According to 2014 statistics from the CDC, in America there is one divorce approximately every 36 seconds. And much of the most reliable research tells us that almost every single issue in relationships — whether it’s finances, intimacy, or even infidelity — finds its root in poor communication. In fact, poor communication is the #1 reason divorced couples cite for breaking up, and that’s truly a shame, because it’s not that difficult a skill a master.
