I am convinced those feelings are a large reason why nowadays a lot of women eventually file for a divorce, because they cannot deny their feelings of disdain towards their mate any longer. I wager that this is not a new phenomenon, but has been part of the female psychological make-up ever since. Back then they quenched their frustration by reading pulp romance novels or getting treated for "hysteria" by doctors (which is how the vibrator got invented btw.). The only difference is that today women CAN get divorced without being stigmatized, that they CAN earn their own money and that they are encouraged to show this disdain openly, should they wish to do so. Only, as parasites they don't really profit from any of these achievements.
Of course the reason for this is rooted the parasitic character of female existence. Women rarely "cherish" men for their pure being, but are mainly interested in what men can do for them, i. e. as providers of sex, semen or money/security and/or as emotional tampon. If they cannot get anything of that value from you, you are merely worthless to them and invisible and they will not give you anything of value in exchange. Many a woman is being tormented by that nagging fear of ascertaining whether the current host she's managed to get hold of is really "a good deal", whether he stays that way and whether het emotional grip on him (i.e. "romantic love") is still tight, so he won't leave them even when she's providing miserable sex to him, thereby cutting her off from his valuable "services". Even today women for the most part are NOT able to survive on their own and get anything of real substance done. (I'd say that's a big reason why prostitution still exist, since it benefits those women: making comparatively large sums of money with comparatively little skills or investment.) And even if they actually could, they'd rather take the easy way (because it's their female "entitlement") and have a man ("husband") securely provide for them, because that is the core ingredient of their "princess"-fantasies, to have a man "sweep them off their feet", spoil & pamper them, fulfill all their needs and never doubt that arrangement, so that she can ultimately "relaaaax". (This may sound harsh and unfair, but I swear this is only what I've been able to observe time and again and again. I wish it were different, but it just doesn't seem to.)
Feminism and the encouragement of absurd levels of female entitlement have only exacerbated this detrimental internal impulse.
I would say, that this effect - together with the negative effects of the modern, "flexible" capitalist economy on heterosexzal pair-bonding - is the main cause for the constant decline in Western birthrates, which is impossible to reverse short or mid term-wise.
"Neo-liberal" economic premises in concert with prevalent heterosexual misandry are bringing the West down, since the pyramid/ponzi-scheme of capitalist society requires a constant influx of new suckers. Heightened rates of immigration only serve to increase the problem of genetic colonialization though, so there's no viable solution in this direction either.
This might sound bleak to some, but my very personal opinion is, that "civilization" itself, ever since it got created with the turn to agriculture, has overall been just one big massive failure anyway and never provided the majority of human beings with even the most basic necessities for survival - this seems to be part of its pedigree, so why ever expect it to be the other way around? ;)
We were actually much better off as foragers (not the least in terms if SEX).
