Valentine's Day: How to Stay Happily Married

"And Now for Something Completely Different" -- to borrow a phrase from Monty Python.

Your read the title right! This is an odd post for a blog with "Divorce" in the name. Today, just in time for Valentine's Day, we are providing something to help you stay happily married, if that is your goal. I'm betting that a number of readers will be interested in this topic. To listen to a podcast or read some helpful tips, click here.

I have run across a web site,, which is an excellent resource for people wanting to work to improve and preserve their marriage. The web site is managed by the Rosen Law Firm in North Carolina. Their main web site deals with Family Law in the context of North Carolina law, but most of what you find on the web site can benefit people anywhere.

The topic of this post may seem out of place in a blog about divorce. Actually, I know that a variety of people read this blog and come from many different situations. Probably most people who find this blog are either already going through a divorce or have decided to get a divorce.

But there may be a substantial number who are interested in preserving their marriage. Things may have not been working out well in the marriage and their spouse may have filed for divorce or the two parties may have been discussing divorce or maybe just one of the parties is considering a divorce, but it's not a foregone conclusion.

For those people, and for most people already in the process of getting divorced, it is common for one or both parties to have second thoughts, doubts about whether they should be following through with a divorce. Other people may be looking around while they are trying marriage counseling as a last-ditch effort to save the marriage. Whatever your situation, listen to the podcast and read some of the articles. It won't hurt to try out some of their suggestions.

Who knows, maybe you'll learn something that will help improve your marriage.
