Download and read online Till Death Do Us Part in PDF and EPUB Every day six people in the United States are murdered by spouses or intimate partners. The stories of killer spouses tend to captivate us, as they beg the question of how so many seemingly normal and happy people manage to go over the edge. Indeed, every relationship presents "extreme moments" where scary feelings surface, yet what happens when those feelings turn to action? In Till Death Do Us Part, noted psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig, along with journalist Matt Birkbeck, presents the psychological profiles of notorious killer spouses -- from Scott Peterson and Clara Harris to Rabbi Fred Neulander and Betty Broderick. Ludwig reveals ten killer personality types. These ten personality types are defined in detail and illustrated with examples from high-profile cases along with in-depth analyses of the motivations behind the murders. The ten types range from the Betrayal/Abandonment Killer (who loses control and kills from a broken heart) to the Control Killer (who micromanages every aspect of the spouse's life) and the Black Widow/Profit Killer (who kills for money). With gripping stories and probing insight, authors Ludwig and Birkbeck examine the concept of peaceful versus violent resolution and why certain spouses believe murder is the best and only response. In an age when spousal murder is headline news, Till Death Do Us Part explores a phenomenon that many spouses can't help but think about at some point in their relationships -- which sheds light on the very notion of "happily ever after."

Download and read online The Story of a Brief Marriage in PDF and EPUB Shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize “Brave...Brilliant...This is a book that makes one kneel before the elegance of the human spirit and the yearning that is at the essence of every life.” —The New York Times Book Review "One of the best books I have read in years." —Colm Toibin Two and a half decades into a devastating civil war, Sri Lanka’s Tamil minority is pushed inexorably towards the coast by the advancing army. Amongst the evacuees is Dinesh, whose world has contracted to a makeshift camp where time is measured by the shells that fall around him like clockwork. Alienated from family, home, language, and body, he exists in a state of mute acceptance, numb to the violence around him, till he is approached one morning by an old man who makes an unexpected proposal: that Dinesh marry his daughter, Ganga. Marriage, in this world, is an attempt at safety, like the beached fishing boat under which Dinesh huddles during the bombings. As a couple, they would be less likely to be conscripted to fight for the rebels, and less likely to be abused in the case of an army victory. Thrust into this situation of strange intimacy and dependence, Dinesh and Ganga try to come to terms with everything that has happened, hesitantly attempting to awaken to themselves and to one another before the war closes over them once more. Anuk Arudpragasam’s The Story of a Brief Marriage is a feat of extraordinary sensitivity and imagination, a meditation on the fundamental elements of human existence—eating, sleeping, washing, touching, speaking—that give us direction and purpose, even as the world around us collapses. Set over the course of a single day and night, this unflinching debut confronts marriage and war, life and death, bestowing on its subjects the highest dignity, however briefly.

When one evaluate it content is their every ownership involved, even in midst of marriage or commitment. The book displays parts that women play in a relationship; it shows values in having a relationship. In addition, it will identify people’s views, realities, concepts, and experiences toward the nature of having a relationship. Many have forgotten the significant dynamics in having a healthy relationship. Therefore, it is not a male-bashing book; it is for one to address problems, get insight and knowledge on issues so a person can correct them. In order to do so, men and women had to be mentioned within the book because two people are needed to make a relationship. In addition, the book was diplomatic to give inspiration and examples to the young and the old in gaining healthy relationships. Many of the stories are funny, sad, exciting, exotic, damn sexy, and explicit from a woman’s point of view. The purpose in that is, we live in a real world and pretend not to see things for what they really are, leaving room for disappointment. The book was based on interviews, research, life experiences, and a bit of fiction. My hopes are for you to enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it again!

Once you commit to what Go has ordained, Satin will come with attempts to destroy what God has put together. Be encouraged to know that what does not destroy you will make you stronger. God can and does use every area in our life to grow us up. Our Pastor has taught us the process is much more significant than the product since going through testing enables us to grow. The exerts above are very true. Rick and I have been married for over 9 years. We decided to use our own experiences as a Christian couple to glorify God and show that even in the midst of adversity and testing and trials, with God leading us through the Holy Spirit, marriage can stand the tests of time. Our hope is to encourage a couple that might be ready to throw in the towel and give up on their marriage to lean and depend on God s Promises and be lead by Him to work through their difficulties. We also pray that we may uplift and encourage those who are single, dating, and considering marriage to follow God s Way and commit to marriage and not allow the world to determine their rules of living, but allow God s Holy Word to be their standard.

Download and read online Black Clouds in PDF and EPUB In her memoir, "Black Clouds," author Linda "Leigh" Haynes Pritchard Leonard tells the story of the life challenges she has faced. More than anything, it is a journey into God's care, revealing how He works in the lives of innocent children and people who put their trust in Him. During the early years of Leigh's abuse and abandonment, God sheltered her from the fiery darts of those who would harm her. He prevented her from realizing that her life was any different from those of her schoolmates. From being abandoned as a child to dealing with her adult life as she faced life-or-death situations, God has always been with her. She has dealt with alcohol abuse, the destruction of her home through fire, and a tortuous relationship with her biological mother. Through all of her personal challenges, God has surrounded her with His love and with angels to carry her through it all. In the end, Leigh and her husband sought God's grace and the love He holds for all of His children. They overcame many trials, much tribulation, abuse, rejection, and abandonment and have survived through God's unconditional love. Leigh's resilience and the ever-present hand of God is evident as she bravely recounts in vivid, inspiring language the traumas and tragedies she experienced throughout her life. Ultimately, "Black Clouds" is the story of one woman's survival through her strong faith in God and supportive family and friends.
