    I would echo and bring together MMA and cheesecakebobby, it's great that women now have more independence but in the absence of need they now marry for romance, an even worse reason.

    A new understanding of marriage and it's benefits is needed.



    P.S. If anybody has a breakdown of divorce rate by age at marriage or socio-economic class I'd welcome a link.

    because monogamy is unnatural, and sadly people just get bored of each other over time.
    the reason its so prevalent now is that in developed places like the uk and america there are no social and economic reasons to prevent ppl from divorcing each other
