My parents are divorced, which makes me think that I might be heading towards the same route

Question

My fiancé and I are set to get married next year, however this year alone, two of  my friends got divorced. My parents are also divorced, which makes me think that  I might be heading towards the same route.

I’m scared I will end up like them.

BRA MO ANSWERS

Unfortunately, we are constantly told about the many failed marriages in the world and recent divorce statistics continue to soar.

This is because bad stories travel faster than good ones. How many times have you heard of an elderly couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary? Not often enough.

There are a lot of reasons why couples divorce, but there are also a lot of reasons why many are still married. You and your partner should do all you can to safeguard your marriage, however do not be afraid of change.

Sometimes it is necessary and good.

Speak to a marriage counsellor before saying “I do” in order to learn valuable skills on what it takes to make a relationship work, to use later in life.

I wish you all the best.
