Are we too quick to seek out divorce?
“I married him hoping I would eventually fall in love with his nice self. I think I should split!” “I no longer feel the madly-in-love bliss I felt when we first met. I think I should split!” “He loves me too much. Do you think I should split?”
We all get married for different reasons. Some good, some selfish. But once we get married and a few years go by, we start wondering if it was really worth it. And more often than not, we split from our partners - TOO SOON - in the belief that we will be happier. Then we find we aren’t. And those who stay and work on their marriages often do find themselves happier down the line.
It’s easier to blame unhappiness on not being in love with your spouse when in real sense, you are actually unhappy for other reasons. But then again, everyone is entitled to seek a satisfying life.

Do you think American couples are too quick to seek out divorce without at least trying to save their marriages? Do you think we have idealized notions of what we could be missing in our marriages or what happiness in marriage is?
