Self Help

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer teaches how to stop being a victim in "Pulling Your Own Strings".

Melody Beattie in "Codependent No more" shows how to stop controlling others and start caring for yourself.

Dr. Phil McGraw  (TV's Dr. Phil) provides a complete plan for reconnecting in "Relationship Rescue"

Moving Out

Warning this idea is not suitable for everyone. When you are looking at breaking up, sometimes financial pressures mean there isn't enough money for two households. A little research shows that the term "living separate and apart" does not mean you can't still be under the same roof and that you can't still share certain common expenses and of course you can certainly co-parent. As I said in the first sentence, it is not for everybody as it will require a certain degree of calmness and maturity..
