Infidelity is usually a factor that causes broken marriages. Sometimes, failed marriages could be caused by the couples having divergent lifestyles or pursuing different careers.

Celebrity marriage breakups seem to be on the rise. Observers posit that many of them live fake lives which one of the partners may find distasteful.
Again, it doesn’t usually take long before the partners discover the empty rich and glamorous facades some of them exhibit and storm out of the union.
