SURVIVING THE STORMS OR HOW TO STAY MARRIED
96% OF ALL AMERICANS WILL MARRY.
38% OF THESE WILL DIVORCE.
79% OF THOSE WILL REMARRY.
44% OF THOSE WILL DIVORCE AGAIN.
OVER HALF OF ALL DIVORCES IN THE WORLD HAPPEN IN THE USA,
MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
THE RICHEST AND MOST POWERFUL NATION IN THE WORLD...
IS NOT RICH IN LASTING RELATIONSHIPS!
ANY INDUSTRY THAT PRODUCED A 50% FAILURE RATE WOULD GO OUT OF
WRECKED MARRIAGES LEAVE CASUALTIES ALL OVER THE BATTLEFIELD!

MOTHERS TRYING TO WORK AND RAISE CHILDREN.

AND CHILDREN ARE CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE BETWEEN WARRING PARENTS
OFTEN FEELING THEY DID SOMETHING WRONG TO DESERVE SUCH A LIFE!
A 10 YEAR STUDY OF DIVORCED SPOUSES INDICATED THAT ONLY 10% FELT
