Diclaimer: I am not going through the following:
Not all relationships last, we all know that. But today, I shall specifically speak about marriage. Some marriages don't last. And that's ok. When people say they used to last more before and today's impatient generation cannot cope I disagree, respectfully.
Yes, we are more impatient and besabra than our ancestors. I admit. But I do realise now, as an adult that even though some marriages last they are just a farce, bound by kids or financial constraints. Merely 2 strangers waiting for death, bound my majboori. The difference today is that if someone is in a toxic marriage and it is not working out they choose to part ways, despite kids in some cases.
So what do we do, because this is still frowned upon even if more acceptable. We get curious, we bombard with questions and we spread rumors. Is it fair? No it is not. Divorce is legal and permitted by state and religion but it is unpleasant. It is hurtful, it needs healing time. It needs space.
Rather than picking sides or trying to get to the bottom of things, why not step away? And if you're a friend, offer a distraction. You're not Sherlock so you don't need to get to the bottom of it. You probably don't possess the deduction skill either.
Always know that if you're going through one, someone better is out there for you and if you're observing one, know that you can be better than a prying neighbor. Marriage is a gamble, if yours worked out you are lucky, if not, it wasn't meant to be. The intactness of a marriage doesn't guarantee its strength and idealism.
Let people move on. It was a contract, now it is naught. Simple. .
