- At Home
While a failed marriage is often the result of poor communication between partners, marriage experts say that you can save a marriage in trouble. Although every married couple experiences difficulties in their relationship at some time, it is possible to strengthen and rebuild a relationship. A study published by the Institute of American Values found that most of the couples in the research sample who divorced reported being no happier following the divorce. Yet nearly two-thirds of the unhappy couples who stayed in their marriages reported having happy marriages 5 years later.
