Only 10-30% of married couples are "happy" in their marriage. On top of that half of all marriages end in a disgusting divorce. More so in some european countries.
Ask any old man what the worst decisions in his life were... Marriage will most certainly be one of them.
Modern marriage is all about quarrels. Not only that it's also extremely risky for men (no need to explain).

I've officially been married for a month to my best friend (we dated for 4 1/2 years before getting hitched.) Honestly, all through my 20's I had a hard time wrapping my mind around marriage - it just seemed so serious and permanent, and I was neither of those things (and I'm still not.) I think finding the right person is a big part of it, and honestly if I never found my husband I think I would've been fine with being unmarried for a long time - possibly forever - because I just was never very attracted to the idea of marriage before I met him. You're totally right, many marriages end in divorce, but that doesn't mean that marriage itself is flawed; it moreso reflects the fact that people are still rushing into marriage before they're ready and for the wrong reasons.
As far as "quarrels" go, yeah, if you're going to spend a lifetime with someone then you're going to have some disagreements. It shouldn't be the end of the world or the end of the marriage. A great indicator of whether or not someone is "right" for you (before you get married) is how you argue/fight/quarrel with each other.1
