Dr. Carol Morgan writes about the 15 most common marriage problems and the best way to handle them.
All the movies we have seen growing up—from Snow White to Titanic—have given our world a glimpse into what real love should look like. Women are looking for their Prince Charming because our world tends to glorify marriage and gloss over marriage problems.
