5. this is my experience, too
my parents are divorced, and one of them and my step-parent are, largely, happily married. But I think it's more about comfort zones and the desperate clingy love that develops over time (well at least it did for me with my ex - like we had bought into this scheme and had to stick with, had had had to make it work even though it clearly wasn't). They also argue quite a lot and both bitch about the other when I am alone with them, blaming the other for the problems and dissatisfactions in their life. One of them told me once that the other had pressured them into marriage, too, which I thought was telling. To me, marriage is, in a practical sense, a way to try to bend someone to your will. If that makes sense. At least that's my experience of it. I can think of two people I know how claim to be happily married and have been so for many years. Two. Out of hundreds of couples I know.
