Dawnstream That's what we do. We fall in love, and then we wear it out. We are so moved by the other's adoration, that we fail to see the burden they bring. They grate on our nerves, by no other means than proximity. After all those awesome kisses and big promises for the future, do you really have anything to talk about? Don't you just want to eat or sleep alone sometimes? Isn't it nice to read a book without interruption? Wouldn't it be nice to pick out your own bedspread or spend a weekend at the beach without having to deal with anyone else's feelings about it? It's the wear and tear of relationships, not a particular fault of Prince Andrey's.
Eman I think because it might have been an arranged traditional marriage. Maybe they simply lacked that chemistry which makes people fall in love.
Elli Because that's the way Tolstoy wanted it to be. And if he found that Lise would not be as good of a wife was Natasha, why not?
Daphne Kaamiño I know the question is hardly a spoiler but I know some answers will become spoilers and so I took the precaution of labeling it a spoiler infested question.

So going back to the issue, Lise is pretty and loyal. In fact, Prince Andrei confers to Pierre that she would be one of those women wherein a man's honor is always safe. So it confuses me as to why he would fall out of love with Lise soo easily and feel intensely for Natasha?!
