I've always held to the belief that if they agreed to have an "open" marriage, like the Stones did, in that they allowed both solo and group activities, they would have had the staying power.
Too true. Why do you think it was that they didn't? Was there an element of mistrust, perhaps between John and Paul, born out of competition or maybe a kind of boyhood gang allegiance? I know that when Ringo was hospitalised and couldn't go to Australia with them, GM had a terrible time trying to persuade GH not to quit the tour when they replaced Ringo with Jimmy Nichols although, interestingly, John and Paul had little trouble seeing the sense in it.
