Based on my own marriage and my experience, I don't see divorce as a likely outcome in my family.

My counselor told me nobody thinks it will be them. Close your eyes. You are in a bank. There are about 15 customers in the bank 3 tellers and a manager. A gun man comes in, robs the bank

Ditto, and I am 51. I can certainly understand why she feels the way she does. However, there's a big difference between believing "it can never happen to me" and believing in your marriage when you have every reason to do so.

You must have read some different posts than me because the ones I read did not say that they knew divorce was not going to ever happen to them/their marriage.

DH and I both come from "until death do us part" families.

But I did believe in my marriage and I had every reason to do so.
