In 2007, researchers from the Max Planck Institute in Germany reported that the dangerous time in marriage should be called the "five-year itch."
Roger Dobson: "Researchers in the US, Russia and Scandinavia investigating the longevity of relationships found that the "honeymoon period" lasts for less than five years, with most divorces likely to happen between five and 10 years into the marriage. If couples get through this patch, then the chances are they'll stay together indefinitely."
Hopefully, couples today, like us back in the early 1970s, will be able to work through the disillusionment and have successful long-lasting marriages.
