Great book. The chapter on envy was one of the most profound and enlightening I have ever read on that subject. ( )

This is a useful counter to narcissistic me personal transformation. " My marriage doesnt fulfill me" so my needs override that of my partner, family or children. Its gets you to think of duty and responsibilities rather then wants and desires. I dont go with the conservative use that could be made of this.But when some people spend 1000's on the wedding only to feel let down afterwards enough to think about a divorce so they can plan for another wedding... Or young men can think its ok to risk creating life yet take no responsibility for the child... I dont buy that this means that women get trapped in a violent or stifling relationship for example. Both may need help to avoid repeating dysfunctional behaviour but if on balance its best for the individuals, children and families that the marriage ends then it ends. One size fits albeit a conservative or a liberal spin does not work. The situation calls for its own solution... but both wants, needs and duty has to be part of the reflection ( )
