The prospect of divorce is a painful reality for many couples in North America today. Judaism has long struggled to establish reasonable and humane options for Jewish couples contemplating divorce. In When There Is No Other Alternative, Rabbi Sandy Seltzer examines what traditional Jewish sources have to say about this difficult juncture in those individuals' lives. Seltzer explores the phenomenon of shelom bayit, domestic abuse within Jewish families, the connection between the traditional ketubah and alimony, the difficulties that confront children born of intermarried couples considering divorce, and the necessity of a get. The book is highly recommended for rabbis, marriage counselors, therapists, and divorcing couples seeking guidance.
