It might be due to the residual influence of the kookier ideas propagated by "2nd Wave" feminism, it might be a result of our current culture's rather Liberal approach to love and relationships, and it might simply be the logical conclusion of the vapid inclination towards shallow materialism and "instant gratification" our society tends to encourage. In any case, however; the end results are more or less undeniable.
There are a lot of people in our society who simply cannot function in more committed relationships.
It's a damn shame, really, and frankly kind of frightening.

Remarry? See, now there's a caveat, men tend to say they wouldn't marry 'the same' after all that wouldn't work out.....I married an American. Next time though, I'm going to Brazil, marry, have a kid and they won't be able to extradite me.
I don't think it matters. People are people with similar strengths and flaws.
I'm guessing the implication is American women are too obstinate, etc., etc. I have a friend who worked with a guy who married a lady from the South Pacific he met through a catalog that connects American men with foreign ladies for marriage. Within a year she was earning extra income at night as a call girl. Told him its not his business.
I have another friend who married a lady he married from Russia. Drop dead gorgeous. Health problem meant he had to take a pay cut and reduce his work schedule after 7 years of marriage. She's now looking for someone else, considers herself single and goes out on dates looking for Mr. Right.
I also know other ladies from other countries who are devoted wives and good moms. One is a church elder's wife. It all depends on the person.
I think there might be something exotic about a foreign lady; oriental, Latina, whatever, but that wears off after a while. In opening nationality doesn't matter; character, intellect and personality do.
Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
