Separation and divorce can be gruelling and cruel. Spouses who once loved one another can be swept up in an adversarial system where they forget all that was good between them, and the needs of the children often get lost in the shuffle. In her groundbreaking book, "Reconcilable Differences", Cate Cochran tells the stories of ten "successfully failed" marriages and the new families that emerged.
Cate Cochran is a producer with CBC Radio's The Sunday Edition and lives in downtown Toronto, where she shares a house with her ex-husband, two teenage children and a dog.
