Why is the divorce rate so high?

September 13, 2017 /

divorce rateWhy has the divorce rate increased in the last 50 years? Is it because the love isn’t there, or maybe never was? Or is it because people – specifically women – are realizing that they will be fine on their own? 50 years ago women were mostly housewives or homemakers, while the men went off to work to provide for the family. But as society modernized, women realized that they wanted to do things on their own. They wanted jobs and social lives outside of the home and outside of the marriage. More and more colleges began accepting women as students – which led
to them getting degrees and making careers for themselves, as they continue to do
today.

Women today aren’t as reliant on their spouses as they were then – they
don’t feel as if they need to be married to support themselves or their children.
They know that they don’t have to stay in a marriage if they aren’t satisfied, and
therefore they don’t stay. Divorce takes much less time than it did 50 years ago 
so it is becoming more common amongst couples; recent studies have shown that
the older generations (60s+) are high amongst those couples getting divorced, which
speaks to how much times have changed. The majority of senior couples who are
getting divorced most likely got married back when divorce was less common – so
who knows how long they stayed in an unhappy marriage just to conform to society
norms?

Divorce means the end of a marriage but it doesn’t have to mean the end of a relationship. As a child of divorced parents I can speak to how true this is; when my parents split up I thought it was the worst thing in the world for our family but I was wrong. My parents get along now better than ever. We spend holidays and birthdays together, we joke and laugh with each other, and I’ve never felt more sure about the amount of love we all have for one another.
