It seems that you can’t make a fictional relationship, even a marriage, last very long. Granted their inspiration comes from Hollywood, a culture where marriage has all the romance of Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” and divorce attorneys are as rich as their clients, and almost as active. However, as author James Harrington points out, it seems like a stable relationship that makes it to the sequel and is about the trials and heights of staying together is the exception in fiction regardless of “reality”. As I also point out in the comments:

My pet peeve is when the couple is undone between movies to make the plot or subplot about bringing them together again, thus rehashing the same subplot. The studios, directors, writers, and editors seem to only want to tell about couples getting together but not the challenges of staying together.

Check out the other comments as well. It’s not just us noticing this trend.
