It may be, and there are reasons why
Anyone who’s been married for more than a few months, maybe weeks, will tell you it’s tough. And considering how divorce rates have climbed over the last few decades, it seems to have gotten harder than ever.
So what’s that all about? It might have something to do with the adoption of no-fault laws in the late 1960’s, which in a nutshell gave us permission to believe that breaking up a marriage is acceptable and the reasons for doing so is nobody’s business. In effect, from these laws we gained the freedom to choose our own paths. But there was an unintended side effect — divorce’s negative stigma was removed, and that meant couples can split up and still retain their good standing in the community.
