Sure. We got married at 19. About 5 years ago our relationship started to feel more and more like a room-mate arrangement. We had sex but neither one of us enjoyed it very much. We only talked about work and the dogs. We had no feelings for each other at all. We both wanted different things in life that didn't involve each other. We talked about it and decided that we didn't deserve to spend the rest of our lives with someone who just felt like a sibling, friend, and roommate; we deserved the chance to find love. We don't have any kids. Once we actually started communicating about it, the decision to divorce was a relief.
By the way, I was taught the exact same things about marriage being for life, the only reason for divorce is abuse and infidelity, etc. I believed it to the bottom of my heart. But when you've been married to someone for 10 years and 5 of those years feels like being married to your brother or best platonic friend, another fifty years of that starts to look awful. Better to part as friends.
