Aepgirl, I found the comment by BradfordLass very interesting. You object to her comparisons but I don't think that you can compare today's marriages with those of previous generations either.
There used to be a strong stigma to divorce. Couples stayed married for life due to social pressure and financial necessity. There was no welfare state. You had to 'make your bed and lie in it'. Generations of children were raised by parents who hated each other. I can't see that as a tradition to be proud of.
