before I was born (1945) there was very few divorce in my family and also in the rest of the country. Since WWII the divorce rate has gone up considerably from decade to decade..reasons are incompatiblity, infidelity, culture differenene, and different value system. I have have been told many time by men and women that men are not mature enough for marriage..this is not scientific..just an observation. but I think this: Women marry hoping to change the man men marry and hoping that the women never change. I have never heard that "she may think that she is always right" but it has a ring to it..and it could be a factor because my mother was always right with us children and had a firm hand but my father was the bread winner and the head of the house but still had to respect my mothers wishes too. If mama is not happy nobody is going to be happy. Man may be the head of the house but the women is the neck. Meaning she can turn him any way she wants. The object of matrimony should be happiness. Mutual happiness. but what do I know as I only been married 22 years and my parents have been married over 60. The greatest gift a man can give his children is to love their mother.
