Globally marriages have a 50% failure rate by year 7, 2ndmarriages have a 70% failure rate. People do not learn the skills they need to be successful at marriage and therefore marriage is our least successful adult relationship and also are most costly to our health, our financial well-being and the child it produces when it doesn’t go well.
