Call it a parrot thread if you must, but I think it's just as important. I noticed that people are getting married at an older age than what was more common "back in the day". What about divorces? I think divorces are happening at a younger age due to the fact that people don't want to put in the effort to "fix" a marriage. Too much work to mend fences, kids are more used to having parents seperated, money matters so much more.... For the record, I was married @ 25 and divorced @ 34 due to lost love and infidelity. We just didn't put the effort in to keep the love there. My parents were seperated for 20 years, but never got divorced . My grandparents went through infedelity back in the 40's but they made it work out. Is disposable marriages the way of the future?
