Why do women dream of marriage despite how much work marriage actually is?

Bethany22

While men tend to pay close attention to the signs of how difficult marriage actually is, and therefore get discouraged by it and want to post-pone it until as long as possible, women tend to cling to the Disney princess ideal of marriage, no matter how much evidence they see in real life that contradict that ideal (i. e., their parents' marriages, their friends' marriages, etc.). And you would think that the statistic of 80% of divorces are initiated by women would be just as scary to women as it is to men, as it's a sign they eventually will not like the guy as much as they did in the beginning. Yes, they will be 'rewarded' with divorce money, but that shouldn't be enough of a reason to maintain their positive attitude on marriage.
