    47% of UK marriages end in divorce.

    53% for the US and 71% (!!) for Belgium.

    Probably because it's easier to divorce now than say, 50 odd years ago?

    You are part of the generation of empowered (young) Western (women) who trashed the patriarchy, temperance, and monoculturalism, and brought in female promiscuety, alcohol and substance abuse, and subversive foreign (mal)-culture that presents an insidious, intoxicating mix of 'arts' (music) with glamorised casual misogyny. I've no clue why you're complaining, if you ain't campaigning (against this madness) :dontknow:

    Clue or two above + death of the church + degradation of reputational ethical safeguards e.g. communitarianism :yy:

    Because there are more sluts now and less decent caring women who want to settle down and have a family. More want to party into their 30s and never grow up thinking they are little princesses, what guy would want a woman like that!

    Oscar Wilde said nobody should get married. It's just a human invention,there is no way you can be interested in the same girl forever. It's like eating the same food every day
