Are there problems in your marriage? Welcome to the club!
No marriage can escape obstacles, but just as in dealing with life it is all about how you handle those
obstacles that determines whether your marriage has a shot at making it long term or if divorce will be in your
Marriage takes not only hard work but also a willingness to want to do that work.
In knowing that all marriages, at one time or another have issues and that many of those issues are the same
marriage to marriage makes it easier to look at them and discuss them openly.
By knowing what the typical marital problems that often cause divorce are
you can be aware and on the lookout for them, because if you can spot them early on, you can open the lines of
communication and deal with them. However if you wait and let it build walls and resentment there will come a point
when nothing can help and divorce will be inevitable.
