#98: The Truth About Marriage & Relationships in 2022
If you're struggling in your relationship, you're not alone. A study done in 2022 showed that satisfaction in marriages and relationships are at an all-time low. In fact, over 50% of marriages end in divorce, and according to a study by Stanford, relationships under five years old are more likely to fall apart than stay together. But why is this? What's changed?
Some experts believe that the rise of social media is to blame. With platforms like Facebook and Instagram, it's easy to compare our relationships to the "perfect" relationships we see online. We compare our real lives to the highlight reel of someone else's life, and it's easy to feel like we're falling short. Other experts believe that the problem is that we're simply too busy these days. With work and family commitments, it's hard to find time for our partner. We're exhausted by the time we get home, and we don't have the energy to invest in our relationship.
Lastly, with the rise of online dating, there's more competition than ever before. It's easier than ever to meet new people, which can make us take our current relationship for granted. We start to compare our partners to others we see online and in magazines, which is unfair and unrealistic. As a result, we may start to look for someone "better" even though we have a perfect partner right in front of us.
If you're struggling in your relationship, you're not alone. Changes in society have led to strained relationships. However, there is hope! If you're willing to work on your relationship, there's a good chance you can turn things around. Talk to your partner about your concerns and see if you can work together to improve your relationship. Don't give up hope - things can get better!
