Good News for Unhappy Marriages

with Ron Deal | July 24, 2020

That's not right. It's based on the belief that half of marriages end in divorce which isn't true. Actually, most couples report they are "somewhat to very happy." But what if you're not happy? Let me encourage you to stick it out. Research clearly shows that couples who stay together during a time of distress report years later being very happy they did. And stepfamily couples who stay married at least five years discover many rewards just because they didn't quit. Don't give up!
