1. Marriage Lessons: Divorced Man's Top 20 Things to Do Differently, Herald Sun
Posted in late July, Rogers' frank and self-effacing list of marriage dos and don'ts has been shared and reshared by more than 350,000 people around the world, with more than 10,000 likes and hundreds of positive comments.
