Family law professor, Jeannie Suk Gersen, lays out three ways that thinking about marital decisions through the lens of divorce can help strengthen your relationship from the beginning

“Spouses are bound together by their decisions, in marriage and in divorce. So, a mentor of mine once told me, ‘You should always marry your second husband first!’” says Gersen.

“I am a family-law professor. I have taught students, I’ve been an attorney, I’m a mediator and I’ve also been divorced. And I’m now happily married to my actual second husband.”

Three ideas that I want to put on the table for you to consider:

  • One, sacrifice should be thought of as a fair exchange.
  • Two, there’s no such thing as free childcare.
  • And three, what’s yours probably becomes ours.
