Divorce statistics are higher than ever. 67 percent of first marriages will end in divorce within 40 years and half of those will occur within the first 7 years. The divorce rate is even higher for second marriages, so it makes sense for couples to put forth the effort into making their marriage work. But how can you ensure your marriage will go the distance? Throughout Dr. Gottman's Love Lab, Gottman revolutionized the study of marriage by using scientific procedures and observing the habits of married couples in detail over several years. His research methods revealed the key to happy marriages as well as the detriments that lead to divorce. The seven principles outline the path to success as well as tips for effective communication and agreeable compromise.
