Maybe you and your husband came from different cultural, ethnic or racial backgrounds. These different weren’t issues for you, but other problems in your marriage persisted and ultimately drove you apart.

Here are some of the issues you might face:
• The “I told so” problem – How to manage friends or family members who didn’t think your marriage would work out (or didn’t want it to) because of the cultural, religious or ethnic differences;
