Fifty Percent of Marriages End in Divorce
At a time when approximately half of the marriages entered into in the State of New York end in divorce, it is refreshing to hear about successful marriages. The family structure is enhanced by successful marriages. My parents are in their late 80’s and they have been married 65 years. Bravo for them!
