400-408 – Dr. Kevin Downing, co-founder of Turning Point Counseling (, 800-99-TODAY, 800-998-6329), along with his partner Peter Robbins, have trained over 500 professional Christian therapists over the past 28 years, and operate offices on 40 church campuses throughout Southern California, each one providing Christ-centered marriage, family and individual counseling.  Today, in light of the William and Kate's Royal Wedding, that drew an estimated global television audience of 2-billion people, we talk about how to divorce-proof your marriage.  The latest research enables counselors to now predict with 95% accuracy whether a couple will "make it" or not.  It comes down to how the couple deals with conflict – it has nothing to do with socio-economic factors.  There are four conflict styles that best predicts divorce ("the four pipelines of poison):  1) Escalation, 2) Withdrawal, 3) Invalidation-Criticism, 4) Negative Interpretation and Mind Reading.  (Based on the work of Scott Stanley, A Lasting Promise.)
