It is no secret that the American marriage is in trouble.

  • For every two marriages in the last decade, there was one divorce.
  • The news is awash in tales of public figures and their infidelities.
  • Books, therapies and gurus designed to improve relationships abound.

So why does the problem persist? Why can’t Americans find marital bliss?

I know the answer. The reason the American marriage remains troubled is that individuals have not been properly schooled to spot the losers. As a result, many marriages are quite simply doomed from the start.

How did I come to this realization? I am a divorce attorney. I have helped dismantle more than 3500 marriages over 30 years. Throughout my career, I have seen it all: long-term marriages, short-term marriages, affairs, abuse, addiction, you name it. Divorce is a business of tremendous diversity. But I have also come to see a common thread throughout these sad stories. The majority of divorces that cross my desk have one thing in common: a poor choice of spouse. My client did not see the red flags in his or her relationship, made a dismal choice, and the result was divorce.

It does not have to be this way. It is possible to spot the red flags in a relationship at any stage – even on the first date. 

In this Blog I will give you the benefit of my inside experience and teach you to spot the red flags of a bad relationship.  I hope you will enjoy the many stories I will tell that illustrate the message I seek to pass on.
