Every Reason to Leave

Fifty percent of all marriages, both Christian and non-Christian, end in divorce. More than half of divorces are filed by women due to unfulfilled marital expectations and a lack of guidance. "Why bother to stay married?" they ask. The answer to this question, asked by many couples, is addressed in detail through this compelling, personal, and detailed story of one couple's marital journey. Vicki Rose shares her life story as an example of what GOD can and will do to restore a broken and seemingly irreparable relationship. Vicki and her husband Bill, part owner of the New York Yankees, were separated for 5 ½ years. Both Jewish, they each came to know Jesus Christ during their separation. They reconciled and now have a Christ-centered, strong, and healthy marriage.

If you are wondering if it is worth the effort to stay married and have thought about divorce, this book is for you.

What People Are Saying:

I have never read a more compelling account of the power of God to change lives and restore marriages.  In her book, Every Reason to Leave (& Why We Chose to Stay Together), Vicki Rose shares her journey with integrity – the good, the bad, the horrible, the separation, the discovery, the restoration, the work, and the deep satisfaction.  Walking this road with Billy and Vicki Rose has the potential of changing your life forever.  I wish every couple, married, or divorced, could read this book.

Gary Chapman Ph.D., bestselling author of The Five Love Languages

Vicki Rose is a trophy of God’s grace, as is her marriage to Bill Rose. Her story is a powerful testimony of God’s ability to redeem the most hopeless situation. In a day when so many marriages are not making it to the finish line, this is a story that needs to be heard. I believe Vicki’s "life message" will be a healing balm to many women in difficult marriages and will give them the courage and faith to wait on the Lord and remain faithful to Him and His calling, rather than throwing in the towel on their marriage. Above all, I trust it will stir up in every wife a desire for her marriage to better reflect the amazing redemptive story of Christ and His bride.

Searching for happiness and wholeness, Vicki Rose chased after those high society offerings that she envisioned would bring her significance and satisfaction. However, in chasing her dreams, her life turned more and more into a nightmare. The career-climbing, celebrity-connecting, and cocaine-consuming lifestyle did not fulfill her as expected. Her story in Every Reason to Leave describes setbacks and disappointments, especially in her early years of marriage to Billy Rose, partial owner of the New York Yankees. In her search to make sense of her world, Vicki – and Billy - make a discovery - a discovery many of us have made, or should. As I read this book, I could not put it down, nor will you.  Trust me, you have every reason to read, Every Reason to Leave, especially if you are in a crisis in your marriage and/or in your faith. Don’t leave either, and Vicki will give you the reason.

This book is the blood, sweat and tears of a woman who has had the courage to stay married when her marriage was not a "Fairy Tale." Vicki has written about principles that she has not only learned but also has lived.Her story is a miracle that will challenge any twenty-first century wife who would consider staying married in the midst of difficult, shattering, non-fairy tale circumstances.

Staying married, growing old together, loving and caring for one another as we age and decline – this is but one area Vicki Rose touches on in her book; EVERY REASON TO LEAVE.   The joy of a 37-plusyear marriage relationship that has persevered through drug addiction, infidelity and 5 ½ years of separation to victory through a relationship with Jesus Christ is the subject of this testimonial work.  This is a “must read” for anyone contemplating divorce!

Marriage is tricky business and how you handle the trickiness might just make or break the rest of your life. My friends Bill and Vicki have navigated their way through the challenges proving that anyone who surrenders to the will and ways of Jesus can enjoy the mutual intimacy of a deep and abiding love. I have watched their relationship…it is the real deal. Thanks Bill and Vicki for this compelling story! Many will find hope in their journey toward a fulfilling marriage because you have shared your struggles and victories with such transparency and power.
