Well back in the day, it was hard for a woman to leave a marriage if she was unhappy because it was socially unaccpetable and she had to depend on her husband financially. I have a grandmother who had divorces back in the 50's-she was a social outcast. So I think if we were still relying on men, we'd have a lower divorce rate. I also agree with everything you said too, it's a quick and easy fix when things get bad and ugly. Honestly, most everyone I know that has gone through a divorce either got married because they had a kid, they weren't in love got married really young, wanted to save themselves for marriage so married their highschool sweetheart a spouse cheated a spouse was physically or emotionally abusive

i agree with what you said ... i actually do believe if people get more giving and define their responsiblities upfront ... there would be lesser chances of matters leading upto divorce ... also that one should try to get a bit more tolerant and should expect that the partner would not tolerate it either this is the best way to live it thanks sid
