    One thought on “Sacred Cows: The Truth About Divorce and Marriage”

    1. I was underwhelmed by this book. There were pros and cons to it. I might recommend it, but only to someone actually actively going through a divorce. Why? PROS* They bring up some really good points about the state of sociology/ relationship research today* They offer salient critiques of some of the arguments used against divorceNS* They overuse the "cows" thing from the title, and it feels condescending. Phrases like, "this idea needs to mooove over," or, "put this one out to pasture!" It goes [...]

    2. This is the best book on divorce and marriage that I've read in a decade. I've been through a divorce myself (once when my parents were divorced and once when I myself got divorced), and I wish this book had been out while I was going through either of those painful times.There are many myths about divorce that this books dispels -- including ones that get treated as gospel by many divorce and marriage counselors.The Tellers are at their best when dispelling the marriage counseling cows and the [...]

    3. As a Sociologist who is a single Christian female, I’m required to look at the whole picture and examine the evidence and underlying meanings as they are, not as I want it to be. I must say that while reading this book, the scenarios made perfect sense and the “dictionary of divorce talk” was incredibly hilarious but true. Although I do believe in Marriage as being a holy covenant, I’ve seen too many instances of toxic unholy marriages (my own parents as a prime example) that have had se [...]

    4. Excellent analytic review of common prejudices!The authors do a great job of breaking down to digestible pieces difficult common stereotypes about divorce and marriage without taking sides.

    5. As a woman who married and divorced twice, once in my 20s without kids and once in my 40s with kids, I loved the message of this book. I have been seen as a failure (two failed marriages!), a person who doesn't know what commitment means (I have had numerous committed relationships), and a damaged person (because only people who couple up for life are "normal"). I love that the Tellers are willing to address every misconception about divorce with a level head and studies. I agree with them; when [...]

    6. Wow. So it turns out I have been a cow and I didn’t know it. I thought I was being a supportive and helpful friend, but in reality I was unconsciously reiterating long-held beliefs that people tell themselves and others. Sacred Cows refreshingly exposes that these are simply not true. I found myself in a bit of shock a few times as the book revealed notions that I previously thought to be truths but actually don’t make sense at all. While the book focuses on a serious topic, it is so delight [...]

    7. I found it to be an altogether short but meaningful read. It doesn't really offer any practical advice for what to do when you're trying to save a marriage or get a divorce. It merely examines some of the preconceived notions that society has regarding whatever elements may or may not become relevant when a couple admits that they are considering getting a divorce. I think it's a worthwhile read for anyone who is seriously considering either the possibility of marriage or the possibility of a di [...]

    8. What a fascinating look at the myths surrounding relationships and divorce. I found this book, though dealing with a serious subject, the kind of book that has you laughing ruefully as well as nodding your head. There were so many "ahah" moments for me I wished I had the opportunity to discuss the book - so I would recommend it as a possible book club selection. Well researched, beautifully easy to read, I never felt lectured to or put down. *I received my copy from NetGalley in exchange for an [...]

    9. Fitting that I would finish this on the first anniversary of the finalization of my divorce! No regrets - I am glad I married who I did. I had a great time and learned a lot. Looking forward to the next chapter of my life now :)This book is insightful and gives you ammunition when you hear all of the arguments for and against both marriage and divorce (and you will). Commence with the cow tipping.

    10. As a male who has never been married and doesn't really like the idea of marriage, I found this book to be fascinating. I love how this book kinda tears though social norms and really lays bare all of the prejudices that society creates around divorce. There isn't always good person and a bad person. People simply can stop liking each other, and that is ok.

    11. A sassy little book that's equal parts silly and insightful. At first I found the playful nature of the writing off-putting, but the fact that the authors validated all of my feelings and positions on divorce and marriage helped me get through this book. I would recommend this book. If you don't mind a little bit of goofiness, there is a lot of great insight to be gleaned from it.

    12. Interesting book because the authors tried to turn a mundane and always unfortunate topic into a playful read. I personally did not appreciate or understand the connection between divorce and cows, but it is interesting, at times funny, and engaging.

    13. A friend sent this to me at just the right time. This book focuses on the false cultural assumptions that add guilt, fear, and shame to the lives of people going through divorce. The book is also funny and enjoyable to read. I would recommend this to anyone.

    14. Recommended by Tim Ferris. Book has excellent points but feels dumbed down. Interview with authors by Tim Ferris is excellent, but skip the book unless you need the lessons.
