Do you know of a solid relationship that seemed to have a lot going for it…and yet it unraveled? What about a marriage that stayed together but seemed stagnant…or even hostile? Did you see the Newsweek article No Sex Please, We're Married? If relationship disharmony has never affected your union you are rare; in 2002 the US Census Bureau predicted that half of all new marriages are likely to end in divorce.
Our honeymoons aren't lasting, but when we look at rising divorce statistics we often assume this must be a recent problem. It isn't. It's proverbial that "the honeymoon period lasts less than a year." What has changed is that we can now divorce easily when disharmony strikes, and we do. So an age-old problem, which was once hidden by the fact that couples had to stay together even when things were grim, is now coming to light.
