The reason for Doran to unwillingly decide to marry Polly despite her wrong grammer, vulgar behaviour, unfavourable family is the social pressure. But in Temporary Matter by Jumpa Lahiri, the couple decides to divorce only because of giving priority to a trivival matter. Lack of communication is the reason for that, it's not because of any moral paralysis or social pressure but more about their own misunderstandings and misconceotions. Therefore, according to my knowledge of the both texts the reasons for the two incidents does not resemble that much.
