50% of Co-habitators Separate

An interesting article by CNN states that half of all couples co-habitate before marriage. It also states that half of co-habitating couples separate within 5 years.

So maybe marriage isn't the problem. It seems to me that whether you co-habitate or you marry that the odds are pretty similar as to whether or not you will last as a couple.

Maybe we are just so into ourselves that we can't stand to commit to another person for any length of time, even if that commitment is imaginary (as with co-habitators).

Maybe, like with school shootings and the like, it is a basic failure of who we are now as Americans - particularly in comparison to who were as Americans 50 years ago (pre-1960s).
