My parents said for years that they stayed together because of an agreement "Whomever asks for the divorce gets the kids"! When we were all out of the house, it changes to "Whomever asks for the divorce gets Mother (my grandmother)".
Don't know if it was the reason, but they were married for 53 years when my father passed away.
