Why so many couples are breaking up?
From Kardashian, to Nordergreen, back to Longoria and J-LO. We don't know much about the average Joe and Jane...unless you want to share...
I think it has something to do with the level of committment that is there from the start. Now days people seem to view wedding vows as being something taken for a time, but not for life.
It also seems like people make the big committment before they know themselves, or the other person well enough to know if they are a good match.
I have been there, and I think one reason for the increasing amount of brake ups during holidays and vacations is because of expectations and the fact that we are free from work! In my experience it is easier to just live on and stay in a bad relationship, or a not so good relationship, during common and hectic days. We are so occupied with work and career, children, friends and everyday chores, that we somehow can live beside each other, not with each other, at least for a while! In some way one can say that our way of living isn't made for relationships anymore, because we are too busy and spend our time running around doing all the things that we think we must do!!
But when the bigger holidays comes, we are suddenly supposed to be happy, and to have a warm and cosy family feeling, filled with love and security. Somehow, the absence of those feelings becomes so clear and obvious during Christmas and New Years Eve.
Or maybe our expectations are unreasonable and we don't see and value the family we have.
So my answer is that the holidays make us see the problems that are already there from the beginning!
Honestly, I don't think men and women are emotionally compatible for long periods of time. Religion does seem to help with this, but usually at the woman's expense.
well, i'm a product of that epidemic...and it was heart breaking...i had a trouble overcoming it, that's why i searched for the answer, incompatibility is basic...but the bigger aspect is when one of the couple refuse to grow, you can't just allow to be stuck up in a quagmire your whole life?
People today seem to have a more fast-paced lifestyle, and unfortunately that carries over into their relationships. Everyone likes that feeling of newness and excitement, and today's society craves it more than ever before. So much so that one could even go so far as to say that people need it. Thus, relationship longevity suffers and many people break up after short periods of time due to simple boredom and sheer lack of that excitement and newness that society so craves today.
In Hollywood they live by the old bubblegum theory in which I made up. Once it looses its flavor they spit it out and grab another piece.

What are your thoughts about not having children?So many people want to have children, and they question those couples as to when they are going to have children? Are they really asking "when not?" or why not?

Why do so many couples divorce?Somewhere between 45-50% of married couples eventually end their marriage in divorce. Do you have any explanation why this occurs?

Unlike my previous forum topics, this does have a lot to do with me. I just broke up with someone that I cared very deeply for. I can't say why I was the one that decided to end things, but I can tell you that I did have very good reasons to break up with her. I can't tell anyone...

What's the difference between a break and breaking up?My interpretation was that a break was you're still technically together but you're spending time apart, whereas a break is that you're no longer together..
