Divorce is an event that should be avoided at all costs. Divorce can only be avoided if you are aware of the characteristics, values and flaws of your partner before starting to live together. A precursor to living together should be dating that refers to frequent conversations on all topics from nutrition, clothing, finances, health, preferences, perceptions of values and flaws. Today, most partners want to establish a quick relationship and engage in sexual intercourse very soon after dating. Such an attitude destroys a long-lasting and quality relationship, because a passionate sexual relationship can initially show a very shallow relationship between partners later on. This shallow relationship is further complicated when it comes to pregnancy, which in many cases ends in marriage. That marriage was probably doomed quickly because of the initial shallow relationship. A relationship in which there is only passion can suit many for a short time. If a person is looking for a long-term, deep relationship, that relationship must be based primarily on love, understanding, and support.
