The true divorce rate is always being debated, but the fact is simple: more and more couples are seeking ways to divorce-proof their marriages. Whether you're a newlywed or have been married for a few years, you may have already experienced a few bumps in the road. About 50 percent or more singles I've worked with are divorced or separated and have shared with me all the reasons things didn't work out. Although each person has their own story and experience to share, it's clear there exists some common problems. In hindsight, the inevitable breakdown could have been avoided if the problems were addressed early and actions were taken before it became too late to save the relationship.
