Because 50% of the time people don't fully understand what it is. The Rates are growing because, IMO, our culture is more self centered then ever before.

in part, some text that may be pertinent to you:
In Theory They started out as just Cohabiting. I guess. But then We decieded we couldn't handle staying with one person, And we haven't been able to prove that wrong since.

when you and a spouse are able to operate as a team to achieve mutal goals its a great thing. most people will say that a marriage is 50/50. while that is true, the percentage will always shift. when your wife is ill you pick up the slack. when you work late for a week she picks up the slack.

expect the occasional disagreement too. to expect that two people living in the same home aren't going to have a clash of opinion once in a while is unrealistic. it happens.
Great way of putting it.

Marriage is about Sacrificing your Desires so that you can make your Spouses life better. In turn, they should be doing that for you. If they don't though, That's not an Excuse to not hold up your end of the deal.
