What is Going on with Marriages These Days?

Shell. Shocked.

In the last 6 months I've had 3 friends tell me that they are struggling in their marriages. I'm not talking about hitting a rough patch, I mean the "I'm attracted to someone else" or "I don't want to be married anymore" kind of statements. I've also watched another marriage disintegrate completely. My own marriage has even had some deep struggles.

And it just causes me to wonder what is going on with marriage these days. Is it just my age group that are suddenly hitting this spot in their marriages that they can't/don't want to hold it together anymore? Or, is it that satan is attacking these Christian marriages in ways we never expected to have to face?

I'm blown away.
