Should the “emotionally divorced” be counted among “married couples”?


The “divorce rate” is around 50%. Presumably this count does NOT include couples that live in separate quarters of the house, “sexless marriages”, and couples who have lived apart for years without either party filing for divorce. How high would the “true divorce rate” be if we counted the “emotionally divorced”?

    The "emotionally divorced" are couples who are married in name only. I know of couples where one person lives in the basement and the other upstairs. They do their own thing. Marriage is more than a piece of paper. But that's all some have!
