What do you think is the cause of divorce?
I would have to say infidelity, money and falling out of love. Money is an issue. It makes a relationship more difficult. Falling out of love is also an issue. They get different interests and they become their own person and independent.

Two things. The first thing is a deterioration in societal values. In my parents' generation, they had a commitment to children and to one another. Now commitment is not much of an issue. Second is that the state and federal government have too many anti-poverty programs that give incentives to single parents. Falling out of love and divorcing is a convenient excuse. Both spouses have to not make that happen.
Bad communication. Some couples get so busy. They just don't have time to talk. They don't want to talk. Time is a barrier. Our lives are so busy.
Lack of commitment. Not getting your feelings out on the table. There is a fear that you'll disappoint the significant other or say the wrong thing.
Compatibility. I have friends that are going through a divorce. They just grew apart. One was doing their work and not paying attention to their needs. Another was involved in cheating.
