More bad news for marriage, especially for service members.  There has been increase of over 3 percent year-over-year in Military divorces and that’s just taking into account active duty persons.  The AP gives a detailed report.   It’s interesting to find that women are more effected. 

“Women in the military usually suffer higher rates of failed marriages than men and that trend held true again last year. Army women divorced at a rate of 8.5 percent compared to 2.9 percent for men. Female Marines divorced at a rate of 9.2 percent, compared to 3.3 percent of the married men.”

CNN Fortune Video on Marriage

15 08 2008

CNN’s Fortune has a straight forward discussion from one of Google’s execs on balancing marriage and life in big business.   CLICK HERE TO VIEW the video.   It’s a good watch.  I would love to hear some discussion on this one if anyone has any thoughts…

For me, it’s honest and detailed.   Very good advice from a talented woman that applies to both sexes.
