    What may be the reason for increasing number of divorces?

    Divorce has now become a very common practice even among newly married couples.

    The list of whys is long. Increasing number of woman working. Increase in unwillingness to work things out. Picking the wrong person. Thinking someone can be changed. Less traditional roles in a household. I really believe the reasons are many.

    It's simply because women doesn't want to become submissive to their husband, also most men feel unconcerned about the qualities expected of a good and caring spouse.

      incomeguru.......You will excuse me, please, REALLY?  Did you seriously use the phrase, "submissive to their husband?"   
      How interesting.  I had no idea that individuals from another planet, could access HP.  I love your sense of humor!

    There can be many reasons for this. Culture, generation, upbringing ... so many things can play a role. Often it is because the love is not mutually as strong. It can also be because both if not one wants to move on. It could be increasing because it is generally more accepted or common and because of the changes in the role or men and women.

    The divorce rate is actually declining.  " Every state in the U.S. that tracks divorce rates saw a drop in the number of people getting divorced over the last 20 years. As of 2009, Nevada was the state with the highest divorce rate, with 6.7 divorces per every 1,000 people -- down from 11.4 in 1990. Massachusetts, on the other had, only had 2.2 divorces per 1,000 people." 4/11/2013 … 23122.html

      Again, the divorce rate is DECLINING!  What's the reason for THAT? More information like good advice on hubpages? (tee hee)  Interesting fact:  Baptists have the highest divorce rate among religions;atheists and agnostics, the lowest.

    A recent study was conducted that showed (women) initiate 66% or 2/3rds of all divorces in the U.S.
    Better job opportunities for women over the years has made it possible for them to be more financially independent. The more options one has the less crap they will take!
    Todays generation of women also have higher expectations of their men. Husbands are expected to pitch in with housework and helping out with the children much more than was expected of them in 1950s, 60s, and 70s.
    Last but not least the belief that one can "do better" and life is "short" is more prevalent today. Having this mindset is likely to keep someone from "settling" or wasting too much time in a marriage that is unfulfilling.
    There is no amount of "communication" or "work" that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want.
    Anyone who is unhappy in their marriage and chooses to stay is choosing to be unhappy. Each of us chooses our own friends, lovers, and spouse. I believe the number one cause for divorce is and always has been (selecting) the "wrong mate" for one's self. (Human beings make mistakes).
    When it's all said and done a divorce is nothing more than a public admission that a mistake was made. One man's opinion! :-)

      Well said! Some people marriage-hop, just like they job-hop, when they believe that someone can make their life happier, e.g. a wealthy suitor.

    Well, Kevin, you ask what THE reason may I'm guessing you want ONE integral cause for the "increasing number of divorces."   Since I have no research, nor statistics, at hand.....this has to be based on opinion, via observation & experience? 
    The "original," influencing factors, "expectations of society," for remaining married, against all odds.....have pretty much been tossed overboard.  The "Long-suffering, self-sacrificing spouse," is now a dinosaur. 
    I'd call it, "realistic progress."   Keeps wedding planners and divorce lawyers in luxury vehicles....and many more human beings, happy, healthy and successful....going forward.   
    This, in no way means that I sanction the high rate of divorce.  I lean more toward postponing or simply avoiding marriage, in the first place.  Save yourself the stress, mess and expense........June & Ward Cleaver were a complete fantasy.  However, Wally and the "Beaver" were and always will be, REAL.  Go figure.
