Several reasons why the divorce rate is high:
1.Very easy to get divorced.Think Las Vegas.Divorce paper can be signed sealed and delivered in 15 minutes practically.
2.People these days don't view marriage the way it was meant to be or at least the way my parents viewed marriage.
3.The epidemic desease of COUPLES having short attention span on their partners.i.e.- monotony of the marriage.That happens to everybody though and a lot of couples do not divorce because of this reason.
4.Rapid change of lifestyles excacerbated by the technology we are exposed to.It is amazing that everywhere now, you go to a restaurant ,being in a plane, at home or at work, people hardly talk anymore.Everybody is all glued to their own Ipads,laptops smartphones.Couples pounding away with their Ipads in a supposedly nice special dinner.Sad isn't it? what happened to open communication.
what you have agreed and concurred previously may not hold true anymore therefore that causes a rift and eventually build overtime, and finally divorce.
Not a positive outlook these days but look at marriage and divorce as the yin and the yang.It is almost expected these days. LOL!
