There's no doubt that there's about a 50/50 chance of a marriage ending in divorce - but the main reasons why couples divorce these days may surprise you. A 2011 British study found that the number-one reason for couples divorcing was not infidelity (the main reason for eight years running); it was falling out of love. Other reasons included cheating, "unreasonable behavior," midlife crises and abuse. Researchers speculated that an affair was more easily overcome in relationships in which couples still loved each other because there was something to fight for. One therapist interviewed for the study speculated that the public has seen several celebrity couples work through infidelity publicly and are more willing to do so now.
