To make up or break up? Whether you're just getting serious or have a long-term commitment, no other question causes so much heartache and self-doubt. Many other books tell you how to fix your relationship. This groundbreaking best seller is the first one to help you choose whether you should try - or you need to go.

Psychotherapist Mira Kirshenbaum draws on years of research and her work with real-life couples to help you make the right decision. She shows you how to diagnose your unique situation with self-analysis and questions like these, which get to the very heart of your problems:

  • What sins are forgivable and which ones unpardonable?
  • Is your partner questioning your opinions to the point where you doubt yourself?
  • What is your sex life really like, and how important is it?
  • Is there real love left between you, and how does it stack up against all that you find unlovable?
  • Mira Kirshenbaum provides expert guidelines that are the key to making all your choices, concrete steps that you can implement right now, and the ultimate way to determine your personal bottom line - what you need to be happy. This remarkably insightful and probing guide offers advice that lets you see the truth about your relationship - and with wisdom and compassion, it helps you act with the confidence of knowing that, whether you decide to go or stay, you are doing the very best thing.

      " this books is a really good guide for those trying to figure out if they should stay or go in a relationship... it starts you out with a scenario, followed by question(s) which build upon each other and lead up to your answer: stay or go. it is a combination of self-help and workbook. if you're one of those that keep falling into the "gray" of the relationship, this book will help you keep things "black and white", which will help you be more objective when evaluating what can be a major life decision. a good book - read it. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherish | 2/6/2014

      " Highly recommend to anyone in a relationship where they just can't decide whether it's meant to be or not. You throw out the pros/cons list and look at the relationship dynamics from a clearer perspective. Refreshing and liberating no matter which way you choose to go, you'll have certainty. "

      " given to me by a fellow therapist about relationsip ambivalence. the questions are probably the most helpful. given that its the first book I've seen on a subject that seems to have little written, its probably the best out there (from what I know) but it seems to lack some depth - I was hoping it might invite exploration of the underlying emotions/desires/longings. That being said, it's probably quite helpful for the 'decision-making', cerebral view. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Feist | 1/20/2014

      " This book helped me see the light and finally take the step toward a new life. I saw that my husband would never change and that my hopes for our marriage were just that...hopes. I moved on and it was the hardest but best decision for me and for my family. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa P. | 1/18/2014

      " Very easy reading with a great flow written in easy to understand conversational style. One of the best books I have read. Many great insights into myself and my relationships. A step by step approach to uncovering how you really feel. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 1/11/2014

      " Helped me get closure on a relationship that was bad for me. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 12/24/2013

      " A great and very detailed "diagnosis" of the type of relationship ambivalence a person is in. The book solidified the decision I had made in my previous relationships. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa Baldwin | 12/10/2013

      " Recommended reading by my grad school professor. It is really well-spoken advice. Considering I'll need to dispense such advice as a counselor later, I know this will go on my shelf at the "office". "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Suzanne | 12/3/2013

      " I read this about 10 years ago when I was with someone other than my husband. I remember that it was not worth the time spent reading it--not very helpful. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Michaud | 12/1/2013

      " Insightful. Crazy. Depressing. Hopeful. Clarity. Shocking. Confusing. A really good read for people really fucked-up in their marriage. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 9/2/2013

      " found it very confusing and round-about. Kind of like those books where you chose the next scenario, if this is this way, then choose that way, but if this is that way, then choose this way..?? "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vee | 7/5/2013

      " Great book...couldn't ask for anything more helpful! Bring on the next relationship! "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail | 4/18/2013

      " Great book...really helped when I needed to make just this decision... "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judith | 4/16/2013

      " Yeah, that's right. I read a self-help book. AND WHAT? This actually raises some interesting points. But it's clearly written to be accessible to every slice of humanity, including the hopelessly thick, and the couples described in it have names like Vinnie and Rosemary. So, you know. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 3/11/2013

      " extremely helpful not just for me but for others I have lent it to. It may just clarify what you already know on some level, or it may open your eyes to a new way of seeing the situation. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy Case | 8/9/2012

      " This book was given to me by a friend who cleary saw my ambievalance. I felt the authors approach was right on to the way I needed it to be. Since my friend doesnt want the book back Im re-reading it to highlight now. I would suggest this book to anyone who is indecisive in their relavtionship. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/3/2011

      " This book is an excellent book. I highly recommend this book. It helped me to great lengths weigh my relationship with my husband. I made a decision based on my life and what I need. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Men D. | 3/6/2011

      " Only the second self-help book I've read and the first I've finished. The mere fact that I read this book says less about my relationship than about my interest in finding vocabulary to talk about my relationship. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/25/2011

      " This book helped me move out of ambivalence and see that my marriage was the source of my unhappiness I recommend this to anyone who feels stuck and unhappy in a relationship. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 2/2/2011

      " A great and very detailed "diagnosis" of the type of relationship ambivalence a person is in. The book solidified the decision I had made in my previous relationships. "
