Bob Sirott

LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 15: A tug of war-style “Divorce” machine is seen in the “Novelty Automation” gallery on February 15, 2017 in London, England. The gallery includes a selection of handmade arcade-style satirical machines, ranging from an alien probe device to a machine that simulates trying to successfully climb the housing ladder, with or without the assistance of the “Bank of Mum and Dad”.

Brad Wilcox is the Director of the National Marriage Project, and a Professor at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. He joined Bob Sirott to talk about how couples have coped throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, how internet searches of “divorce” spike in January, and how living apart may help save a marriage.
