  • People need to get married for the reasons that matter, such as communication, personality, hobbies, interests, that sort of thing. They also need to be mature enough to handle the lows equally as much as the highs. Not to mention be ready to support each other when things don't go well and be committed to the relationship and helping it and each other improve.

    But many people these days, over the past decade, several decades, they're more interested in sex, looks, and just what's on the surface. Then after marriage, they (both in the case of men and women) discover the fantasy significant other actually has depth that they maybe don't agree with.

    From there it turns into blaming the other person for what they themselves didn't bother to notice before. Then divorce occurs.

    Of course there are other reasons for divorce, but this is what I have learned is the largest factor.

  • Yes they just had their 51 year anniversary and still going , honestly I think that's part of the reason I value a relationship , if my parents can do it I can do it , I think people that had split parents r usually the ones that don't make it and cheat

  • The problem is mainly the internet. When there is a problem in a relationship, it's easy to find someone new instead of working on the relationship

  • Split up when I was 15, they divorced when I was 20. Very messy. They can’t even be in the same room, it’s rather awkward

  • Divorce is way more common because it's 300% less taboo and people are less scared to leave unhealthy relationships and more aware of what an unhealthy relationship looks like.
