We all know the statistics: marriage rates are down, divorce rates are up, and over time people become more dissatisfied in their relationships. The appetite for advice is insatiable, resulting in magazine covers touting tip-after-tip from experts on how to find the perfect mate, how to tell if it’s going south, and how to fix the one that’s broken. Never in history have we expected so much from romantic partners and experienced such little happiness.
Roger Nygard attended countless weddings and found himself asking: Why do people keep getting married when fifty percent break up? What makes them think they will beat the odds? And if they do, what exactly are the secrets to making it work?
Nygard tracked down the experts — and some other extraordinary folks — to solve the mystery of happy relationships. Along the way he discovered scientific facts about how we truly find each other to begin with, what we can do to increase the chances of finding our soulmate, and how most of what we call fate is anything but.
In today’s YouTube video, we interview Roger Nygard on his new documentary. If you’d like to listen on the audio only, the episode is also available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
