Why do you think most marriages end after only a couple to few years? What do you think in YOUR opinion is the reason why people seem to be so fickle with a very serious commitment?

A lot of it could be that people are too young when they enter into marriage. Another problem would be getting married too fast without first really knowing each other. Then there people who are just never satisfied and constantly looking for greener grass even though they are supposed to be in a "committed" relationship. There are other reasons though these may be less common. Someone could marry an abusive person who was carefully controlled during courtship but only revealed this after marriage.

Yep, that was me I thought I was going to marry the father of my children and realized it would be a big mistake. He was abusive in the worst way and I'm lucky I got out of the relationship and met a loving, caring, supportive man.

Your such a pessimist but anyway, I think why most marriages are not working well after a couple of years is because of lack of communication between partners. Always bear in mind that communication plays a very vital role in every relationship esp. to marriage. So just keep your lines open:)

well I'm not trying to be a pessimist, I'm actually an extreme optimist. I just read about and witness so many failed marriages, that I felt we just don't have those loving lasting 20+ years of marriage relationships in our society anymore. It's scary, I am all for longevity in a marriage. I like to think your marrying your best friend not just a lover.
