Summary

Summary

Everyone sets out to succeed in marriage, but there are numerous fault lines, any one of which could lead to the break-up of the marriage. Which of these fault lines are the fatal ones? How much time does one have to correct a flaw? Can we know, at the outset, which relationships have little chance of surviving in the long-term?
