What to Expect This Episode:

When you look at the data on divorce and see the years of a marriage when divorces are likely to take place, a fascinating picture comes into focus.

First of all, we take data with a grain of salt.

Every marriage is different. Random events pop up. Love, commitment and understanding aren’t events written on a calendar like a dentist appointment.

They are the foundations of a relationship and the shakier they are, the higher the risk of divorce. Divorce risk according to the length of time you’re married ebbs and flows. There are safe years and hard years. There are times when the hope things will get better is stronger than the feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment. What stands out is how tough the early years are.

The adjustments that are so essential to a marriage can be impossible for some people to make.

No wonder so many marriages crash and burn so quickly. 10% of marriages fail in the first two years. It’s heartbreaking. It’s also a vivid reminder of how important it is to apply the lessons of a first failed marriage to make a second marriage a success. If you marry later in life, does this mean you’ve got a better chance of making it through these first two years?

We’ll take a look at this in our podcast.

Let’s spend a few minutes together to see how the risks of divorce rise and fall over the course of a marriage. Even if this doesn’t directly apply to your situation, knowing about these risks gives you helpful insights.​

xoxo Kierstyn and Tiffany


Listener Favorite Moments:

[1:18-3:12] Bonus Tip - We all continue to grow and evolve.

[8:21-9:21]- The first year of marriage is a high risk for divorce…easy to just part ways. Things aren’t too complicated, finding out more about the person, self-sabotage.

[12:55-17:35]- Kierstyn shares personal experience with her marriage in the 5-8 year range. Personal growth as individuals, rubber-band and effect, 7 year itch etc... [18:38-19:58]- Marriage in 30's is up, and divorcing in 50’s which is pretty common. Greater risk of cheating in 50’s according to statistics

[21:55-23:15]-“50% of marriages end in divorce” caveat. Focus on individual marriage instead of relying solely on data
