Exactly, it's not that they "did marriage" better, there was just a lot more stigma about divorce, and women/men stuck in situations that they didn't necessarily want to be in but didn't have the means to get out of. Women who did get out often had to start over b/c they were shunned from their communities etc. Hell I've even seen that happen in this day and age. People need to stop fantasizing about the good old days....there was so much more bull shit back then.
