Four Negative Patterns That Predict Divorce

Posted on April 19, 2012


Dr. John Gottman is one of the leading researchers on relationship dynamics. Here’s a link that has video of him discussing the “four horsemen of the apocalypse,” those aspects evident in the way couples fight that are so damaging to the relationship that they have been observed to be precursors to divorce. Have a look.

The good news is that even if these patterns are evident in your marriage, you don’t have to continue in these patterns.  Partners can learn to avoid negative patterns in their relationship and combat negative cycles together.
