A sensible way to learn something is by accepting guidance from someone who already knows it. When we want to learn how to knit, drive, play the piano, or use karate, we find an expert and take lessons. Need tax help? We talk to a CPA.
Our divorce rate indicates that we are not doing very well staying married. And judging by the length, expense, drama, and trauma of the average divorce, it looks like we, as a nation, aren’t much better at becoming unmarried.
