Hey Kevin...I think many have settled, although not so many as existing in that category 50 years ago. When I was growing up, and way before then, you married, had a family, raised that family, saw them out the door, retired and eventually left room for those younger than you. No matter what problems you had in your marriage, you worked them out and kept on. Marriages lasting over 50 years were commonplace and divorce was rare. If you were lucky enough to find your true love, fine, and if not, you made him or her your true love through hard work. Nowadays, with 50% of couples being divorced, as negative as that sounds, I'd say the majority of those married are actually in love with their mate. Bad and good news all rolled into one, eh?
