Dreams of 'self-discovery' destroying marriage, claims psychologist

This article provides some insight on the role of marriage, how it has changed over time, and how it affects the marriage success rate of today.  The divorce rate has grown since the 1800s, when a successful marriage was more about bearing children and putting food on the table. In present day, however, there is a higher emphasis on love and companionship, and many look for a relationship in which they can grow psychologically over time to be the best person they can be with the help of their spouse. Because of hectic lives and limited time to focus on this, people find themselves feeling emotionally unfulfilled in their marriages.
