People are not always happy in their relationship, even when they are married.

What sometimes turns out to be a problem is a personality clash, although it's weird that the people don’t get to know each other well enough to see what kind of person they are getting married to. Most couples go through (= experience) difficult periods, they are just people. They have arguments or rows, when things get more serious (= conflicts). One of the partners may have an affair and so betray their husband or wife (= regularly meet another man or woman they are attracted to). That's usually the beginning of the end. The unfaithful partner wishes things were the way they used to be, but it's usually too late then. People split up (= stop being together), when they don't wish to live together any longer, then one of them asks for a divorce or they both take a decision about getting divorced (= they officially want to stop being a marriage).

Things are relatively easy when there are no kids yet, because it's children who suffer most. With kids, one of the parents is granted custody of the children (= is the one to look after the children) by the court and the other one is given the right to spend some time with the children and is obliged to pay alimony, which is the money that is supposed to help the ex-husband/wife bring up the children.
