“When someone begins on that arrangement called marriage, he is getting into something which is, to say the least, adventurous. When a couple get married, they are doing something they know nothing about. And, from all indications, when they have tried it more than once, they know no more about it the second time than they did the first.” —L. Ron Hubbard, “What is Marriage?” from the Scientology Handbook.

Some people have a great relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend and then get married and believe that everything is going to work out perfectly without any effort to keep the marriage together. This idea is folly. If you stop creating a marriage, it ceases to exist. The legal documents do not keep a marriage together, as evidenced by the huge number of marriages which the documents did not keep together:
Divorce rate according to www.DivorceRate.org:
“The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%”
The best way to keep a marriage together is to learn how a marriage functions and always repair the upsets with your maritial partner. Never go to sleep with an upset between you and your spouse. In fact, that is one of the promises you make in the Scientology wedding ceremony:
“I should like to see you make a pact between you
that you will never close your eyes in sleep on a broken triangle [The ARC Triangle].
Heal any breach with the reality of your love through communication.
If you will do this, these emblems [The rings] of your greatest desire
in present time will remain a reality throughout your future…”
One of the best ways to learn how to accomplish this is to take the Free Scientology Course on Marriage. This course has assisted countless couples, Scientologist and not Scientologist, to keep their marriages together or restore long-lost love within their marriages.
