50% divorce rate is a scary number and although there are a myriad of reasons why that is, I have a theory.
I’ve been reading a lot about men’s capacity to settle down and fear of commitment and the conclusion is that no matter how amazing you are, if a man isn’t willing to settle down, he just won’t do it. What he will do is settle down with the less amazing partner when he is ready for commitment. That being said, how can you have a successful and long-lasting relationship with someone that is your less than ideal partner? How can you have a meaningful relationship with someone that doesn’t have the qualities you search in a wife, especially when you met that ideal woman and let her go? That’s when the 50% comes in. Once settled into this “convenient” marriage, the unhappiness settles in and the realities come out, and hence assets are being split and custody being fought.
What do you think? Is settling the cause behind divorce?
