Jon Z. Bennington's curator insight, October 24, 2013 4:35 PM

This article "hits the nail on the head" as far as the main cause of divorce in America. We view it as not a big deal. Divorce is considered easy and a way to instant gratification if our level of happiness is not constantly maintained. We don't mind going to battle, we just do not want to go to war, but war is typically what it takes to achieve victory. A marriage is one of the most if not the most difficult "responsibility" to have in life. It takes someone of true grit and iron resolve to be willing to go the whole way "until death do us part." I failed the first time, I do not plan on failing the second.
