It is only my opinion of course but I think some of the major reasons is that People are no longer as tolerant of certain issues that marriage brings and do not have the time or strength to work them out. Quitting is so easy. Working out a relationship where there are so many diverse backgrounds and up bringing is much harder than when life was more simple. Two parents working, a bad economy, troubled children, all contribute. We used to only worry about getting diseases like measles mumps and chicken pox but now its autism and anger and substance abuse and bully's and mental issues and pressure for sexual maturity. There isn't a vaccine for those things. Those issues and effects are present in marriage.. as well as less self control. Marriage is hard enough when two people actually stay in love, but it's harder than ever to deal with so much stuff in our lives. In general society is angry and no one cares about others that much any more.
There's many theories why. Some believe it's a generational thing that could have been caused by the sexual rebellion seen in the 60's that love can end or that our societies morals suck. Parents are having children out of wedlock and will not get married.
There are different reasons that may make parents divorced examples being lack of love between them and infidelity. It would be advisable to get help to manage to handle the situation, and face the fact that they might not get back together.
there just seems to be a lot of that these days. people fall in love for the wrong reasons or were never really loving eachother when they got married. and people dont know how to work things out. and for others it is the best thing. if u r not happy and stressed and ur other is the cause it is time to move on. hope that helped. :)
