With the divorce rate going up, it is easy to wonder if we are simply doomed to face more divorce. Can relationships really make it?  I was pleased to join Anthropologist and Human Behavior Researcher Helen Fisher, YourTango Experts VP Melanie Gorman, Marriage and Family Therapist and Consultant SaraKay Smullens, and Relationship Retreat Guide Mary Ellen Goggin, as we tackled the future of relationships, and agreed we are bullish. We have the drive to connect, we have the opportunity to connect, and we have the ability like never before to mate for love.    

We keep hearing that the divorce rate has been 50% for years. Is it going to go up because we live longer? Is there hope? Our Expert Panel, led by Helen Fisher, has reason for hope.
