All- Star Marriage has one of the highest success of helping couples.
Half of marriages end in divorce. It is a disturbing, inescapable fact. Marriage alone is difficult enough. Throw in a pandemic, finances, kids, in-laws, jobs, and stress, there is a potential recipe for disaster. And we are definitely seeing the consequences: there is a divorce every 13 seconds in the U.S. Those wedding vows you recited? 9 people divorced within those few short seconds or minutes. That wedding reception where you danced with your new spouse, ate a delicious meal, and celebrated with your family and friends? Around 1,385 couples divorced within those few hours.
There are even more significant risk factors that can lead to divorce. In your first year of marriage? You could be one of the 19,353,568 who divorce within that time frame. Between the ages of 25 to 39? You could potentially make up 60 percent of all divorces. Have you and your spouse been married before? If so, you are 90 percent more likely to get divorced. Live in Oklahoma? It is one of the five states with the highest divorce rates, according to the CDC.
These statistics are downright scary and can talk anyone out of getting married. And if you are married, this can cause even more fear and anxiety. So what do you do? How do you prevent becoming another statistic? It’s impossible to avoid the inevitable challenges that life brings: the misunderstandings, the miscommunications, the loss of excitement, the tension, the hurt. Protect your marriage. Do the maintenance. When athletes become injured, tired, and overwhelmed from the demands of their sport, they take time to fix their bodies and their minds. They don’t push themselves to the point where they can’t play anymore.
They recognize when they need a break so that they can keep playing and not end their careers early. They love their sport and don’t want to jeopardize it. When a car gets run down, you take it to the shop to get its oil changed, get new tires, and other new parts so that it can keep running. You don’t take it into the dealership and trade it in for a new car just because it needs an oil change. You do what you can to make it last because it’s an important investment. These same ideas apply to your marriage. You need tools that can prepare you for the hard times ahead and help you heal so you can keep going strong.
All-Star Marriage can give you the tools you need to do just that.
