Things didn't work out exactly as planned anger and bitterness take over.
“The problem of unmet expectations in marriage is primarily a problem of stereotyping. Each and every human being on this planet is a unique person. Since marriage is inevitably a relationship between two unique people, no one marriage is going to be exactly like any other. Yet we tend to wed with explicit visions of what a “good” marriage ought to be like. Then we suffer enormously from trying to force the relationship to fit the stereotype and from the neurotic guilt and anger we experience when we fail to pull it off.”
I think some people sometimes just lose sight of what they meant when they said those vows after a certain period if time. And issues come up and all that. Things change with the marriage and eventually so do the people who are a part if them.
I know. People don't get that love doesn't just stay the exact same because you get married. It'll still evolve, haut like it did from the 1st date to the time they got married. But then again, I'm not married. But I've seen my fair share of marriages end for this exact reason.
idealism can be hilarious sometimes
there are issues that come up in marriages that neither one even imagined, and sometimes it's another family member that causes problems and drives a wedge between the couple, step-children can be a handful to deal with in the best of circumstances. But even so I believe that many marriages are marriages of convenience for one or both of the parties, and if one was deceived about their spouses motives for marriage that can be heartbreaking & most difficult to keep such a marriage going.
I know, but one party is generally deceptive and manipulative telling the other that they love them or anything that they want to hear when in reality they want someone to take over where their parents left off paying bills, buying groceries & taking care of the household chores. Or to raise their children from a previous marriage so they won't feel so tied down & can have their free time and no real love involved
