Join us for next week’s podcast when we chat about travel nightmares, our top celebrity encounters, and dealing with a bad workplace hire.

Why do some marriages fail? In this week's Forever 39, we talk about about the issues we've dealt with in our relationships and the remedies that have helped give our unions the kick in the butt they needed!

And while there are many reasons for why marriages fail, most experts agree that lack of communication is one of the biggest problems. Other reasons, according to a Huffington Post article, include:

  • Lack of commitment
  • Lack of care
  • Lack of intimacy

So what's the key to a good marriage? The American Psychological Association lists a series of tasks that research shows couples in good marriages have engaged in. You can check them out here.

And we've also got tips from a divorce attorney on ways to avoid the big "D." You can check out those tips here.
