As the son of divorcees, who divorced after 17 years of marriage but are definitely better off and happy in their respective second marriages, i agree that sometimes divorce is the healthier option in the long run. However, i do believe that you should not get married unless you have the intention to make it work - if it doesn't work out because you change too much in divergent manners, too bad, but not making a sincere effort is not on.
As for what connstitutes marriage, i'd say something similar to what you seem to indicate - a sincere long term commitment by two people to each other through all that life has to offer.
