Current estimates suggest that 40-45% of marriages are at risk for future divorce. Separation and divorce often have negative effects on the mental and physical health of both spouses, which can impact several areas of their lives including their careers.


Psychologist Dr. John Gottman has conducted research on the predictors of divorce for several decades, and has uncovered a way to predict whether or not a couple will divorce with over 90% accuracy, based simply on observing a 15-minute conversation between the couple. This unique Info-Tech research note includes:


  • A description of the communication patterns that most strongly predict marital stability vs. divorce.
