When you look at people through their lifespan much of people's opinions comes from your relationship history or marriages. I have seen first hand how many relationships end because poeple just aren't happy with the same person forever. They just lose interest. It's not hate nor a deceitful act, they just want something else. As the divorce rate climbs, it has me thinking more and more about the basic primal and animalistic feelings of us as humans. We're no different than animals, self awareness or not. I want this to be a nice little conversation, no religious arguments are welcome.

I don't think that it's unattainable. Most people get married, and many marriages remain happy and committed through the couple's lifetime.0

I think most people get into marriage thinking that it is going to solve all their problems and once they are married they can live happily ever after... Wrong!
The thing of it is I think a marriage requires two mature people that know a relationship is like a garden... it has to be watered and nourished... It's not just something you obtain and don't have to do anything after that point... No, it is a never ending process.
Yes, in many aspects humans are not much different than animals... In fact we are not much more than fancy animals with high tech gear... but it is the high-tech wiring within us that cause us to be so complicated, unlike animals.
I think as far as a one life partner, I've never had it... I like the idea... But I think some of it may be just finding an animal like you, one of your kind where you are compatible and think about relationships in a similar way and accept each other for who they are not for who they want you to be.1
