If you think your relationships with your parents can’t affect your marriage, think again.

As a young adult, I was highly aware that my parents’ relationship and subsequent divorce would have an impact on my future. In my early 20s I wasn’t even sure I ever wanted to get married. The negative and painful struggle I witnessed during my parents’ separation was something I was determined not to repeat.

After my Social Work education and my own therapy, I understood what it took to create a healthy marriage. I set out to find a partner who had the same goals. That’s when I met Bob, and here we are 30 years later.

Were your parents:

  • Emotionally expressive?
  • Attentive or inattentive?
  • Together or separated?
