Getting married is truly one of the most important decisions people make in their entire lives. Finding the right person to share your life with is not only difficult, but it is also not full proof regardless of how sure you are that you have found your other half. No matter how in love you are, the truth is that things change, feelings shift and people do fall out of love.
Chances are you have heard that about 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. While this statistic was true in the 1980’s, it no longer is actually accurate. When you look at the numbers, the rate of divorce has actually decreased significantly over the last 25 years. Many social scientist chalk up the rise of divorce in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to the spread of the feminist movement. At this time in history, women began to reject traditional gender roles and leave marriages in which they felt stifled.
