Divorce are due to spoilness and you can't tell them that cause it offend their egos they the human mind will just have to learn the hard way...
The numbers show the United States has the highest divorce rate in the world. A couple of years ago 2.2Million couples married and 1.1Million divorced, a shocking 50% and the numbers still are 50%. Thinking about getting married?
For couples under the age of 40, I think it is about 50% in the first 5-years and about 75% between the 5th and 10-year. For couples over the age of 40 it was said that the rate was only 1/3 of the above rate. The number one cause was cited as "money problems", which is another way to say mismanagement of funds. Most poor working class families with kids get income tax returns/credits over like $7000-$10,000 and that would pay the rent and part of the utilities all year if it was managed right, the problem is that most people have to spend the money in 30-days to prevent being cut off food stamps, free child care, etc, or they can't put it in the bank due to owing banks/creditors money and the money will get seized, so carrying around $8,000 in your purse will contribute to it going even faster. Almost all my friends my age have been divorced at least once. I am in early 30's. Most say they just got too stressed out over money and were too preoccupied with financial stresses to really focus on each other and just grew apart and wanted out/a fresh start.
I believe that it is 50%. May I give a short explanation of why the number is so high? Thanks. People (mostly young people), get sexually involved which generates emotional attachments that they interpret as love, for many people it is not love, it is lust. The other reason for high divorce rates, we settle for someone tolerable instead of waiting for the right one.
