I'm not willing to work at a relationship. I believe that a good relationship shouldn't require work, but if people are willing to do it, that's great for them, as long as they're not completely miserable. My parents didn't get along, but they were determined to not get divorced. It was horrible. They were both miserable and it made us kids miserable. They did their best to try to hide it, never argued in front of us, but there was just no sign of love there. Sometimes divorce is the best solution for everyone.
I don't think the notion that some marriages are just bad, negates the claim that all marriages take work. No one can possibly be completely compatible with someone else. There will always be differences that require compromise.

More significant, perhaps, is that we all grow and change. Some people grow together, and some grow apart.
