Dear Dr. Romance
I happen to be going through an extremely difficult time in my life
right now. My husband was unfaithful during the time that I was
"absent" from the marriage due to my mother dying from brain cancer.
Of course, there were problems long before this and this was just a
major symptom of our problems. We are trying to work it out, but we
are two people with problems of our own as well as our joint problems.
We are both in individual therapy as well as couples therapy, but I am
always open to other points of view. I am struggling with self-esteem,
self-confidence issues right now, so I am anxious to read your book It Ends With You

help I can get. I'm sure I will be reading your books and visiting
