They say there's a fine line between love and hate. There is. I fell in love with a monster. He used me. He destroyed me. He made a fool out of me. I didn't know it at the start. You never do. You think you have found the man of your dreams. You think nothing could break you apart. How wrong you are. I loved Marcus Tandem with everything that was me. To him, I was just a business deal, a way to keep something he'd worked hard for. He never had any intentions of returning my affections. He never wanted me in his life. But I wanted him in mine. When you fall in love with the devil, you expect to get burned. Marcus burned me. He consumed me. He devastated me. Somewhere inside, I knew he was no good. I just prayed having me in his life might be enough. I hold onto that small hope, that maybe, just maybe, somewhere deep down in his soul, he might love me too. Someday.

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."

From wickedly funny to sweetly poignant, these humorous essays explore how an obsession with fly-fishing affects a person's romantic relationships.

Some of the hilarious situations to be found in these pages include that of a young obstetrician husband whose trout-fishing weekends in the Catskills take precedence over delivering babies; a wife who comes close to torching all the fly rods, chicken necks, and fishing books right in the front yard; and a school librarian who wakes up in a soaked sleeping bag when her boyfriend takes her backpacking for brook trout.
