The Four Indicators of Divorce Within Ten Years

Travis Bradberry, author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 cites a study that claims to predict with 90% accuracy whether a couple will divorce within ten years.

The indicators are all around how a couple handles conflict, and can be determined in a ten minute observation of the couple in a fight.  The indicators are:

  1. Criticism
  2. Stonewalling
  3. Defensiveness
  4. Contempt

Being a success in your work and failing in your key relationships is not a win.  Evaluate your relationship and see how you can handle conflict more effectively.
