The home of a married couple is supposed to provide its members the assurance of equitable distribution of food, clothing, shelter and sex. Often the home is crowded with other guests, some of whom are not welcome to each member of the couple. The prevalent customs and laws of marriage often allow other guests to encroach into the homes of married couple, even for sex, where the members of a married couple should have exclusive right to each other only.
This encroachment into the exclusive rights, often leads to divorces, which are increasing in geometric progression.
Often people carry on without divorces, because it is very expensive, involving lots of time and money; people prefer to survive by spending their time and money on those pursuits, which help them to earn their living. In most cases, divorces are not liked by parents of the members of a couple. In developing countries like India and Pakistan, divorced wives, may not be remarried again and honour killing is often the rule; but the husbands who tolerate the infidelities find themselves deprived and their time and money get exploited by the guests, invited by the spouse.
Those who divorce, often have to part with a share of their earning and assets with their previous partners. Often they cannot get another partner, who are compatible with their mindset and cannot build the mutual trust, essential for a married couple.
