Because Michele Weiner-Davis believes that divorce is not the answer, she developed an innovative method for working with couples experiencing difficult marital problems. Her approach was so successful that she knew she had to share her knowledge with the millions of couples struggling in their marriages but unable to meet with Michele personally. In 1992, she wrote, Divorce Busting which quickly became a best-seller. “The rest,” they say, “is history”.
