Once upon a time, you needed a reason for a divorce. Just saying "I don't want this marriage to work, but I'd like to take most of my partner's assets" really wasn't enough reason. A woman couldn't do that, and often she needed continued financial support from her husband.
So they stayed together, but she just turned off all the sex and physical affection for the next 40 or 50 years.
Most women do get bored with even the best of men, and fall out of love by about 4 years. Now they have financial options, with easy divorce. I asked myself recently "Do I actually know any man who walked out on a marriage, and wasn't prepared to make it work?". The answer was "No". Just think about that, and ask yourself the same question.
I doubt that people are cheating much more or less than they ever did. Women who cheat in marriage typically begin after 5 years (they "fell out of love" at 3 or 4 years). About 1 in 3 women will cheat. Men who cheat in marriage typically begin to cheat after 10 years (remember, they didn't get any sex or affection after 4 years, and their wife might be fucking someone else). Nearly 50% of men will cheat at least once during marriage, but not as often as the women who cheat.

While most men can stay physically attracted to the same woman for 20 or 40 years, most women have a limit of about 4 years for being attracted to the same man. There's no fixing it, because it's instinctive and caused by body chemicals.0
