    a brief article (not necessarily my views)

    What is the current divorce rate in the United States? Has the divorce rate changed much over the past 5 to 10 years?



    The divorce rate in the United States has generally been going up throughout the 20th century until its peak in the late 1970s. The rate of divorce has been slowly declining since that peak. In the most recent data, there were about 20 divorces for every 1,000 women over the age of 15. This number is down from about 23 divorces per 1,000 women in 1978, but it is still significantly greater than the rate of divorce during the 1950s. At that time, the rate of divorce was about 5 per 1,000 women.


    The divorce rate has been climbing in every industrialized country in the world. There are two significant factors affecting the rising divorce rate in the United States and elsewhere: (1) men and women are less in need of each other for economic survival, and (2) gains made in birth control allow men and women to separate sexual activity from having children.


    A variety of factors are producing the current leveling off of the divorce rate. We may be at the end of the effects produced by the emergence of reliable birth control in the 1960s, but there are also other factors. Our population is aging, and in general longer marriages are more likely to remain intact. Also, more young people are cohabiting rather than getting married. The breakup of this kind of relationship does not get recorded as a divorce.

    congrats ube. i've already told ya i've been there once myself.

    the main problem with getting mine done was initially my ex-wife was supposed to be paying for it. the only problem with that was that once we went our seperate ways she went from being the most responsible and dependable person i knew to being comepletely hopeless. i have absolutely no idea how this happened, but it did.she ended up homeless for a period, stuck in the south of france. after that she hopped from job to job, and kept getting fired (which was really unlike her because she always excelled at work). i have a feeling that when she went back to france and was hanging around her friend sandrine again she ended up on drugs. i know sandrine had been through rehab a couple times for heroin, so i'm not sure if that was it. i'm pretty sure she was hitting pills and stuff too.

    long story short, i ended up footing the bill and having to do the court thing. it was a major pain in the ass being that she was so flakey, and also lived on the other side of the planet, so getting the paperwork together was a long and painfull process. so about 2 years after the fact it was finally handled, and i never have to worry about keeping track of her again. she can go off and od or whatever and follow both her parents to the grave doing the same shit they were doing. whatever
