People get married or stay in serious relationships for money or fear of being single or being alone. Do these people just lie to their SO and tell them they love them and are really into them or what? If so, how could they lie like that?

Sometimes they lie to themselves too.......like "I stay for the kids" is a really common one. Lots of times it is just fear of being alone & fear of how life will change....but you have to take the risk. Being alone is better than being miserable in a marriage.........for any reason.

Other than money, I say some people stay in marriage only because they deem as the right thing to do and considered their responsibility.

Why does anyone do anything? There is no universal answer, other than "because that is what they choose to do".

Let's say they ARE lying to each other, how does this affect you such that you are wondering about it? That's ALOT of marriages to ponder.

If you're just concerned about the general state of long-term marriage in today's society, try to keep your own (marriage/LTR) going strong. That's all anyone can really do.

Do you really think it's that many marriages? So many get divorced......I wouldn't think so.....

In general yes because ALOT of ppl, who I don't know personally, are currently in long-term marriages and relationships. Why they collectively do or don't stay together would be alot to ponder for me. So, i could either try to figure out millions or thousands of other ppl's marriages or just focus on one. But, that's me.

Another reason why couples stay together its because of their children. A divorce has such a negative impact on a child's life.

Ita...I wouldn't try to figure it out either....but I don't think it's that many. Divorce is too common.....& surprisingly easy ...(I was divorced several months ago).

Well even before marriage. People who get married and one person isn't really in love but gets married anyways. DO they lie and tell them they are in love?
