Why Do So Many Relationships End?
If you take a look at the divorce statistics, I’m sure you’ll get shocked when you see the number of relationships that end and how many people are breaking up.
Actually, about 50 percent of relationships don’t make it.
What it the reason for this fact?
In the ‘good old days’ people were able to stay together way longer, maybe because they in many ways were dependent of each other, both financially and socially.
Both parts in the relationship had important roles that had a supportive function towards the other part. Staying together was often their only option.
Today, most couples have become so independent that they are practically living separate lives, both when it comes to their work and their leisure time.
Small arguments often end up in major conflicts and breakups, simply because the level of tolerance is so reduced.
What is your experience with this?
Do you believe that couples in ‘the old days’ stayed together simply because they were forced to?
How do you think the era of ‘independence’ in a relationship has affected or conception of real love?
