I'm russian and in my culture its very rare to get a divorce... and I grew up in a old fashioned family and I believe that no matter what divorce shouldnt be the answer I mean unless ur husbands raping ur kids or something... I doubt that would happen but I mean I always believed that if a guy cheats on you and you have kids you will mess up ur kids lives by having a divorce or wut not... I mean if ur husband cheats on u... or ur bf... I mean at night they still come to u... they are urs at the end of the day.. yes its horrible I have been cheated on before... a horrible feeling and all but is it crazy to want a marriage to last forever no matter what?

No offense, but I think your comment "in my culture divorce its very rare " is factually incorrect.
If you look at the divorce rates on wikipedia, russia comes top. The only countries with higher divorce rates are very small, provincial countries of Gibraltar and the Isle of Mann.
Russia has a divorce rate of 4.4 (that's divorces per 1000 population)
Italy 0.7 (the lowest western country)
(go the wikipeadia and search for divorce demographic) I would post a link but last time I did that I got a message from guys and girls, telling me it was selfish to post links and threatening to close my account?!
I don't think it is crazy to want a marriage to last, but my attitude is rather than forcing your self to stay in an unhappy marriage, it should make you think long and hard before you do get married. In the US there is the bazaar habit of marry in the early twenties and then getting divorce 2-3 years later. If an American couple marry at the age of 23 their is only a 20% chance they will not be divorce in 3 years. Why marry young, wait tell your late twenties early thirties.
