In America studies done by Jenifer L.
Barrater and Roseland of the Education Resource Information Center found that the 1 percent increase unemployment rate affected the decrease of 1 percent of divorce rates in America in 2011. This finding of this research makes a lot of sense because people were financially challenged to afford the legal cost. Age of marriage affects divorce in America research been by Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield Missouri stats that when a couples that got married under the age of 25 as a higher chance of getting divorce than those who got married after that age.
I read somewhere In the class book allowing the world wars that Divorce was greater social acceptance which Influence greatly In Americas today. One more factor I did wanted to add was Dual-worker Marriages. Dual-worker marriage couple usually has no or little time for relationship. Factors that I think that lead to divorce are cheating, abuse, financial stress, family. Cheating includes physical, emotional, or online cheating is relatively a new form of cheating online cheating involves lusting after someone or having an emotional connection with someone other than a spouse.
Financial stress factors into divorce in any ways in can dispute peace and harmony in the home and it can cause blame games causing a couple to battle each other instead of battling the problem. Abuse like cheating comes In different forms like physical, emotional and Just like cheating It comes In patterns and cycles. Other factors I think that leads In divorce are education finished, social class and family stability, fading romantic Interest and leftover from a prior relationships.
All those factors In one way or other contribute to divorce In some way other. Society has always impacted the way we live: the traditional family who ere farmed for food has gone away to the model families buying whatever they need in the urban areas. Divorce is no except to those changes. Stats show that divorce and marriage are effect by the same society we live in from depressions to wars to recessions. In my opinion I think it’s good that American’s are waiting to get married.
According to the book The Marriage and Family Experience” before 1974, the view of marriage as lasting till death do us a part reflected reality but today approximately 35 percent to 45 percent of all new marriages are likely to end in divorce. My dad has been married to my step mother for 14 years, at one point I suggest they should get divorce, neither one had any comments but as I looked back know I understand that part of the reason for staying together had a lot to do with me and my brother.
I believe that divorce Is acceptable If the marriage can’t be repaired after seeking help from multiple professionals and those professionals me the divorce is like a burning building and you and your family is on the highest floor with one fire escape but only one person if going to make it out alive. You may be divorced and happy but everybody else is affected for life.
