Mass migration is occurring throughout the US as workers attempt to find work due to the current economic downturn. As these workers travel - often with their families in-tow - they can experience many financial hardships. Unfortunately, the stress of these financial difficulties can often lead to parents, and thus families, splitting up.
A study performed by Michigan State University found a widening mortality gap between married and unmarried people. The information in the MSU study bodes well for those in marriages, but unfortunately, not all marriages last - with many ending in divorce.
The economy remains at a virtual standstill and home prices continues to drop in Michigan. Moreover, more couples are discovering during these dire economic times that they cannot even afford to divorce. Consequently, as many couples have tried to stay together, one business that has heated up during the recession is the on-line affair business.
It is unquestionable that some form of fighting exists in every marriage - so the question becomes why do some marriages survive the fighting and some do not. According to University of Michigan researcher, the answer is not if your fight but how you fight that impacts the longevity of a marriage and possible divorce.
