The Xanthippe Factor: About the author


Dr. Sara Breslerman is a family and couples Therapist with many years of experience in research and therapy. She is married, the mother of three, and resides in Haifa, Israel.

The Xanthippe Factor is based on her professional experience,  after hearing, again and again, the same arguments by women and the same claims of men.

In the book she examines a common phenomenon, whereby women change after marriage and especially after the birth of children.

Dr. Breslerman argues that the explanation for this phenomenon is that marriage today has remained almost the same as it was in the times of Socrates and his wife Xanthippe. Therefore, marriage is not suitable for the changes that have taken place in recent decades, mainly the work of women outside the home.


​In The Xanthippe Factor, Dr. Breslerman gives the readers an opportunity to face challenges in their marriage, and find a way to navigate the pitfalls of long-term relationships.

Sara Breslerman (Ph.D. from the University of Haifa), won recognition as a result of her extensive research on the problematic relationship between mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law.
