Having grown up between two very large families with dozens of siblings and cousins, I've had the opportunity to see the inside of many marriages. I literally can't count a single happily married couple that I know. Even uncles and aunts who had big beautiful families and made a lot of money have long since divorced. The only marriages I know of are frankly borderline nightmarish, filled with infidelity and only together because beta bucks or children. I live in an upper class neighborhood where from the outside many of the boomers seem to have a decent marriage, but I can only observe from afar. When ever I have seen the inside of a modern marriage, I've noticed they are more or less just putting on a performance for the public, behind which they are neurotically unhappy.
