It seems like EVERY marriage I've seen (besides my parents and a couple other friends) end in divorce. It's a bit discouraging considering I want to get married one day. Is it completely hopeless for our generation?

a few reasons I believe marriage has a low success rate.
1: people are getting married very young and have a hard time making it work
2: money and other financial issues, it seems to me some couples have it worse off when it comes to handling money. one might work more than the other or one or both just don't know how to handle money.
3: first comes lust, than comes baby, than comes marriage, than because they did the order wrong divorce. it "should" come first comes love, than protected sex (condoms), than marriage, and last a baby if they both want one.
4: getting a divorce is too easy an answer now days, back 20-30 years ago people got married for life through good and bad times and it seems people forget that marriage has bad times and get divorce for like $45 or something. I think a divorce should cost $200+ that way you really have to hate each other before calling it quits.
5: lack of commitment.
6: jealously where there shouldn't be and or too much jealously.3
