458-508 Bill and Pam Farrel, are international speakers, relationship specialists and authors of nearly 30 books including their best-selling Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti. They're practical, personal and pretty humorous too – and, they are the real deal.  Happily married for 30 years, with three kids, one of them a strong-willed A.D.D. athlete who's grown into a great leader, as have his two siblings.  And like the rest of us, they have to juggle family, friendships and fun with making a living.  They've got books, cd's, and videos, along with a bunch of free relationship resources at their website ( 800-810-4449).  We talk about tackling typical transitions in life and love from their book 10 Best Decisions a Couple Can Make.
My Summary Notes:  90% of all couples who live together never make it to the altar, and of the 10% who do, they have a divorce rate twice as high as those that don't.  Statistically, most marriages fail at the 3 year and 20 year marks, with a quarter of all marriages ending before 5 years.  At 3 years, we start really knowing each other.  At 20, the guys start their mid-life re-evaluation, often with challenges to their health, their careers, and "any developmental stage that they missed out on in childhood, they tend to want to experience."  Women too, have an "evaluation" period between the ages of 28 to 38, usually when their youngest child starts school, and right when their husband's career is blossoming.
