Exploring Relationship Functioning in Premarital Caucasian and Latino/a Couples: Recognizing and Valuing Cultural Differences
divorce, first marriage, couple dynamics
Recent divorce trends show that 43 percent of first marriages end in separation or divorce (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2002). Furthermore, second marriages fail at a rate of about 60 percent (Gottman, 1994). Based on these figures, it becomes imperative to have a deeper understanding of marital as well as premarital couple dynamics.
