Although the book is written from a sociological perspective, the combination of theory and practical insights make it accessible to a wide variety of readers. It aims to generate discussion and deepen understanding of an area into which there has been minimal research in Ireland and which poses a range of important questions for future researchers, practitioners and policy-makers.

Events and Feelings at the Time of Separation
This chapter presents and analyses data on the events and processes that occurred around the time of separation. (The data are summarised in Appendix 2.) Lengthy excerpts from all fourteen interviews are included because it was important for the women to outline in detail their reasons for initiating separation or the circumstances surrounding how they learned about their husbands’ infidelity. The chapter continues the focus on the second research question concerning the events and processes that lead to separation and also discusses the third question about the losses experienced while transitioning through separation.
