Why do the younger generation find it difficult to shed their egos now?Every few months, divorce is in the air. The compatibility between young couples is becoming so less and, in the past decade, it has reached its lowest levels. This happens even in love marriages.
Why should this happen? Not many reasons are clearly visible. The ego tantrums of either or both partners is one problem. Those who are now 60 plus and above, are perhaps the last generation where the social pressures and the parental influence played a big part in the couples still living under one roof. Those who are now in the fifties might have called it a day as well, but for some pressure, particularly from their children. But for those who are in their twenties today or early thirties, divorce is no more a dirty word.
Emotions and feelings cannot be hidden. Transparency and openness and a spirit of give and take can make a whale of a difference. Similarly, looking at the long-term and not the short-term is one sure way of breaking free from the big problem of having to face the music, sooner or later.
Divorce is no solution to any problem and the more divorces we have, the more problems we have as well.
