The Realities of Marriage?

Reported in the Telegraph and elsewhere today, a survey commissioned by West End solicitors Seddons reveals an extremely disturbing picture of marriage in Britain today, if the findings are to be believed. The study, of 2,000 married couples, apparently revealed that 56 per cent were not completely happy in their relationship and more than half had considered divorcing their spouse, with 29 per cent indicating that they were only staying in a 'doomed marriage' to avoid the financial upheaval of divorce.

Resisting the temptation to just make a frivolous comment about this being a great opportunity for divorce lawyers, I'll simply ask the question: are things really this bad? If they are, then perhaps we all need to be educated about the realities of marriage.
