(NaturalNews) We're talking about marriage today on Mental Health Exposed with world renown marriage experts Dr. Peter Pearson and Dr. Ellyn Bayder of the Couple's Institute. Marriage, or any long-term romantic relationship, is one of the pillars of life. Our reproductive efforts are grounded in such relationships. Emotional health is tied to the stability of long-term relationships. There are even studies that suggest married people live longer.

Published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, a new study found that, compared with married people, people who are widowed are 40 percent more likely to die, people who are divorced or separated are 27 percent more likely to die, and people who have never married were 58 percent more likely to die.

Yet, most people find marriage difficult, a lifelong struggle, and most marriages end in divorce. Moreover, the following recent study revealed what is on the minds of married women.

In a much-discussed recent study of 35,000 American women, published in the July issue of Woman's Day, 72 percent of married women said they had considered leaving their husbands. Seventy-nine percent said they'd like sex more often, and 52 percent said they have no sex life to speak of. When you combine all the tedious tasks the average woman has, usually carrying the bulk of the burden in a modern family, with little sexual fulfillment or emotional intimacy, you have a recipe for divorce.

Why is marriage so challenging?

This is the primary question I put to our guests on this episode. I have never heard a more intelligent, informed and clear response! The reason we inevitably walk into marital challenges brings instant relief once you understand it. Of course, the answer to this question also reveals the path toward resolution of problems and a less conflictual, more fulfilling marriage.

For more than 20 years, Dr. Ellyn Bader and Dr. Peter Pearson have been helping couples resolve issues and create strong, loving relationships. Ellyn and Peter have been featured on over 50 radio shows and on television including The Today Show and CBS Early Morning News. The Bader-Pearson approach is known for its practical applications that help you and your partner create enduring love.

Drs. Bader and Pearson have prepared a special educational video for listeners of Mental Health Exposed

Free of charge, you can go to a special page on their website, mentioned on the show, and watch a video of them resolving a conflict in their own marriage. They will educate, enlighten and entertain you with the challenges they have faced as a couple, and how they overcame them to build a strong marriage.

Ellyn and Peter are the authors of Tell Me No Lies. This book tells you how to face the truth and build a loving marriage. They also wrote In Quest of the Mythical Mate, a textbook for couples therapists that is now in its 16th printing. This book won the Clark Vincent Award from the California Association of Marital & Family Therapists for its outstanding contribution to the field of marital therapy.
