The Top 10 Causes for Divorce

Alright Colleen,

We’ve already sent our invitations out.” Or how often have you heard someone say, “We’ve just done this huge expense like building a home together. I can’t pull out now even thought this doesn’t feel right.” People feel that they’re obligated to follow through this marital commitment because of the money and time that’s been spent.
