In this episode, I interview Vikki Stark, author of Runaway Husbands: The Abandoned Wife's Guide to Recovery and Renewal. Vikki shares her own story of being an abandoned wife and what led her to researching and then writing the book. She discusses the ambivalence and anger that runaway husbands show towards their abandoned wives. In many cases, men who abandon are in other relationships prior to the abandonment. She provides advice on helping kids (both younger kids and adult children) getting through this event. She also covers the real life physical impact that women experience when going through this traumatic event. She provides tips on stopping the obsessive thoughts that women have after the abandonment and not getting stuck in the healing process. She also offers advice on dealing with the other woman when there are kids involved.
