Healthy relationships require realistic evaluation. Whether you’re evaluating a relationship with a significant other, a family member, a friendship or a professional connection, Judge Mablean’s new book Look Deep Before You Leap will increase your awareness of red flags. It will challenge you to face the flags you have chosen to ignore.

In these pages are sixty scenarios culled from the judge’s decades of experience advising clients and families. She gives the reader the gift of her extensive training as a lawyer, mediator and television judge coupled with her personal life experiences.

After reading this book, you’ll have the information you need to make a practical choice, one that could save you from the unnecessary hardships of divorce, or the pains, disappointment, aggravation, and bitterness of staying in a relationship long past its due date.
