Marriage: Forever & Ever?
Despite the recent high-profile breakups of prominent political couples, American marriages are showing strong numbers these days. Our divorce rates are leveling off and new census statistics show that our marriages are lasting longer. On Tuesday's HearSay, we'll examine these new, and some would say surprising, trends in American marriages. We'll also talk about the struggles facing long-term marriages today and why some fail, while others survive.
