Marriage is a patriarchal arrangement in which the woman is supposed to have no choice and is to serve whoever becomes her master like she is serving a god. Women's liberation in the past 50-100 years has eroded this, and as equal marriages utterly fail, marriage itself is on the decline.
The feminist replacement of marriage, relationships, fail pretty badly too. Today, marriage is the pathway of unhappiness and a means to slavery to our inferiors.

Feminism is not destroying marriage. Peoples' expectations about what they will get out of and put into a marriage have changed and some people have not kept up with or do not accept those changes.
It should probably also be noted, that divorce rates are actually declining these days: www.nytimes.com/.../...-but-the-myth-lives-on.html
"About 70 percent of marriages that began in the 1990s reached their 15th anniversary (excluding those in which a spouse died), up from about 65 percent of those that began in the 1970s and 1980s. Those who married in the 2000s are so far divorcing at even lower rates. If current trends continue, nearly two-thirds of marriages will never involve a divorce, according to data from Justin Wolfers, a University of Michigan economist (who also contributes to The Upshot)."
The fact that people are marrying later, when they are more financially and emotionally stable, is what most experts think is causing the decline in the divorce rate. If it weren't for feminism making it possible for women to succeed on their own financially, and not have to depend on getting a husband at a young age, this would not be the case.
SOooo... it's actually probably more accurate to say that feminism has led to a reduction in divorce rates and martial unhappiness :)0
