‘Unmasking the Married Single Mom (MSM)’

Maggie Dulcio discusses issues women face surrounding uninvolved husbands

TAMPA, Fla. – “Unmasking the Married Single Mom (MSM): Insights Into the Grind of Devoted Moms” (published by Lulu) by Maggie Dulcio presents concepts centered around the necessary elements needed to maintain a healthy relationship and marriage. Also included are effective communication strategies and conflict resolutions skills.

The book addresses the common stress that many married women experience, namely feeling like they have to do it all by themselves because they are married to an uninvolved husband. Speaking to this issue, Dulcio explores roles and responsibilities in the home and the impact of uninvolved husbands. The author offers practical advice for surviving the MSM phenomenon using fictitious characters with the vignettes.

Dulcio shares that she hopes her book helps readers learn: “Women play a special role in our society and in the home. They can be strong, independent and industrious, however, they will perform at their maximum potential when they have a partner who is supportive and engaged.”
