    The Truth About The Divorce Rate Is Surprisingly Optimistic

    "We’ve all heard that 50 percent of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce.

    And while that disheartening stat continues to get tossed around, the divorce rate isn’t really at 50 percent — and it isn’t rising either. In fact, a new piece in the New York Times’ data blog Upshot suggests that the divorce rate has actually been dropping for some time now. Looking at the numbers, the Times suggests the high divorce rate of the late 1970s and early 1980s may have just been a “historical anomaly,” rather than a trend.

    Below, a few of the most interesting tidbits from the Times:

    About 70 percent of marriages that began in the 1990s reached their 15th anniversary, up from roughly 65 percent of those that began in the 1970s and 1980s. And couples who wed in the 2000s are divorcing at even lower rates."

    People who marry & remarry & remarry interest me. It used to be that only celebrities had multiple marriages, then it filtered down to the general public. Maybe we're just immature these days, fickle and looking for something that doesn't exist or some other psychological reason. Not speaking of abusive or cheating situations, of course.

We both do what we want when we want as long as it doesn't interfere with family obligations. My wife also works part time for me doing my books.

    It's a historical anomaly because many people now have stable relationships without marriage, and back in the 70s and 80s that was far less pervasive. The corrosive to relationships is being married, not being in a relationship - exceptions agreed.

    Corrosive relationship because?????
    Dont mix romance and friendship wirh a protective economic contract.
    If humans havent figured out by now that relationahips have an unbalanced security level then they are nuts. Once upon a rime a man could take a wife .....(another human being, with brains, prospects,and a future) and do what ever pleased him.......that inbalance has been sliwly rectified.
    If this levelling out is seen as some kind if detriment to a relationshipthen bring it on. Its not about fickleness or boredom . Its about equality what ever a couple believes that ti be, but then turned upon.
    Feelings arent juat hurt, a human being is treated as a submissive, a worker and not nit paet of the management. Remember laws levellng our this imbalance are new, and people have to adjust.

    It's a damn sight easier just to reject the institution of marriage.

    You will have to explain why now.

    A good relationship is good whether marriage is involved or not.

    Re: Second marriage...

    my folks have been married for 58 years.
    first marriage and only marriage for both of them.
    my grand parents married for 60 years,
    aunt and uncle 64
    my cousin 40 years
    all with their original partner.
    I come from hardy stock, or tolerant, or maybe oblivious
    lol on my mom's side of the family. 5 out of 7 of us have divorced and remarried.

    Re: Second marriage...

    I have been married for 53 years and fully intend to attain diamond wedding status of 60 years and hopefully more ! I suppose the staying together thing has run in the family as my older brother never found any examples of divorce or separation when he was deeply involved with genealogy - such a fascinating and time consuming 'hobby'. He did, however, find a certain amount of criminality over 150 years ago and further back
