Of Vows, Woes and Wows

At the outset, lemme state that i am experiencing all the wows, touchwood. if you are wondering what i am talking about, its marriage!! something that is increasingly becoming out of fashion.
i saw a malayalam movie this weekend, an old one, where the protagonist climbs the ladder of success by using women , promising them marriage etc. at that time, there were rare occurences of this happening. the poor scriptwriter would have had a tough time, if he had to write it now, coz its more of a norm. there are at least 5 movies either made or in the process of being made exploring various facets of infidelity, both by husband and by wives.movies are reflections of society, so it is only fair to assume that this is the way it is.
after one year of being married, i simply cant think of a reason why anyone would want to chuck the comforts of a long married life for a few pleasures once in a while. but i guess, lots dont agree. but i guess if they are being inundated with semi clad images of mallika sherawats, meghna naidus, beyonces (names changed to protect privacy ; -) )etc, one cant really blame them.
but is society driving to a point where marriages would become rare occurences as opposed to being a norm?? we'll wait for events to unfold, but meanwhile, your dose of
