I learned many things: modern dating is complicated, relationships of all types are fluid and my ex had fingered half of Archway. Discovering that you and a close friend have had a dalliance with the same person is a situation strewn with emotional potholes. When I first started dating, I felt possessive towards my conquests.

Though it may sound irreverent, this premise is actually the basis for an essential journey to self-knowledge and reconciliation. As Dr. Newman shows, this journey has been denied to women for centuries because of church traditions and doctrines going back to the Old Testament and to the teachings of Saint Paul.
