According to a Forbes survey of divorced couples and those going though a divorce, there was one thing above all others that they say could have saved their marriage. 63% of those surveyed said the number-one thing was “a better understanding of the commitment of marriage prior to marrying.”

"There are myths in our culture that teach us that if you find the right person, it's smooth sailing," she says. "You never have to course correct, and that is not true."

Other things that could have saved their marriage:

2. A better understanding of the values and morals of their partner prior to marrying

3. Waiting longer to start a family 

4. Seeking professional help from a therapist or couples counselor

5. Waiting longer to get married
