Are you thinking about divorce? Think again. Is it really worth it?

For anyone who thinks divorce is a free pass to freedom and a carefree, long and happy life, think again!

We won't even speak about the pain resulting when Divorce rears it's ugly head, issues present themselves that no one should have to contend with, issues such as:

Families taking sides, lining up and making comments or threats.
Friends that sometimes pull away when they are put in the position of taking sides and would rather not even to be "involved." This is sometimes devastating in addition to the recent loss of being left alone and feeling totally unnecessary.

In defense of the "friend," choosing between two friends can be a very difficult position in which to exist. Choosing to disappear from the scene, seems to be the only option.

SOME OF THE RESULTS OF THE DECISION TO DIVORCE:

The resulting pain, not withstanding, the home environments change...

A wife may have to return to work.

A husband may have been supporting the family before, but if he is the "leaver," he may be forced to take a second job, in order to maintain a new place to live. (Unless the leaver is a fornicator and is planning to mooch off of their co-conspirator, then they deserve each other.)
Otherwise, the leaver will have to pay, at a minimum for:

  • An additional home
  • Food
  • Utility bills
  • Telephone
  • Cable
  • Insurance
  • Taxes
  • Maybe an additional vehicle
  • Possible childcare costs if he/she has custody when working
  • Alimony may be a reality, also.
  • And after the spoils are divided up, both will most likely, have half of what they owned before, that means the home entertainment system, the boat, the pool and whatever amenities are important to them.
  • Savings will most likely be a non-issue.
  • All of these issues can "break the bank."
  • Retirement dreams become a myth!
SOMETHING OF NOTE FOR WOMEN:

More and more today, if the woman is making a generous amount of money in her chosen position, and her spouse has primary custody, she, not the man, may be charged to pay child support. (The Women's Rights Movement has come to roost.)

Divorce has become a common occurrence both in the United States and around the world. According to divorce statistics, it is estimated that between 40 percent and 50 percent of first marriages end in divorce in the United States. In some countries, divorce rates for first marriages exceed 50 percent. Second and third marriages in the United States have even higher divorce rates. According to statistics, second marriages fail at a rate of 60-67 percent, and third marriages fail at a rate of 73-74 percent.

Divorce statistics show that there are number of reasons why marriages fail. According to divorced couples, the number one reason that marriage fails is due to either a lack of communication or poor communication. The second most cited reason for divorce is martial conflicts and arguments. Thirdly, many divorced couples say infidelity led to divorce. While these are the primary reasons cited for divorce, statistics show that there are several underlying factors that contribute to these trends. These factors include, but are not limited to: age, education, income, religion, and cohabitation.

Age

Statistics show that those who get married in their mid to late-twenties are less likely to get divorced that those who marry at a younger age, and that this age group tends to be more satisfied in marriage than those couple who marry later in life. For divorced couples under the age of 20, the women are more likely to initiate the divorce; whereas for divorced couples over the age of 20, the men are more likely to initiate the divorce.

Education and Income

Education and income both play a role in divorce statistics. Data shows that a married couple with a higher education and a higher income is less likely to divorce than a couple with lower education and lower income.

Religion

While several religious denominations show a slightly lower divorce rate of 21-34 percent, other data suggests that those with no religious affiliation have a lower divorce rate than those with reported religious affiliations. It has also been suggested that pastors of local congregations, for various reasons, may not be aware of how many divorced couples are actually in, or have been part of, their congregations.

Cohabitation

Reports suggest that between 40 percent and 85 percent of couples who lived together before getting married had the marriage end in divorce.

Divorce statistics indicate that about one-fourth of adults in the United States have been divorced at least once in their lifetime. Characteristics of individuals that have a higher probability of divorce include:

o younger age at time of marriage
o lower education
o has children from a previous relationship
o cohabitation prior to marriage
o sexual activity prior to marriage

According to divorce statistics, it does not appear that only one factor contributes to a couple's decision to divorce. Although three primary reasons have been identified by divorced couples as the leading causes of divorce, it seems that underlying factors may contribute to these issues as well.
