"What Binds Marriage" by Fr Tim Buckley CSsR. This book was first published in1997 based on research commissioned by the England/Wales hierarchy and a second revised and expanded  edition is still available from several suppliers on the i nternet. Just Google "What Binds Marriage". In the links that come up you will see some well deserved praise for thei wonderful book.

At the ASDC National Committee meeting held on 11 October 2008 the library then held by the Association was reviewed, old and outdated books were removed from the library and the books listed above were retained. The books listed have been read by at least one of former members of the ASDC and may be  still relevant to separated and divorced catholics nowadays.


Not all the books may be relevant to the stage you are at. You may wish to re-read some of them at a later stage.


Another booklet not held in the ASDC Library is "Heartfelt Prayers for the separated and divorced." I heard in 2015 that it was likely to be published but I have not had confirmation that this has happened yet.
