Has Marriage Become 'Too Much To Handle'?

By: Carlos Cavallo

Technology and the worsening economy are big reasons why most marriages crumble from the inside - at least that's what this author believes.

And it's kind of hard to disagree, given how social media can drive a wedge between couples if they allow it.

Just go to any restaurant; you'll easily spot a handful of couples with their respective faces buried in their phones, tablets or what-have-you.

The rising cost of living and education aren't a joke either - a severe lack of money can easily put a huge strain on relationships, no matter how strong they are.

But here's the thing: every generation has its own set of challenges. Back then, families dealt with the Great Depression, World War I and II, and a lot of other turbulent socio-economic factors.

But that didn't stop a lot of those couples from staying together.

So why should today's problems stop any of us from doing the same thing?

Although the article has a pretty grim outlook on marriage, it does offer a silver lining of hope at the end. Check it out and let me know what you think.

5 Reasons We Can't Handle Marriage Anymore

Marriages today just don't work.

The million dollar question? Why not?

It's a pretty simple concept — fall in love and share your life together. Our great grandparents did it, our grandparents followed suit, and for many of us, our parents did it as well.

Why the hell can't we?

Many of you will ask what gives me the right to share my advice or opinions.

I've been divorced myself. But I'm only one of the many people today that have failed at marriage. And while some of us have gone through a divorce, others stay in their relationships, miserably, and live completely phony lives.

These same people, though, are quick to point the finger and judge others for speaking up.

I've spent the better part of the last three years trying to understand the dating scene again.

Back when I met my ex-wife in 2004, things were just so different. Social media had yet to explode. I had this desire to ask her about her day simply because I didn't know.

Texting was just starting to make its way into mainstream society, so if I wanted to speak to her, I had to call her.

If I wanted to see her, I had to drive to her house and knock on her door. Everything required an action on my part, or hers.

Today, things are different though.

Looking back nearly 11 years, I began to wonder how different things were for the older generations.

More importantly, I wonder how different they will be for my children.

Our generation isn't equipped to handle marriages — and here's why:

1) Sex becomes almost non-existent.

I don't know about you, but...
