This is the main reason why people divorce, says Kim Kardashian's lawyer
Laura Wasser has represented Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears and Ariana Grande in their divorce cases.
Celebrity divorces aren't much different from ordinary people's divorces, she says.
"I always say that divorce is the great equalizer," says Wasser. "People experience the same fear and heartache whether they're famous or not."
The most common reason why people break up remains the same, because they don't communicate.
This issue can manifest as, for example, extramarital affairs or unhealthy drinking habits, but the inability to communicate is usually the root of the problem.
Many partners who choose to marry have not gone through long periods of worry
“Because you don't develop the means of communication when things go well, then when things go wrong, you tend not to have the ability or the means to discuss them, she says.
There are a lot of uncomfortable conversations couples have to have before marriage, she says.
Is it important to send our children to private school? Do you mind my parents living with us when they are older?
These conversations aren't fun, but they can save you money and hassle down the road.
People's needs can also change over the course of a marriage, and good communication is always key.
If your partner doesn't know how you feel, it's inevitable that he won't meet your needs and you'll be unhappy.
By having important conversations before or early in your marriage, you can cultivate healthy communication habits that serve you and your partner better.
