Experts Say More Married People Are Unhappy Than Ever Before

Despite the recent news that "50 percent of marriages end in divorce" is a total myth, odds are not looking good for wedded bliss these days. The rate in which married couples are admittedly happy has decreased by 5% in only two years, and is suspected to keep plummeting. According to sex and relationship expert Chris Donaghue, Ph.D., longer lifespans are one of the root causes of lessened marital happiness. "Now, people are expecting marriages and sex to last for decades because of the longevity medicine and technology afford, and we're starting to realize it may not be possible for two people to form aligned, congruent lives for 50 years." Chris explains. A lot of married couples are not communicating with their spouses about problems they are having, and are letting the problems tear them apart. Sexlessness is one of the biggest problems occurring in modern marriages, but it is the least talked about. Technology has also played a role in pulling couples apart. The internet has allowed quicker, easier access to porn, chatrooms and online dating. The temptation to cheat is now only a click away. For those couples who are about to take the nuptial plunge, how do you prevent such unhappiness from springing up? Experts say maintaining open dialogue is one of the most powerful tools to working through marital problems. Also, you should remind yourself and your spouse why you love them and how much you appreciate them frequently. This helps keep your bond strong and resilient.
