Part of the reason it does for so many

is because both parties go in to it needy, and expecting the other to fully meet their needs. To be blunt, no one person can meet all of another person's needs. To be even more blunt, if anyone tries to stay in a marriage, no matter how great it looks from the outside, without some divine intervention they are likely to fail. This is where the Christian who trusts in the finished work of Jesus has a vast advantage over anyone who is trusting in their own ability.

Flex and Colorado Sean both also pointed out some strong secondary causes why marriage can 'suck', including the stresses of unmet expectations and the constant pressure placed on us by our government. For example: if the 1950's tax rates were applied to purchasing power rather than income, the tax rate for anyone earning less than $60,000 a year would be nil.
