dc.description.abstractPolicymakers tackle the 'problem' end of the relationship spectrum, but avoid investing much in early prevention programmes, thereby contributing to a 'marriage divide'. Although it is reasonable that distressed or divorcing couples receive more policy attention than intact families, preventative measures should be reconsidered. Addressing socioeconomic inequality, evaluating whether programmes can enhance relationship quality and acknowledging that couples – especially those at-risk – are unaware of, or uninterested in participating in preventative programmes would help.
