Post-nuptial Depression


Research based on studies of married couples in California has found around 10 per cent of newly-married women are seeking professional help for reassurance about what they should expect after the excitement of their big day wears off. According to The Telegraph Dr Michelle Gannon, a psychologist, found the newly-wed women struggling to deal with the inevitable rows.

Perhaps in times of personal freedoms young people need to be educated about the realities of relationships and learn how to negotiate to counter the glossy image of marriage portrayed in the media.

..... to negotiate to counter the glossy image of marriage portrayed in the media



LOL thats surly dependant on your personal view of marriage rather than the media image. It can be happily off into the sunset, I know real life cases.

I was thinking of American TV programmes, films and magazines which treat marriage (and relationships) superficially and for some young people are the sole source of information.
