What Mums want (& Dads need to know) 11 MarCome and meet Harry Benson, author of the ground breaking book 'Let's stick together' and father of six.
Harry and Kate Benson began their own married life with great expectations. But within a few years, they stood on the brink of divorce. Today, their marriage is stronger than ever and they have helped many other struggling couples.
‘Growing apart’ has now officially overtaken infidelity as the main cause of family breakdown in Britain, and the tragedy is that it is often utterly avoidable. Growing apart can happen without couples even realising it is happening until it is too late.
Harry, now research director for Marriage Foundation, has spent the past 20 years teaching thousands of couples how to have a happy marriage. Here is the chance to hear what he has to say.
“Yet there is hope. Bad situations can improve. Children grow up and become easier to manage. People change their attitudes. I’ve learned this through first-hand experience when our relationship reached a crisis point. It happened eight years into our marriage when Kate told me she was profoundly unhappy. Intent is the over-riding factor: if we want to stick together — for better, for worse, in sickness and in health - then we will.”
