Marriage & Family


In the United States, as many as 80% of adults get married before they turn forty years old. These relationships are extremely impactful. They can produce love, joy—and for some—hardship, as evidenced by increasing divorce rates. So how can people initiate and sustain meaningful marital relationships? What does a committed, dynamic and engaging marital relationship look like?

Although there may not be a single answer to either of these questions, some research suggests that certain characteristics, such as communication, openness, and maintaining a realistic perspective, may relate to healthy marriages. Applying these characteristics to your relationship can be a significant challenge, but seeking support from a psychologist could greatly help this process. Search our database today!
