The stereotypical divorcing couple is one that is constantly bickering and fighting. After years of growing apart, it becomes obvious their marriage is broken and the only option for them is to break up.
However, Brigham Young University Professor Spencer James has analyzed couples in both the United States and United Kingdom and discovered that is not necessarily the norm when couples split. In fact, many couples elect to leave relationships that were relatively happy and contained very little conflict.
So the obvious question is why are so many happy couples divorcing?
James joins DadsDivorce Live to discuss his research and speculates as to why so many people leave marriages that on the surface seem perfectly fine.
