It is an unfortunate phenomenon these days that couples part ways very soon and enter into new realtionships just to experience a fresh break up. When I think about a marriage relationship, I see it as a relationship that we enter into calling someone as mother,father,sister and brother, relationships that can not be broken even if we want to. Then why do we not accord the same sanctity to this special relationship that is called marriage and make it enduring for a life time ?

peeples, the reasons for severing ties that you have quoted are all valid and I agree to that extent but the people who aspire everything perfect in their spouse are deficient in art of living and indulge in break ups on frivolous pretexts.
Harishprasad, It's unrealistic to expect anyone to be perfect! However it's commonsense that people who tend to agree on the (major things in life) also tend to be happier and have less fights. The goal is to chose someone who shares your values!
I am not averse to all that but one should not be too rigid so far comparability for each other is concerned. An accommodative attitude plays a magic in living. Thank you for such a nice response having a great depth and all wisdom.
Marie Flint, I agree to your view that we must sprinkle some spirituality on us to appreciate good as well as bad traits in our partner and move with lives with a greater understanding. Spilt ups are there cause couple fail to gauge each other well.
dashingscorpio, humans are all imperfect and to search about everything pleasing and satisfying in our partner causes conflicts in our lives. We fallible are to move with our vices and virtues and remember that only God is 100% fit and not we.
Harishprasad, We agree human beings are "imperfect" which means we (make mistakes) and sometimes we choose the (wrong) partner/spouse for ourselves. Not everyone marries the person God intended for us to be with. Oftentimes we (ignore) red flags!
