50% of marriages fail, despite those numbers will you still get married?

That's an inaccurate statistic you have there. Almost half as many divorces occur as marriages per year. That doesn't mean half of all marriages are destined to fail. In fact one statistic claims that "81% of college graduates who got married in the 1980s at age 26 or older were still married 20 years later" and that "age is one of the clearest predictions of divorce." They also say the divorce rates are at its lowest level since 1970. If you want to find any of this stuff, I got it from articles on the Huffington Post and the NY times websites.
Basically, you shouldn't let the 50% statistic scare you if you want to get married. If you don't rush into marriage and are actually willing to work out marital problems with your partner, you'll probably be fine.
All that being said, I doubt I'll get married or at least I haven't planned on it.1
