The Epic Novel, “Avoiding divorce for Black Men: 101, is the first of many in a series of self- help materials for men, to reference in an effort to avoid divorce. The platform was inspired by God, and developed by Michael C. LeMay. “Avoiding Divorce for Men: 101, and coinciding publications are targeted primarily towards African American men. To be used in conjunction with professional marriage and relationship counseling methodologies and strategies. 

However, the avoiding divorce platform is an organic multi-media resource that offers assistance to anyone who desires to learn techniques for how to save their marriage from divorce. The materials deliver vital information and practical guidance to African American men in particular, for how to prevent their marriage from falling apart.

The content for the avoiding divorce platform is largely derived from our own personal experiences, dialogue with various contributor’s advisers and counselors, and also from God’s inspiration. We hope to bring awareness to the public about some of the pitfalls, root causes and the results of divorce that a family endures as a result of divorce. And we hope to provide information and guidance to avoid divorce. We believe that the avoiding divorce platform is as significant as and will be as reforming, as the civil rights movement. 

Avoiding Divorce: 101. For Black Men.

This book will give him insight on the discussions that women have with each other about what is lacking in our marriages and dating life especially in this day and age.

    I enjoyed reading this book! Even though the title implies for Black Men, it is not just for men alone. The spotlight is put on the high rate of divorce in the black community, the negative generational effects caused when a marriage is dissolved so quickly; in most cases without adequate council, and the advantages of maintaining the African American family as a unit. The author and co-authors words are succinct and to the point! Each module takes you on a journey and illustrates step by step the affects of divorce, and the economic impact. It also highlights and defines the importance of the women’s role in a marriage (which I could definitely relate to), and the long term effects in maintaining a strong family relationship. A very powerful read!

    As a woman reading this I felt like the proverbial fly on the wall. Michael Le May goes after the roots of the cancer of divorce. I found it both heartbreaking and inspirational. With every word the author reveals his love for the Black family, and his genuine desire to help others avoid the pain he has experienced. His male point of view is a must read for young Black men. Mr. LeMay gives you the plain talk that so many men need. Avoiding Divorce 101 is a fatherly explanation of what to do when you find your wife. LeMay like a father or brother tells you how to lead your family away from the pitfalls of relationships and divorce.
