My parents are on the brink of divorce. For them, the small annoyances that could be overlooked in their twenties definitely magnified into selfish habits as decades passed. They’re polar opposites now in the worst way

My parents got divorced after 23 years because my dad started cheating on my mom 😔 tore the entire family apart.

Same 22 years. Dad was cheating on my mom the whole time and she had no clue. He was an exec Ellen’s list, used his sick father as a cover.

My parents divorced after 30 years of marriage. Infidelity was there but the root cause being people change, as stated above. Sometimes there is not a main reason.

I'm happily married and approaching my 1 year anniversary, but I've been reading that the sudden change for many to wfh and being together all day every day has either led people to have much better or much worse relationships. I have found this very strange since we've always spent an unusual amount of time together (I've worked remotely since before I met him, but now I'm not traveling at all), and he also wfh, but I find it sad that some people's relationships are collateral damage from the pandemic, including long term marriages.

If they were meant to last, the pandemic wouldn't break them up. I think the pandemic is taking out marriages that would have broken up eventually anyway. If anything it's speeding up the inevitable, and that's probably a good thing for everyone.

My parents just divorced after 34 years. They’d considered it several times before but waited until all the kids were married then randomly pulled the trigger this year in order to be happy individually. No infidelity.

Anyone who has been married before knows a whole lot of ish goes down in a marriage. Marriage is the hardest thing. You battle it out with that one person through thick and thin. The only people that know the truth of that marriage are those two parties only. It’s tough. I wouldn’t look at it from a tip of the iceberg view.

Been with BF for 6 years and am now second guessing our future. Enjoy spending time together, but feel frustrated by the day-to-day because our whole world mostly centers around his ambitions/career path. It’s always a play-by-play of his workday and how he can move up in the career ladder and where to move that best works for him. I feel like I am constantly picking up the slack in terms of housework, providing emotional support, etc. I can’t imagine what this would be with kids. Advice?
