Video Summary: A high rate of divorce and break-ups is a fact of our society. It's not surprising, given the casual approach our society takes to finding and building long-term relationships. In case you haven't figured it out yet, chance is not on your side when seeking a mate or discerning how to make that relationship a healthy one. So what should you be learning to better navigate these treacherous waters?
Some basic realities of human relationships is a fine place to start. These truths work on the playground as well in the bedroom. Give up any misguided notions you may harbor in these areas: you can't control another person, period -- in any way. The only person you can control is you. The best thing for you to change is your attitude.
Then some hints for building better intimate relationships: don't operate from sexual scarcity. Get your financial life in order. Get as healthy and fit as you can be. Work on fixing you -- if you're always the one left behind, figure out why and work on that.
These are hard truths, that many people will discount, as they travel the road from disastrous relationship to disastrous relationship. Ignore them at your peril.
