Let's not be complacent ...

Don't be fooled by Valentines; it's just one day but marriage is supposed to be for life. 

In case your tempted to think you'll be the exception and don't have to regularly invest in your marriage ...

  • UK divorce rates are highest in those between the ages of 40 to 44, say ONS statistics. 
  • The highest proportion is among those married between five and nine years. 
  • 34% of marriages end in divorce by the 20th wedding anniversary
  • 49% of couples divorcing in 2011 had at least one child aged under 16.
So yes, tell your spouse tomorrow that you love them and DO something that makes them feel its true. But don't let that fool you into thinking you've done your bit to build a marriage that will prevail for a lifetime.
