What is the cause of the conflicts that are causing so much unhappiness in marriages and creating toxic relationships? Why do men and women cheat on their partners? The answer should be obvious: On the whole, people don’t understand the cause of the conflicts in their marriages and how to deal with the conflict, or why they are unfaithful to their partners. If they did, they wouldn’t continue to get divorced at such horrifying rates. They wouldn’t continue to inflict such awful pain on themselves, their partners, and their children, and they wouldn’t continue to feel so desperately confused and alone.
Nearly 60% of marriages in the United States end in divorce, and of the marriages that survive more than 50% say they would split up if it weren’t for issues like money or children. Moreover, these numbers don’t reflect the fact that, increasingly, couples are choosing simply not to get married at all. They don't understand how to save a marriage and avoid divorce.
