Because we have the sinful nature and the love kindled may not be from God and sadly will fail. We also need to work on keeping the love alive. 

Why can't it be because of society  (government) our marriages fail?

couldnt it simply be people have become selfish?  after all, christ likens marriage to the church..and what he did for it.

I agree selfishness, failure to forgive

Some marriages fail because some people grow to not love each others and we live in a sufficiently accepting society to allow people to split up instead of being chained to each other.

Marriages fail for the same reasons that you will not find a friend in everyone you meet, people have different phylosophies, different interests, different behaviors, etc that can lead to a need to separate.

This is also why astronauts also need to be so psychologically stable, spending a lot of time without intimacy with the same people can become very stressful and tiring if there are tensions, these tensions can build up over time in a married couple that simply grew to no longer be in harmony with each other.

It is better for the parents, and the children, for them to have a divorce rather than live under the same roof and keep building the tensions.

perhaps rebuilding the altar in the homes..thats dangerous thinking . why not repair the relationship with god /s help.  its never too late to love again. .

Indeed @Judy just look at @Simon Post below He has covered it pretty well

Marriages fail because wives won't do this. Ephesians 5:22, 28-31. "Wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, even as Christ is head of the church; and he is the savior of the body.

marriages fail because husbands won't do this.Ephesians

5:25 Husbands, love your wives,

even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it;

I think marriages fail, cause

  • too many people think it is about "love" or "being in love" and don't realize that marriage and even love is about making a decision.
  • some women forget, that a lot of men need hierachry and the social acceptence for self esteem and for feeling loved and for being the protector of a family: "Wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife"
  • some men forget, that a lot of women need romance, emotions, and special moments for feeling loved: "husbands ought to love their wifes as their own bodies,..."
  • a lot of adventists are kinda forced into marriage way to early..."you have a boyfriend, marry him and we don't have to worry as church anymore if everything is ok and alright" => reconsider if you marry with 17-19 or with 25!
  • a lot of teenagers forget some advises from solomon: song of songs 8,4: "Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires."
  • Cause a marriage won't get automatically a good marriage only because you or both believe in also have to work on your marriage, improve, surprise, make compromises, and show and live your love.
  • Cause some forgive and some forget to fast or not fast enough.
  • Some seem to forget or ignore the sexual part of marriage.
  • Cause we are hard learning stubborn sinners.

Well really and truly  i will tell you all. Marriages Fail because people get into it for a REASON and not for a PURPOSE.  

You married because of Reason and not Purpose. People are not to marry one another because they love them, or because the mate is pretty, has money or any sort... that is all reason. 

What was the Purpose you married?
