I have not read this book:
So I can't comment on it.
However, today I found a list of things, taken from this book, that correlate with divorce:
Your parents are divorced
You are alcoholic
You are mentally ill
You cheat on your spouse
You gamble compulsively
You are violent
You are younger than 25
You have not gone to college (especially the woman)
You have children
You lived with your spouse before marriage
You have different racial backgrounds
You are different ages
You have different religions
You have different ethnic backgrounds
You have different cultural backgrounds
You have different careers
You don’t know your neighbors
You don’t belong to social clubs
You don’t live near your families
You are not religious
The man does not do housework
So, I am intrigued by #9. Does this mean a marriage is more likely to survive if they do not have children?
That one doesn't make sense to me.
And how about #16. How many couples do you know who share the same career??
BTW, I found this on my friend Darlene's son's blog,
who is in grad school to become a marriage and family therapist.
