Gregmal Posted November 11, 2018 Share Posted November 11, 2018 https://www.yahoo.com/news/michelle-obama-says-she-barack-161343521.html I'm sure you thought you knew what this thread was going to be about by the title and the poster. But no.... What struck me reading this was two things. Politics aside, I think the Obamas are to be admired for their family values and openness about their relation. The second thing is, you see how people work at their relationships. The Obamas probably had it harder than 99% of people in the world and yet have proven through dedication and a little effort, to make their relationship work. So WTF is wrong with the country that divorce rates keep skyrocketing and people can't seem to get it together? One of the most common causes I see with investors when it comes to the cause of financial hardships is getting through a mid life divorce. It's worse than seeing your portfolio take a 50% draw down because it's never coming back. This also typically has hugely negative effects on the children that they then carry and are influenced by. I do think divorce is a major social problem. It's just less obvious and seems to plague people of all backgrounds and political affiliations.
