Marriage for love started with the industrial revolution right around the same time as individualism began in USA which in itself.. a selfish relationship.
Marriage for love has a 50% divorce rate while arranged marriages have a 4% divorce rate... now why is this?
Marriage for love is selfish, you can hear in the language "he doesn't make me happy, i don't feel the passion or she doesn do (insert complaint). "me me me"
Arranged marriage sounds very different "we are not good parents, our income is not or sustainable." we we we
Now to get into how and why these things differ is a whole article on it's own but divorce rates in the USA actually have been consistently at 50% for the last 30 years.
Why do women ask for them? I didn't know this was a stat but if i had to guess.. I'd imagine it's because women often talk and analyze relationships more then men. Given this.. they are more opt to make decisions or be more proactive in relationship issues.

they are common because it's now expectable in most places to get a divorce if you're not happy
it's also easier than before and as it is accepted more people aren't ashamed to get divorced
