Most of the times western couples having a long stint in marriage survive so only out of pure love and dedication to each other. The concept of obligation and support in a marriage is not hard and fast and women and men are largely independent. Thus to find a western couple committed to each other for years is a rarity indeed.

Not all couples but yes, Up to some extent ur point is right. Most of the Indian couples who are not of the same nature use to stay together because of pressure of the family and society and for the sake of their children.

Living with what we have is our policy
Living for fun and leave it and live in Peace is their policy
So Policy counts in this.
All due to their culture and society requirements

There is high rate of divorce , they want to be very sure before getting married, they themselves come from broken homes, but all this will still not give them the guarantee. Marriage has no guarantee here or there.

freedom is very important, marriage reduces it
