Dr. Terri Orbuch, a research professor at the University of Michigan and author of “Finding Love Again: 6 Simple Steps to a New and Happy Relationship,” studied marriage for 25 years. Her research started in 1986 as a long-term study supported by the National Institutes of Health. The study followed 373 newlyweds. By 2012, 46% of the couples had divorced. Concluding the study, Dr. Orbuch learned there were five common issues that the divorcees would improve if they had the chance to do it all again:
1. Money. Dr. Orbuch learned that money plays a huge role in marital conflict. “Many divorced singles say that money was the number one source of conflict in the early years of marriage,” she said. She also found that, “6 out of 10 said they would not share living expenses in their next relationship.” She recommends that each partner discuss their own approach to spending and saving early on in the relationship to set financial rules and expectations in the relationship.
