The marriage failure rates have seen a slight decrease in recent years, however, we are living in an era where more couples are experiencing long periods of separation before ultimately divorcing. The need is great and women are looking for help. They are seeking help from well-meaning friends, books, misinformed magazines or social media. According to Marketdata Enterprises in Tampa, FL, "women are the number one target for the self-help industry," whereas "men are less likely to buy into self help." With this being the case, according to sales data in 2007 "there were 13 million relationship self-help books sold" (Marketdata Enterprises; May 2017).
