Because women think that they can make it on their own ... which they can, if they don't have children.
But, as everyone knows, it takes a village to raise a child (nevermind more than one) so unless you live in a house with your extended family mom, dad, uncles, aunts, cousins, grandma, grandpa, etc ... you had better think really hard about breaking the bond you swore to uphold ... marriage - there's no undoing the damage that it brings to children's lives ... don't do it.
Couldn't have said it better myself. Agree 100%
Very easy to answer, the need to stay together is no longer there or than deep love, both parents are working in many families. Only children provide a reason to stick things out when times are hard. Now that husbands and wives have careers some feel empowered to make rash decisions such as divorce.
I agree. People defiantly look at marriage as all warm and fuzzy and no work.
Curious as to what the 'joke' was?
Yes it has become for so many just for the good times and they do not work at relationship its sad:-)
