Can't identify why the leaves of my peace lily are turning brown!

Right after my peace lily flowered, the leaves have rapidly started turning yellow or brown before drying completely. Sadly, new leaves aren't growing at a similar rate. I water it every 2-3 days. I've tried keeping it indoors, on the window sill where it gets a little light. I repotted it recently and noticed that the roots are drying off too. It has come down to literally 2 leaves from a good 7-8. What's going on? What can I do? Adding a photo if it helps.

Thanks in advance.~~SR

Peace lily is a bog plant it love it's feet moist at all times, I even had one growing in an aquarium... That one might recover after a while but I'd buy a new one and keep it standing in water.

Raymie is is right. These are thirsty plants. I water mine everyday and also sit it outside when it rains. It NEVER gets direct sunlight.

Thanks Silentrunning that's a cracker of a specimen there...
The Spathes are "designed" to grow out of the water for pollination, hence they are taller than the leaves.
Can I just say Full sun won't harm these plants providing you spray them daily (probly easier to put them in semi-shade)
