Strongly disagree with this statement. It's called "Grass is Greener Syndrome"


Often not that simple

Agreed. These situations are usually very complex. But there are elements to them of "grass is greener". Heck, I have even fallen victim to that thinking myself! When things with my W were rocky, I would look around at other women and think how they were "perfect". Again, there is no such thing as perfect! I think looking for the perfect spouse is akin to chasing pots of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Unfortunately when it comes to marriage I think many spouse live by the motto: "When the going gets tough, leave."
