Do you think people don't know one another well enough? Do you think women have learned to be stronger and not as submissive as they were back in the day of our grandparents.....because I don't think my mum is submissive LOL Is it because of financial differences that weren't around 20 years ago, such as credit cards? Both parents working out of the home? The way the economy has changed? Lack of spirituality? Did our parents not "teach" us what all is entailed into a commitment, since they were so overyly busy just making ends meet in this changing society? Changes in how society views divorce these days where back when it was frowned upon?
Just continuing to wrap my head around why I have become a statistic. I think it's a combination of all the reasons above. Makes me wonder if my children's generation will go to one extreme or the other. As in less marriages because things don't work out....or just even higher divorce rates.

I agree with tnm. I also believe women have become more independent and liberated and men don't know how to control us anymore...lol. House holds have to have two incomes to manage now-a-days and we women have found we can do more than we were taught and so we have become less submissive because we are too damn tired...lol. And this can cause a strain on a marriage.
