Til Death Do Us Part

Yesterday I was watching the show Drop Dead Diva and there was a scene where one of the lawyers was discussing marriage with her client. She told her client she didn't want to date him because he was married and she ultimately wanted to believe in happy marriages. He asked her why because he thought a marriage that lasts forever is not living in reality.

Although this is on a show I've heard people express it and I don't understand. What's so wrong with thinking two soul mates will meet, fall in love, and live happily ever after? Is wanting to get married and have a happy family just living in a fantasy?

Generations before us were able make marriages last. Contrary to statistics a lot of our relatives are living in happy marriages, so why is it that my generation thinks it is impossible to take the vows and live by them?
