“I was not against marriage. I believed in it, in fact. It was necessary to have one best friend in a hostile world…yet what about all those other longings which after a while, marriage did nothing much to appease?” – “FEAR OF FLYING,” Erica Jong. Once again Brad Coates (www.CoatesandFrey.com) joined the program. He is a man who knows much about marriage and divorce, the author of “DIVORCE with DECENCY” – Fourth Edition. This book has some fascinating statistics – including that we’re in a marriage slump. Fewer Americans are married today, largely because fewer young people are tying the knot. And, from Brad’s book: “There has been more than a 30% drop in the marriage rate since 1970…Thirty-six percent of women surveyed said they would not marry their same husbands again, whereas only 12 percent of married men admitted they had picked the wrong wife…Forty percent of all couples are estimated to be simply coexisting in unhappy marriages.” Women in Brad’s office complain about a lack of communication, and men often have a women in the wings (an affair). Yes, there is the sex part. The Canadian researchers who analyzed data from three different studies found that sex played an even bigger role than money in happiness. Tune in to discover the details!
