I agree. I think once a kid reaches adulthood, and the dynamics shift in the relationship, that's a different situation. Both of my parents have told me things about their marriage now that I'm an adult, that I had no idea of when I was a kid. It was already horrible to go through my parents' divorce, as an 8th grader, I didn't really need the extra baggage of the exact why. It already kind of feels like you have to choose sides when a divorce happens, even if it's not intentional (who you'll live with, etc), and Poncho's right - the bottom line is it takes two people to make a marriage work and most often than not, it's a jumble of things over a long period of time that makes it fail.
