We Can Stop Divorce

We Can Stop Divorce
70% of divorced couples cite "money" as the #1 reason, but it doesn't have to be that way.

We get the opportunity to talk to a lot great people across the nation – young and old, rich and poor – and all kinds of folks are telling us, “We’re sick of divorce.”

People are tired of the pain and destruction caused by divorce. It hurts our children through the tension, fighting, and fear. It wounds each individual who married the love of his or her life and now can’t find enough harmony to remain together. It pains us all from one generation to the next.

We found most people feel powerless against this monster ravaging good marriages, right and left. But we believe we do have the power to save our marriages. In fact, we plan to realistically reverse the divorce trend, because we believe we have cracked the code.

Most people agree sex and money are the two biggest challenges of marriage. We personally believe money fights trump arguments about sex because money is daily and, well, sex isn’t. We all make decisions about spending or saving every single day. Most couples divorce because their fights, bickering, and whining about money differences escalate to the point of no return.

Over 70% of divorced couples in America cite “money” as the number one reason they threw in the towel. She wants to save, he wants to spend, she wants to take risks, he worries about the future, and in some cases he or she doesn’t even care.

Most newlyweds think their spouse thinks about money the way they do, but each individual has a unique perspective about money, called their Money Personality.

Those unique perspectives can cause friction, differences of opinion, and ultimately fights about money. It isn’t broken budgets, the drowning in debt, or even disarrayed financial plans that kill marriages. It’s the broken day-to-day communication about money eroding our unions, one marriage at a time, and we’re sick of it too.
