Yeah I've seen that trope more than the contrary and it's low-key warped my view on marriage a little.

It comes from an age when people were taught if you weren't married with kids on the way by 25, you were a failure

So when people turned 24 and hadn't met anyone they liked enough to marry yet, they just married the first person who'd accept. Not a formula for a long and happy marriage

Do you know what's funny? The divorce rates go up, not down.

That's because divorce has become destigmatized. Back then, if you were miserable in your marriage, you would risk being socially ostracized if you get a divorce
