Why Your Parents' Divorce Doesn't Predict Your Future
Discover the 3 very unpredictable factors that will predict whether you are destined for divorce.

3. Whether you have worked on yourself
It’s important to work on yourself and take responsibility for half of the dynamic of any relationship whether it is over or not. As the old adage says – “It takes two to Tango”, which is true. A relationship dynamic is just like a dance. There is a push and pull and if you want to change the direction of where you are going, someone will need to take control of where you are heading. Fortunately you have no control over anyone else other than yourself.

Taking responsibility is not about judging or blaming yourself, instead it involves looking at your part and seeing what needs to change, so you can evolve and grow to keep what works and what doesn’t.

In short, your parents’ relationship will have had an impact on you, but it doesn’t mean that it controls your destiny. You control your destiny and that of your relationships, which means you can create whatever destiny you want for yourself.
