Did you catch the CBS news piece on fewer divorces in America? It claims that the “silver lining” of the recession is that divorce rates are at their lowest rate in 30 years. Couples encounter money problems, begin fighting, more men at home and women the ones going to work all challenge the marriage. But the story focuses on… …how couples can face these challenges for their families and end up even closer, feeling if they “can get through this they can get through just about anything.”
