Books on dating after divorce

A magnanimous person knows their life has a greater purpose; this is both attractive to others and a recipe for a successful future relationship.

God has a unique plan for each person and Duffy asks the reader to be open to discovering that plan.

The quality of availability discussed in this initial chapter acts as a springboard for the other qualities discussed by Duffy, and thus this chapter is by far the most important of the book, and the most likely to help the reader rebuild after a divorce.

The next three chapters discuss being affectionate, being a communicator, and being faithful.

Duffy attempts to cover a great deal of material in one chapter, including the four temperaments, the five love languages, as well as communication pitfalls and bad habits.

While the scope of the book does not allow for an in-depth look at all these topics, the author provides a very thorough appendix of helpful books that discuss these subjects in further detail.

Of these important qualities, the chapter on being a communicator is most valuable.

Divorce, as Duffy points out, often involves a breakdown of communication.

In the chapter “Being Faithful,” Duffy shares her own experiences with God’s mercy in her life through Eucharistic adoration and reception of the Church’s sacraments.

The reflection questions in this chapter are great points of consideration for any Catholic thinking about entering into another relationship, because as Duffy explains, “as faith grows so will confidence, trust in God, peace of mind and happy disposition.” A person at peace is a person ready to give and receive love.
