For a few years, your Facebook feed was probably nothing but an endless scroll of elaborate wedding ceremony photos and honeymoon pictures. But now, it looks like every other person is selling off a fine china set or returning to her maiden name. Divorce happens, and it's probably affected you, your family, or close friends. If it makes you antsy about your own marriage, then it's a good idea to be mindful of the common habits that you don't realize increase your chances of divorce. Sure, something like a one-time incident of adultery can end a marriage abruptly, but there are also a ton of little behaviors that can erode your marriage's foundation over time.
This is not to say that divorce is always a bad thing. If you're in a relationship that's abusive, then leaving is definitely the right call. And, on a less dramatic note, you probably know couples who have split amicably because it was the best decision for them. Sometimes breaking up is simply the best course of action.
That said, it's perfectly normal and healthy for married people to wonder about their relationship's ability to go the distance. By making some simple changes, such as cutting back on your Facebook time or quitting smoking, you just might help your marriage last longer.
