The Divorce Rate in the United States is high almost 75 percent

Updated on December 9, 2010

 I have always believed in the keeping the family together for the sake of the children,

I read somewhere that the divorce rate in the United States is estimated to be high as 75.5 percent

and the average length of the new marriages is 25 months. 75 percentage of our citizens are obese

25 percentage is children from broken homes.Emotional neglect of children has increased 440 percent

 in the last decade. one in four women has been sexually molested, 25 percentage was children under

 the age of 10.. Suicide is on the rise, .. "One out of every six people in America will have serious

, function-impairing episode of flashback from their childhood, of seeing  their parents fighting, and

 one family member being haul off to jail.

Next to divorce, depression is on the rise, Antidepressant and anxiety reducing remedies is the number

 one medication on the market, and its the multimillion dollars business. Pharmaceutical company is

profiting more than ever.  Violence is evident everywhere and 50 percent prey to violent crimes.

 Teenager commit about four thousand murders a year, half of our children have experiment with

 alcohol and drugs by the time they reach the eight grade,

Many of them came from broken homes, that is why married couple should stay together for the sake

 of the children and keep the family unit together. many might say that it depends on what is happening

 in the marriage, especially if there are addiction, abuse or adultery,

A lot of folks had some good idea , when the question was asked, however, if we looked back over the years

 at the children that came from broken homes; you would realise that it wasn't for the best,

Please stay together for the sake of the children, let us keep the family unit together.

      Voted up because I would agree that family is key and remaining strong as a family will only benefit society as a whole in the long run. I think we will see a resurgence in family values as people come to realize that what has been important all along isn't just acquiring wealth and possessions. At least we can hope...
