If you force people the remain married by disallowing divorce then they will remain married. But that doesn't mean they are happy about it. I think the current trend is merely allowing people to express their discontent more freely. I see nothing wrong with expressing one's thoughts and being able to modify the situation. Better then being stuck where one doesn't want to be. I can't see it ever going back to "the good old days".
