Reconcilable Differences: Marriages end. Families don’t by Cate Cochran

An excerpt from Cate Cochran’s book, Reconcilable Differences: Marriages end. Families don’t (Second Story Press), was recently featured in the Globe and Mail’s Life section. This week’s Maclean’s magazine also includes an article about Cate and Reconcilable Differences. Her new book is a model for reconfiguring a family after divorce, and it’s a first of its kind. Separation and divorce can be a grueling and cruel experience. Few public models and fewer resources exist for retooling a family. Cate has interviewed rearranged families from across Canada and tells the stories of ten “successfully failed” marriages in her groundbreaking book.

Cate 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. Born in Toronto, she has lived in Saint John, Montreal and Ottawa, where she attended Carleton University. Cate was the art director for Canadian Living Magazine before becoming a writer, radio producer and award-winning documentary maker.
