‘Til death do us part? Maybe not

The old notion that people stay together for life appears to be a little outdated. Individuals no longer want to stick with each other as long as they did in the past. Instead, they are getting divorces for reasons that wouldn’t have worked before.

While the LGBTQ community continues to push for greater marriage equality across the world, the institution of marriage itself is becoming less popular. Fewer and fewer young people are deciding to take part in it. And if they do, they are waiting until much later in life to get started. 

What’s more, the number of marriages that fail is actually on a slight upward trajectory in some countries. In many places, you now have less than a 50-50 shot at making it work. 

The old notion that people stay together for life appears to be a little outdated. Individuals no longer want to stick with each other as long as they did in the past. Instead, they are getting divorces for reasons that wouldn’t have worked before. 

The following infographic drives this point home with some insightful statistics. People aren’t breaking up for the reasons you’d expect. Instead, the majority of the top reasons, besides infidelity, have to do with lack of love or happiness. Sometimes spouses just fall out of love and there seems to be no way to bring it back. 

That’s not for want of trying. Most couples spend around 18 months on average trying to save their marriages before filing for divorce. And many people spend around two years thinking about divorce and whether they should try something new. Therefore, the old adage – ‘til death do us part – may no longer apply.
