In reality however i suspect the key change was the liberalization of divorce law, both religious & otherwise.

Agreed. No-fault divorce law effectively negated the marriage contract transforming it into a meaningless piece of paper -this while as well giving government free reign over what was at one time individual rights government could not infringe upon unless there was proven some higher necessity.

Now all one has to do is file some papers and the courts step in and start making decisions that in effect cut the matrimonial baby in half before the baby is even declared dead. No-fault divorce is akin to marriage abortion where only one party has a 'choice' and all others must simply bend to the will of that imposed by the force of government.

I don’t support the idea of unending and unconditional unions . But in the case of marriage the union is not unending as it is certant to end with the natural death of a party.

Strictly speaking it could also end with the maturity of the child & grandchild. But that may be more problematic than its worth.
