    Because of lack of mutual understanding.

    Because; Love Is Like A Dying Rose; People take It Too Lightly; Words Can Hurt More Then Sticks; They Continue Saying Before They Think; Fight Over The Slightest Issue; Leaving Love To Bleed.

    Most People Don't Accept God Into Marriage; And Take It Too Soon; Three Strings Are Better Then Two

    it depends on the culture and the society of your country. In our country, our family guides us and always take care of us. From our childhood we learn to respect each other and try to build up a good relation with the family.

    When asked the secret to a happy marriage, Johnny Cash replied, "separate bathrooms."

    The real reason so many marriages end in divorce is because divorce seems like the easy choice.  Our media has degraded the institution of marriage purposely for the purpose of weakening America in favor of a global government.

    The leading cause for divorce is and always has been selecting the wrong mate.

    Most of us don't take the time to do the introspective thinking required to figure out what we truly want and need in a partner.
    Once you know what you want you have to be willing to take the time to find someone who "naturally" wants what you want.
    A lot of people become engaged during the "infatuation phase" of a relationship without knowing many things about each other.
    Sometimes people get married too young. Mabye 30+ is an ideal age for a first marriage. (Hopefully by then a person has completed their education and began building a career).

    Lastly doing things in the wrong order causes mistakes.
    Ideally the following should be established in this particular order before saying, "I do".

    1.Honesty, 2.Trust, 3.Loyalty, 4.Love & Devotion, 5.Intimacy, and 6.emotional security. (These steps require time)

    The vast majority of my failed relationships began with step #5 and then I attempted to work my way backwards!
    There may be some exceptions but for the most part it rarely works doing things that way.

    The reason why the divorce rate is so high is because people no longer believe in or listen to Jehovah God's Commands.
    Some might argue that in many cases the husband and wife are simply a bad match; that they are hopelessly incompatible and should never have got married in the first place! To be sure, many couples do take courtship lightly and fail to lay a firm groundwork for communication before marriage.  Nevertheless, the success of a marriage does not rest solely upon so-called compatibility. Far more crucial is whether a couple is willing to accept God’s standards for marriage and apply the Bible’s principles or not. Consider just a few of the things the Bible says about the roles and responsibilities of husbands and wives:
    ? “Let wives be in subjection to their husbands as to the Lord.”—Ephesians 5:22, 23.
    ? “Husbands, continue loving your wives, just as the Christ also loved the congregation and delivered up himself for it . . . Husbands ought to be loving their wives as their own bodies.”—Ephesians 5:25, 28. 
    Just think if these two principle's were followed the divorce rate would be dramatically reduced.

    "And if somebody could overpower one alone, two together could make a stand against him. And a threefold cord cannot quickly be torn in two."
    Ecclesiates 4:12

    Jehovah God is the source of maintaining a marriage.
