Two of the most robust predictors of failed marriage

Two of the most robust predictors of failed marriage

I almost passed on this phone interview because it isn’t the kind of press that usually contacts me. But I was very impressed Lemuel Monterro was writing about divorce in a regional wedding magazine. So much romanticized aesthetic and ceremonial work goes into a wedding, supporting an entire industry. Often neglected is a financial investment in the nuts and bolts health of the relationship. Two basic factors are highlighted here: sustaining emotional connection and managing conflict. These are two of the most robust predictors of failed marriage. How courageous to include this in a wedding industry publication. I’m glad to have contributed and like to think some young couple may have read a book or sought premarital counseling as an investment in their life together.
