to discuss her new book woulda. coulda. shoulda.: A Divorce Coach’s Guide to Staying Married.
Imagine there were a “secret recipe” to a successful and everlasting marriage, would you want it? Of course you would! 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. In woulda. coulda. shoulda., Hurvitz 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 she shares her insight into what the “greener grass” honestly looks like.
Well-known for her humor and candor about all things divorce and relationships, Hurvitz is the voice behind the popular Doing Divorce Right podcast (named one of the 5 Best Divorce Podcasts to Get You Through It All in 2018 by women.com, with nearly 15,000 downloads and counting). She is also author of the popular blog, The Truth Hurvitz (10,000 hits monthly). Her new book takes a different approach, instead focusing on married couples who want to stay married. Sharing personal experiences and laugh-out-loud insights from her own divorce journey, Hurvitz paints an honest (at times brutally so) picture of what it’s like to be divorced, and tips for how to avoid it.
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. (The pilot for the series, written by Hurvitz, went on to win Best Television Episode Screenplay at the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival.) Her best-selling book, One Happy Divorce, soon followed.
