How To Destroy a Marriage

In response to¬†Dr Rob Dobrenski’s article on why marriages fail (linked previously), The Last Psychiatrist¬†looks at various “post-marriage accelerators of divorce”‚ÄĒthings you can do today to destroy your marriage (limited time offer):

  • Be¬†contemptuous
  • Bring your work home (emotionally)
  • Rush through your ‘family life’ in order to spend time with yourself
  • Be painfully honest with friends/colleagues about your relationship
  • Communicate through your kids
  • Refill hedonistic supplies (“look elsewhere for affirmation of identity”)

TLP¬†compiled this list because he felt that Dr Dobrenski’s article focused more on “reasons [that] are generally of the type ‘unrealistic expectations’ or at least ‘the wrong impression.’ ¬† In other words, the marriages failed not because of what went on in the marriage, but because people were oriented wrong¬†before¬†they even got married.”
