To D or not to D: Working towards an amicable divorce

Caught between tradition and modernity, most Indians have mixed feelings about divorce. Divorce is never the easy option in the face of marital toxicity. But sometimes it’s a necessary one, even if the last resort. To help couples navigate the minefields in the divorce terrain, To D or Not to D explores the phenomenon in depth and looks at some things they may never have thought about but which they probably should before taking such a life-changing decision. As always, Dr Vijay Nagaswami, best-selling author of the New Indian Marriage series, takes the reader down roads that need to be travelled with a light tread, pointing out along the way what one needs to keep in mind before taking a decision and that if indeed the decision to D has to be taken, an amicable divorce is neither a mirage nor an oxymoron.

3's A Crowd : Understanding and Surviving Infidelity


It is not only the aggrieved partner that needs to learn how to
recover from the shock and pain caused by a breach of faith. The
perpetrator is equally a victim of the affair.

It is a myth that only men have affairs. Who do you think are the ones they're
having their affairs with?

Affairs are not the product of our times. Infidelity has pervaded our
history, myths and culture since time immemorial. Modern
technology and freer mingling of the sexes only slightly help.

Such surprises and insightful observations abound in yet another
robust book by renowned relationships counsellor Vijay Nagaswami, in
the third of Westland's 'New Indian Marriage' series.

More than humour, more than his wit, Nagaswami's greatest quality is
his refusal to identify the villain in any piece. We are all flawed
individuals, he reminds us yet again, and sometimes make foolish
choices in the heat -- or boredom -- of the moment. But hope is at
hand. We can regret, forgive and learn to love again. And, most
importantly, cast away our guilt and our recriminations.
