In the "old days" it wasn't as easy for women to divorce financially. Nowadays, more women have financial Independence so divorce can be a viable option. Most divorces are good things. Get it over with and start over. Why be miserable the rest of your life?

You. I like you.

I suspect that people from those generations stayed together not because they believed marriage was a value that needed to be upheld, but because financial and social realities made divorce ruinous. Even if they believed at the outset that divorce was wrong, the years in a bad marriage surely made them rethink that.
