Jiya.. Marriage is not for a convenience but a Social System and a family bonding.. On this basis there is lots of compromises and scarifices is done to sustain Marriage.. In America, being liberal in thinking and fun loving tendencies..they do not enjoy bonding.. and that is the reason Marriages are more broken in America.. No, they are not Cheaters..but they are FREE FROM BONDING AND MARRIAGE IS A BOND..

People dont take infidelity, harrassment or double standards in western society that is why their marriages end in divorce, in india most couples live together for the sake of society, there is no love, no respect , no loyalty, its just formality. western society is better in this respect they live together only when they are genuinely in love, no lies or they seperate out

It is a mistaken belief among Indians who think more than 50% marriages fail in America. This gives us great satisfaction as we feel superior that 100% marriages are successful here in India. We close our eyes to the failed institute of marriage in India where the woman has to live throughout her life with a man who is cruel and uncaring. Same is the case with men who are harassed and even 'hen pecked' by dominant wives. Western society has found a way out, it seems and we think it is the failure of their marriage institution.
First of all, how can one say authoritatively that "50% marriages fail in America". We like to say such things for the above mentioned reasons.
The concept of marriage in Western society is family centric and not sex centric. In India it is sex centric, no matter how much we shout from roof tops that we have traditional family values and marriages are part of it. The fact is that every male Indian is anxious about the virginity of his wife on the first night ...more

It does not prove them cheaters, but it proves that how couples do not tolerate each other; all live with their egos. In India, successful couple means they are not egoistic ; in which woman sacrifice their egos more than men do.
Also no horoscope matching, family intervention, love marriages, not adhering to the people in the society they live and their relations before taking such steps also go a long way in unsuccessful marriages there. In India most people believe in horoscope matching, family intervention before marriage, relations and people around not approving divorces make the marriages continue quite happily.

Its an old news..surveys done in 1980's showed 50 % divorce rates......no, divorce not necessarily means cheating...it has many other problems......eg no compatibility,misunderstandings,domentic violence,abuse etc.

why people forget about another 50% successful marriages in america and focus too much on faliures.
