The other day I was speaking to a good old friend about relationships and I was wondering if marriage is dead? From my understanding is that marriage which end up in divorce are much higher than before. Then again women have many more liberties than before, then again the question comes into question if humans where meant to be monogamous. According to the CDC the stats for marriages and divorce are as follows
Number of marriages: 2,118,000
Marriage rate: 6.8 per 1,000 total population
Divorce rate: 3.6 per 1,000 population (44 reporting States and D.C.)
Essentially half of marriages that start will end up in divorce. I asked my self why is it that the divorce rate is so high? Could it be that society values other things now than before, or why is it that relationships get harder the longer you stay in them. Is it that maybe we don’t have enough experience in relationships or is it that we naturally aren’t suppose to be monogamous.
