Basically it's a culture shift. It used to be men would have goals and women would support them. Now both partners have goals and they often have to choose between their goals and staying together. It's sad when partners have to split but in order to pursue their dreams it is often necessary. Another cause is simply that people change, it would be sad if we stayed the same, hopefully partners can find a way to grow together but if their growth takes them in different directions they may split. A marriage is a partnership, it would be wonderful if they all could last forever but often they were wonderful, they end, and the fact that they ended does not diminish the good they brought to both partners.
